Dr. Dre issues an apology to the women he abused.

Dr. Dre is facing his abusive past head on and taking responsibility for his terrible actions in a new statement to the New York Times.

The success of the N.W.A. biopic, Straight Outta Compton, opened a lot of old wounds with Dre’s victims when his abusive past wasn’t addressed in the film.

Dre’s ex, Michel’le and rapper Dee Barnes have been very vocal about being physically assaulted by Dr. Dre.

Dre, born Andre Young, cited being young, alcohol abuse, and a lack of structure for his unacceptable behavior. He added that he’s working every day to be a better man.

Twenty-five years ago I was a young man drinking too much and in over my head with no real structure in my life. However, none of this is an excuse for what I did. I’ve been married for 19 years and every day I’m working to be a better man for my family, seeking guidance along the way. I’m doing everything I can so I never resemble that man again.

I apologize to the women I’ve hurt. I deeply regret what I did and know that it has forever impacted all of our lives.

Apple also released a statement in support of Dr. Dre saying, “Dre has apologized for the mistakes he’s made in the past and he’s said that he’s not the same person that he was 25 years ago. We believe his sincerity and after working with him for a year and a half, we have every reason to believe that he has changed.”

Hopefully, Dre is a changed man and the women he’s hurt can accept his apology, heal, and move forward with their lives.
