Dr. Dre Issues Apology To “Women I’ve Hurt”

Dr. Dre

Following recent revelations of past domestic abuse claims toward women, Dr. Dre has issued a statement to the New York Times on Friday (August 21), in which he apologizes to the "women I've hurt."

"25 years ago I was a young man drinking too much and in over my head with no real structure in my life," the super producer writes. "However, none of this is an excuse for what I did. I've been married for 19 years and every day I'm working to be a better man for my family, seeking guidance along the way. I'm doing everything I can, so I never resemble that man again."

While he doesn't name anyone specifically, he makes a general apology.

"I apologize to the women I've hurt," he said. "I deeply regret what I did and know that it has forever impacted all of our lives."

Apple also released a statement to the paper, regarding the topic.

"Dre has apologized for the mistakes he's made in the past and he's said that he's not the same person that he was 25 years ago," the Apple statement reads. "We believe his sincerity and after working with him for a year and a half, we have every reason to believe that he has changed."
