Hip Hop Star Michel’le Making TV Movie With Thinkfactory

Hip hop recording artist Michel’le Toussaint, best known by her single-named moniker Michel’le, has partnered with Thinkfactory Media for a scripted television biopic, the company announced Tuesday.

With the working title “Girl From the Hood,” the film will focus on fame, abuse and its aftermath. Toussaint — who has children with hip hop moguls Dr. Dre and Suge Knight — has gone on record stating that she was a victim of abuse in both relationships. In 1991, Dre and Knight co-founded Death Row Records, which had a roster of talent that included Tupac Shakur and Snoop Dogg.

In addition to the scripted project, Toussaint and Thinkfactory are also set to collaborate on a documentary centered around the singer’s life.

“I am so excited about my partnership with Thinkfactory Media. For many years I was unwilling to share my personal experiences. I am now ready to open up about my career, relationships and family,” Toussaint said in a statement.

The announcement comes after the summer box office success of “Straight Outta Compton,” which portrays Dre and Knight and their involvement with Compton-based rap group N.W.A. Following the film’s release, Dre also issued a public mea culpa that stated, “I apologize to the women I’ve hurt.”
