Jerry Heller Is Suing All Involved With 'Straight Outta Compton' For Everything

By HHL Editors

We all saw this coming.

Eazy E's ex-manager Jerry Heller is suing Ice Cube, Dr. Dre, the Estate of Eazy-E, NBC Universal and others for defaming his character in the N.W.A. biopic Straight Outta Compton.

He claims he was incorrectly represented as a "bad guy" and "a sleazy manager who took advantage of Eazy-E, Dr. Dre and Ice Cube."

Specifically, he says the movie got it wrong when they portrayed him withholding a $75k check from Ice Cube, fraudulently inducing Cube and Dr. Dre to sign unfavorable contracts, and enjoying lobster brunches while the contracts were being signed. He also says he was never fired by Eazy-E.

The 75-year old is seeking all the profits from the film plus $35 million in compensatory damages and at least $75 million in punitive damages.
