Dr. Dre Apologizes for Assaulting Female Journalist

dr dre apologizes slapping dee barnes

Dr. Dre is finally apologizing for slapping journalist Dee Barnes back in 1991.

In his HBO documentary, “The Defiant One’s,” Dre admits he physically attacked the journalist after he felt she negatively portrayed NWA. Here’s what happened:

“He picked her up by her hair and “began slamming her head and the right side of her body repeatedly against a brick wall near the stairway” as his bodyguard held off the crowd with a gun. After Dre tried to throw her down the stairs and failed, he began kicking her in the ribs and hands. She escaped and ran into the women’s restroom. Dre followed her and “grabbed her from behind by the hair again and proceeded to punch her in the back of the head.”

And here’s Dre’s apology:

“Any man who puts his hands on a female is f*cking idiot. He’s out of his fucking mind, and I was out of my fucking mind at the time. I fucked up, I paid for it, I’m sorry for it, and I apologize for it. I have this dark cloud that follows me, and it’s going to be attached to me forever. It’s a major blemish on who I am as a man.” – D. Dre

Has he apologized to Michel’le yet?


  1. So many black people have criticized the man who recorded Maia Campbell behaving badly. They say he exploited her. Guess what family, Dr. Dre has been exploiting the pain and suffering of black people for over thirty years! Not one single black person has criticized him. Most black people dance to his destructive, satanic music. Dr. Dre is a multi millionaire who lives in a mansion in Malibu while millions of black people are starving.

    • That guy didnt expose nothing maia been a crackhead and yes dre been a woman beater but when PAC called him gay he didn’t wanna respond I’m like go on Dre go beat PAC you had no problem going to where dee worked at he should have did PAC, and suge the same way but yeah we know suge had dre beat at the vibe awards

  2. Dr. Dre donated $35 million dollars to the University of Southern California. He did not donate any money to the Historically Black Colleges. Why do we continue to support this man? Why have so many black people wasted their money buying his overpriced headphones?


      • PAGING ROLAND MARTIN!!! WENDY WILLIAMS YOU CAN USE WHATEVER NAME YOU WANT I KNOW ITS YOU! I get how you feel Alfredia, but that is so not true. I mean its kinda true, Alabama A&M I see you , but not to be said when mix company is reading. dre should have given money to historically black colleges, period. Who bought his music, who gave him this platforms, US. And If u think black people don’t run black colleges, who do you think runs white colleges. Believe me aint nothing better than a campus/Greek/football/ sorority/ cheerleader/ party on a Friday night when you are in one so go and have fun because dam i miss being young


          I side with Dr. Dre. blacks go to the colleges he funded in large numbers.

          • Melinda is right. Dre, NWA and Dre’s artists including Eminem mad FAR more money from white kids who bought the CDs and albums from Tower and Virgin than he made from Black kids. Did anyone go to an NWA concert past 1990? I did, and it was 3/4 white, 1/4 Black audience.

      • Alfredia I have a question, why would a black man donate that much money to a racist University who has a 4.8 billion dollar endowment?

        • @NBA is fixed….You have a beautiful mind…..but remember the sheep/masses will blindly follow the flock ….thank God we aren’t sheep ??

  3. Dre is nothing but a punk a$$ bit**. He can take his apology, turn it sideways and stick it straight up his candy a$$.

    • Should have known he was a woman hater… Didn’t he wear makeup back in the day?

          • Yeah cube said lipstick and lace…

            So dl fags beat women because they secretly wish they were one? Mommy issues or because they know if they stepped to a man they would get THEIR ass beat, when they really just wanna screw them…things that make you go hmmmm….

  4. Dee Barnes is lucky to be alive. Dr. Dre tried to kill her! For some strange reason, this incident was not in the NWA Movie, Straight Outta Compton.

    • Jerry heller paid her and he paid tairrie b off when Dre beat her ass

      Kind of odd that dre beating a white woman didn’t make big news in 1990 heller paid her off quick

        • Nws was huge though but still dre put his hands on tairrie b who was his labelmates

          • NWA was huge but Dre didn’t really blow up(mainstream) til the Chronic and that white chick was a nobody …name one or two songs by her? I’ll wait …

  5. I dont know why Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, and other great rappers sit by while the so called Chance the Rapper, No one ever heard of, gets awards and fame he hasn’t earned?

    • There is a laundry list of punksters representing rap and none of the real so called rap artist come forward to reclaim that genre of music. They should call rap robotcrap.

    • What do they deserve? They helped to promote evil, sick and twisted agendas that helped to destroy the minds of many of our youth, while they just set back and benefited. Fuck them. Let whatever they created die with them. They deserve nothing beyond what they have; if that even. Im not a fan of chance, or his mumble mouth rapping, but at least he’s “trying” to do some good.

  6. I wonder if he’s ever laid hands on his white h0e. Probably not, cause she’s got a daddy, brothers and uncles with shot guns who KNOWS what team they belong to.

