Dr Dre, Ice Cube and Producers of ‘Straight Outta Compton’ sued to court

Rapper and producer, Andre Young better known as Dr Dre, Ice Cube and several producers of hit movie “Straight Outta Compton” have been sued by former N.W.A. manager, Jerry Heller over his portrayal in the music biopic.

Heller’s lawyer Richard Shapiro said his client’s portrayal as a ‘sleazy thief ‘in the biopic was unacceptable, dishonest and inaccurate, as he spent six decades in the music business and he still gets up every day and goes to work.

The lawsuit claims defamation, trade libel, false light, breach of oral contract and intentional interference with a prospective economic advantage and is seeking more than $100 million dollars at trial.

The lawsuit also names NBC Universal, Eazy-E’s estate and Comptown Records among the list of defendants.
