Jerry Heller Is Suing Dr. Dre and Ice Cube
While fans and critics across the globe loved the new N.W.A. biopic "Straight Outta Compton," former N.W.A. manager Jerry Heller wasn't into the film at all.
Heller is so upset over the film that he has filed a suit against Dr. Dre, Ice Cube, the estate of Eazy-E, NBC Universal, and other parties associated with the Straight Outta Compton biopic, as TMZ reports.
According to TMZ, the film portrayed him as "a sleazy manager who took advantage of Eazy-E, Dr. Dre and Ice Cube," and that it was filled with factual inaccuracies.
Amongst those alleged inaccuracies: Heller says he wasn't fired by Eazy-E, nor did he push Dr. Dre and Ice Cube to sign bad contracts or withhold money from Cube. Heller is suing for $35 million in compensatory damages as well as $75 million in punitive damages. He also wants all profits from the movie.
So Heller wants a whopping 110 million for this case and all future profits from a film he said was filled with inaccurate information? With all of the background info they can prove on things Heller did in the past to the group, I doubt he will see a dime from this.
