Dr. Dre, Ice Cube, Eazy-E sued for at least $100 MILLION by “Straight Outta Compton” bad guy 

STRAIGHT OUTTA CHILL MODE… 

 
Jerry Heller –aka the villain of the NWA biopic, Straight Outta Compton–is SUING the estate of Eazy-E, Dr. Dre, Ice Cube, and everybody the hell else for defamation of character. 

 
OOOOH….

SO CATCH…

 
Apparently, the 75-year-old former music exec is GUNNING for a minimum of $100 MILLION with claims the way he was portrayed in SOC was false and damaging. 

 Dr. Dre, Ice Cube, Eazy-E sued for at least $100 MILLION by  

According TMZ, Jerry want here for being depicted as “the bad guy” and “a sleazy manager who took advantage of Eazy-E, Dr. Dre and Ice Cube.” And he says there are other lies in the movie, including:

 
— He withheld a $75k check from Ice Cube
— He fraudulently induced Dre and Cube to sign unfavorable contracts 
— He enjoyed lobster brunches while the contracts were being signed
— He was fired by Eazy-E

 
BUT THAT AINT ALL…

 
N.W.A.’s former manager also says he never gave Cube and Dre permission to use his likeness nor did he allow the movie producers to reference his book for some of the film’s pivotal scenes. 

 
He’s suing for $35 million in compensatory damages and at least $75 mil in punitives … plus he wants NBC to cough up profits from the flick’s ticket sales.  

 
BLOOOP…

 
So far, no word from Cube or Dre concerning the lawsuit…
