(AllHipHop News) Dr. Dre may be entangled in a bitter legal dispute with Jerry Heller, the mogul’s former manager is still coming to the defense of his former client, after a recent encounter with the police in Malibu.
According to reports, a man had come off the freeway and decided to park in front of and block the driveway to Dr. Dre’s beachfront home.
When the cops arrived Dr. Dre was handcuffed and searched by law enforcement in front of his home during the incident.
A dispute occurred and the upset motorist called 911 to report that Dre had pulled a gun on him in the racially charged incident.
“As you know, professionally I am a big Dr.Dre fan. Personally I am not such a big Dr. Dre fan, but this was all bulls##t. I mean, what did he do? He was just trying to leave his house, the guy had his driveway blocked,”
Jerry Heller told TMZ.com.
Despite his fame and celebrity status, Jerry Heller believed that Dr. Dre was treated different because he was a black man living in Malibu.
Heller agrees that if it had been a white artist like Eminem, he would not have been handcuffed in front of his own home.
“Without knowing all the facts, it seems to me like it was a racial issue,” Jerry Heller said.
