Dr. Dre Apologizes To “The Women He’s Hurt.”


Dr. Dre‘s had a pretty good year, but sometimes, you gotta face old demons.

The N.W.A biopic “Straight Outta Compton,” topped the box office last week with a $56.1 million opening, but lots of people are saying that the film glosses over N.W.A’s rampant misogyny and ignores allegations- including criminal charges- that Dr. Dre physically abused women.

He doesn’t deny it- in fact, Dre confronted them on Friday in a statement to The New York Times:

“Twenty-five years ago I was a young man drinking too much and in over my head with no real structure in my life. However, none of this is an excuse for what I did. I’ve been married for 19 years and every day I’m working to be a better man for my family, seeking guidance along the way. I’m doing everything I can so I never resemble that man again.”

He added: “I apologize to the women I’ve hurt. I deeply regret what I did and know that it has forever impacted all of our lives.”

Apple, where Dr. Dre, 50, now works as a top consultant, also issued a statement:

“Dre has apologized for the mistakes he’s made in the past and he’s said that he’s not the same person that he was 25 years ago. We believe his sincerity and after working with him for a year and a half, we have every reason to believe that he has changed.”

Coroner: Dr. Dre’s Son Died From Overdose of Heroin and Morphine


Dr. Dre’s son, Andre Young Jr., died from an overdose of heroin and morphine, the Los Angeles County Department of Coroner confirmed to PEOPLE on Friday.

“This case has been closed, it’s been ruled an accident due to morphine and heroin intoxication,” coroner spokesman Larry Dietz told PEOPLE. The drug test results had been pending for four months.

Young, 20, was found unresponsive by his mother, Jenita Porter, 40, in their Woodland Hills, Calif., home on the morning of Aug. 23.

Paramedics pronounced Young – who was remembered by friends as an optimistic young man – dead at the scene.

Porter told investigators that her son had been out with friends that night, and she recalled hearing him snoring around 5:30 a.m.

“Dr. Dre is mourning the loss of his son,” the rapper’s publicist Lori Earl previously said in a statement. “Please respect his family’s grief and privacy at this time.”