  7. Was a police report done. Did he serve time. Did the victim sue. It seems they have more evidence on this guy than Cosby yet Cosby is the one going thru the ringer.

    • Back in the time that Dre beat up Dee, a woman had to press charges in a case of domestic violence. I assume that Heller paid her to NOT press charges.

  8. This is why all these satanic niggaz need to go the way of biggie & 2pac. These nighaz havent contributed shit to the black community besides negatove energy. Fuck all that hbcu shit, it run by the zionist @ the top, & in order to be successful they want u to pledge to a homosexual demonic group. This is why our community is shit. Fuck dre hes rich because he worka for satan. So do change the bitch bky rapper. Fuck em all, encourage the kids to be engineers. U niggas look at the rallers like its a history lesson. Please burn nem

    • it is wrong to say the great tupac’s name in the same sentence as that big fat azz mouth full of shit U know who

    • Amen! In order for black folks to e successful in this game, they have to pledge to these bullshit Greek fraternities. Fuck all these rappers. I may enjoy some of their music, but that’s as far as it ends. All these rappers are apart of these beast, and support all the industries that uphold their fuckery.

  9. PAC and big served the satanic agenda too which is why they are not here anymore sex, drugs, death, dre didn’t flirt with the suicide premature death thing like PAC and big but they was all in in the agenda

    • They aren’t here because they were bigger than the machine.

      Any black man seen as a threat has to be exterminated, that east vs west was a ploy to get rid of men who had the hearts of their community and if they decided to make change, which is what Pac was trying to do, they would have succeed.

      Pac had a plan to start being a leader and creating change.

  10. Quote from Dr. Umar Johnson, “The greatest commitment to black people is being committed to a black woman.”

    Dr Dre beat up two black women and married a white woman. Dre is one of the biggest traitors to the black community. Throw away your Chronic and NWA cd’s and destroy your Beats Headphones. FUCK DR. DRE! #BoycottDrDre

  11. Looks like the best artists has the biggest demons dre ain’t the only woman beater everybody excuse Chris brown, and what about hay z admitting to cheating on Beyonce

    Suge beat women, nas beat kelis, James brown beat all his wives

    • The best? According to who?

      And no person with a moral compass excuses any of that shit.

      • You don’t know everything as much as you live online and through all these people you claim to hate so much.

        • Well the irony is that we never would have heard of any of these things had it not been for the internet dumbass. Apparently you didn’t seem to know that the internet holds valuable information. See what happens when trying to sound smart fails?

          • LMAO, what did you say that was smart?

            You are one of those morons who does not know books hold the real information, how about picking one of those up, you low life bitch!

            You would have no life if it weren’t for the interaction you have here, you know no one likes you.

            Your immobile whale ass prob has a permanent ass indentation on the sofa!

  12. Quote from Dr. Dre, “With a heart full of terror, I see the devil in the mirror.” I’m not making this up, Dr. Dre said this on the song Natural Born Killers.

    • Dude shut up…we got it every person in hwood has sold their soul.

      Now you can stop with the bitch-style quotes….smfh.

    • Yep. Dre and all of the Hollywood degenerates sell their souls for fame, and fortune. However they all later realize that it’s such a shitty deal. I don’t feel bad for any of them that weren’t sold to the industry as children.

    • Yea cube said ain’t seen the sun in 66 days

      Dre and cube both was into the satanic agenda sex, drugs, and death

      Cube with the skull on his shirt in the predator album which is another word for killerthrn the kill at will album where cube hands you a gun

      Dre and cube continued to put out gangster rap after they both left ruthless

  13. Dre probably still has beaten women post 90’s, and even likely beats his wife; as he’s rumored to have been. These people don’t ever change, or learn from their mistakes because they’re never held accountable for their actions. The type of environment that Hollywood fosters, and grooms teaches a sense of entitlement, and elitism. The silver lining here is that Hollywood is getting read to fall, and we will especially begin to see it come tumbling down in the year 2018, with the film industry being hit in the gut. Dre and all these other black celebrities are going to be in for a very rude awakening when Hollywood does finally collapse. I don’t feel any sorrow, or sympathy for any of what their about to reap.

    • Shut the fuck up, you youtube conspiracy ho.

      Go get some real dick so you can stop sucking NBstan’s…hey NBstan here is a bitch for you, she is prob too dark and fat for your liking though…lol.

      • LOL, and you have the nerve to try and sit up and tell someone they “live on the internet” ??? Looks to me like you just sit around, waiting for me to reply so you can talk your shit. Some fucking life you have.

        • You do, I run a tech co, so don’t worry about my life…you live here and every other fucking site so you aren’t hard to find. You and your life are shit.

          All your bitter ass does is try to talk shit, because your life is complete garbage.

          Go outside and get some exercise your fat, ugly from the inside out ass could use it.
