Dr. Dre is one of the most celebrated rappers of all time. He’s also a member of Apple’s executive class, thanks to the $3 billion acquisition of the headphones that bear his name, Beats by Dre.
But Dr. Dre also has a long history of physically attacking multiple women, and leaving life-long medical scars in multiple cases. He’s equally famous for getting away with it, with Apple CEO Tim Cook forced to apologize for Dre’s actions.
Dre’s hit list includes an infamous attack against former MTV host Dee Barnes, who Dre repeatedly punched, kicked, grabbed by the hair, and tried to drag down a flight of stairs at an LA nightclub in the early 90s. And, like a true coward, Dre had his bodyguard push off anyone that tried to stop the attack.
The brutal offensive was in response to a question asked on air by Barnes relating to the recently disbanded rap group, N.W.A.
Dre, eventually hauled into court, ultimately bragged about the incident, while Barnes still reports experiencing migraines to this day. “People talk all this shit, but you know, somebody fucks with me, I’m gonna fuck with them,” Dre said at the time. “I just did it, you know.
