Jerry Heller Sues Dr. Dre And Ice Cube For Millions Over 'Straight Outta Compton'

"Straight Outta The Lawyers Office"

Jerry Heller, 75, vehemently disagrees with his portrayal in “Straight Outta Compton” and has filed a $110 million, lawsuit to legalize his unhappiness.

Friday, he formally filed a defamation lawsuit against Dr. Dre and Ice Cube for categorizing him as the “sleazy manager who took advantage of Eazy-E, Dr. Dre and Ice Cube.”

TMZ reports that NBC Universal and the Estate of Eazy-E were also included in the lawsuit.

According to Heller, he was grossly misrepresented. He says he was never fired by Eazy-E and refuted the notion that he withheld a $75,000 check from Ice Cube. He also alleges that they stole from his 2006 book, Ruthless: A Memoir, to re-create scene in “Straight Outta Compton.”

"Straight Outta Compton" was one of the most successful movies this year.
