Dr. Dre is doing something that you’ll rarely see him doing: Opening up to the media. Dre sat down for an episode of HBO’s new series The Defiant Ones, and he opened up about the troubles in his life. He went through a heartfelt segment about the loss of his older brother Tyree Crayon, but more importantly, he talked about his physical altercation that he had with Pump Up! host Dee Barnes. You won’t want to miss what he had to say.
Dr. Dre is making one of the biggest confessions of his life. The confession goes all the way back to the 90’s when he attacked journalist Dee Barnes. While he’s currently focusing on his music businesses and personal life, he did admit that he completely lost it with Barnes back in 1991.
He’s apologized publicly before, but that was right before the movie Straight Outta Compton came out, so people think it was just a smart PR move.
This time around things seem a bit more genuine. The HBO series The Defiant Ones premiered on Sunday July 9th, and it gave people a look at what Dr. Dre is like behind the scenes. He sat down and opened up on different events in his life, including the loss of his brother.
He describes the Dee Barnes incident as a “major blemish” on his life, and we’d agree with that.
“Any man that puts his hands on a female is a f***ing idiot… He’s out of his f***ing mind and I was out of my f***ing mind at the time. I f***ed up. I paid for it. I’m sorry for it. I apologized for it. I had 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,” he said.
