Luenell Calls Dr. Dre A ‘Notorious Woman Beater’: It Seems Like You Can Get A Pass If You’re Popular
Comedian Luenell doesn’t want rapper/producer Dr. Dre‘s alleged violent past with women to be overlooked because he is famous.
In a recent interview, the comedian calls him a woman beater and adds that he does not get a pass just because he makes good music.
“Now, one would say, does Dre get a pass for being such a notorious woman beater ’cause he makes good music? One would say,”
She added that she wouldn’t want to see an icon like Dr. Dre die, but doubles down on her views of him being a ‘notorious woman beater.’
“One would say that some people ain’t gonna be praying for Dr. Dre. A lot of women, but you can get a pass, it seems, if you’re popular. He a notorious woman beater. I love Dr. Dre’s music, don’t get it f*cked up, and I don’t want to see any of our icons die.”
Luenell recalls the stories that his estranged wife Nicole Young revealed when she said that the producer had been violent with her.
“But, I don’t…we can’t…some of the charges his wife was making was even that he had been violent with her,”
“His track record sucks.”
Luenell says that Dr. Dre’s history with domestic violence is a,
“character flaw that he just can’t—he might go years and not do it and then he might just go off.”

Nicole Young was not the only ex that has accused the producer of being abusive in their relationship.
In 2016, singer Michel’le appeared on The Wendy Williams Show, promoting her new Lifetime biopic, Surviving Compton: Dre, Suge & Me, Michel’le discussed the years of physical abuse she allegedly suffered from Dr. Dre, along with Suge Knight. Check out a few excerpts below.
She talked about staying in an abusive relationship with Dr. Dre:
“I stayed because it was normal. After the first hit, you don’t think they’re going to do it again. I didn’t call the police because I didn’t want him to go to jail. All the men around me were always going to jail and [would] be gone for years and I didn’t think that was a good idea. I just took it as a way of him showing me he loved me.”
However, sources close to the rapper deny any abuse and said her claims are:
“the act of a desperate woman who finally realized that the iron-clad prenup she signed doesn’t win her the lottery.”
“In their 26 years together, there has never been any hint or claim of threatened or actual physical violence and the insinuation is an insult to actual victims of domestic abuse.”
Dr. Dre has since been released from the hospital and has made a full recovery.
