Dr. Dre's career may be at an all time high, but his abusive past is coming back to haunt him.
The rapper and music mogul co-produced the box office success Straight Outta Compton, a biopic about his group N.W.A. that is receiving praise for its illustration of police harassment against black men.
But critics have also called out the film for ignoring allegations and criminal charges that Dre physically abused women.

It looks like Ann Curry will have the last laugh after all!
The ratings came out today, and it was not a good morning for Today!
It seems that with the exception of the 2012 Olympics coverage, the show has been consistently beaten in the ratings by rival Good Morning America.
GMA has pulled ahead by over 800,000 viewers daily ever since Today fired co-anchor Ann Curry at the alleged insistence of anchor Matt Lauer.
NBC even hired Ann back as a "special correspondent" to try to mitigate the audience backlash, but it seems it was too little too late.
We guess Ann Curry's revenge is a dish best served while watching Good Morning America!
