Michel’le Denise Toussaint, better known simply as Michel’le is the platinum recording artist, songwriter, and author you probably remember during the early to mid 90’s. During the height of her success she had hits with N.W.A., Ruthless records and by herself like, “Nicety” and “Something In My Heart.”
But her soft, sweet voice and buttery R&B vocals hit the pain of an abusive relationship that took time to heal.
Michel’le was originally a featured female vocalist on World Class Wreckin’ Cru’s 1987 single “Turn Off the Lights.” Soon she caught the attention of Eazy-E and signed to his label. Dr. Dre served as the sole producer on the South Central native’s self-titled debut album and because they worked so closely in a professional manner, their relationship soon became intimate
During their relationship, which included parenthood and an engagement, Dre raised his hand to Michel’le several times. According to Michel’le he broke her nose, cracked her ribs and blackened her eyes. The relationship prompted a downward spiral into substance abuse for the singer.
