“Surviving Compton” aired this past weekend on Lifetime and got mixed reactions.
The story is about Michel’le Toussant and her abusive relationships with both Dr. Dre and Suge Knight.
The one-time R&B star (1989’s “No More Lies”) dated Dr. Dre in the early 1990s, when he and N.W.A. were on the road to stardom. The couple lived together and had a son in 1991. Oddly enough, Michel’le later married Dre’s Death Row Records counterpart, Suge Knight, with whom she had a daughter in 2002 (they divorced in 2005).
Suge Knight has been arrested and charged with murdering Tupac Shakur. At least that’s what the creator of this viral video wants us all to believe.
The “Tupac Killer Arrested” rumor has been trending on Google News this week, along with others like the untimely passing of Eddie Murphy and Morgan Freeman (both of which are alive and well I might add).
This new video that’s in circulation leads one to believe that the 15-year-old cold case of Tupac’s murder has been cracked with the arrest of the Death Row mogul.
Suge Knight is in child support hell…. again! Last year, the larger than life music mogul got hemmed up in court by former death row singer, Michel’le Toussaint, who happens to be his ex-wife and the mother of his 7 year old daughter, Bailei. Michel’le was after Suge for failing to pay over $40,000 in unpaid court-ordered spousal and child support. (click HERE if you missed it).
Now Suge’s being sued my his other baby mama but according to his bank account…she waited too late. Continue Reading…
Remember Michel’le from back in the day? The singer had a squeaky, high-pitched speaking voice which totally changed once she opened her mouth to sing. Anyway, the old school singer has filed child support charges against her ex-hubby, Marion Suge Knight and is seeking over $40,000 of unpaid court-order spousal and child support for their 7 year old daughter, Balei (pictured above):
Singer Michel’le has filed child support charges against her Ex-husband Marion Suge Knight, reports the Wall Street Journal. Michel’le is asking for $40,476 in three-months of unpaid court-ordered spousal and child support. In addition to the $40,476, she is asking that she receive $13,492 in child support each month for her child Balei, whom she had with the former head of Death Row records seven years ago. In 1997, Toussaint “agreed to marry Knight while he was serving a prison sentence for assault and battery.” Soon after Bailei’s birth in 2002, her relationship with Suge Knight ended.
In the coming months, Michel’le will be heading to bankruptcy court since Suge is believed to be bankrupt; Suge filed for bankruptcy three years ago.
Michel’le also has another son named Marcel, with whom she had with rapper/producer Dr. Dre. (Source)
A lot of people are surprised to hear of Michel’le’s links to both Dre and Suge but she and Dre were in a longterm relationship way before he even left the World Class Wrecking Crew. Michel’le was even featured on a WCWC song, “Turn off the lights” and her 1st CD album was produced by her then boyfriend Dre. I’m almost positive her relationship with the both of them was one of the factors in Death Row’s demise.
