Talking about her mother, she is a popular R&B singer in the ’80s and 90’s. Her best-known songs are “No More Lies” and “Something in My Heart”. She was one of six people who appeared on the R&B Divas: Los Angeles reality show on TV One.
Michel’le Denise Touissant was born on December 5, 1970, in Los Angeles California. She rose to prominence after the release of her hit singles in the 90s. The California native was signed to Ruthless Records and she dropped her self-titled album in 1989. It was her first album and it was produced by her ex-boyfriend, Dr. Dre. Contained in the album are the singles “No More Lies” which peaked at No.7 on the US Billboard Hot 100, as well as the hit song, “Something in the Heart”.

Bailei Knight’s mother suffered an abusive marriage
Michel’le married Suge Knight in 1999 while he was in prison. They had met each other while Michel’le was still in an abusive marriage with her ex-lover, and father of her first child, Dr. Dre. Michel’le was physically assaulted by Dr. Dre who was an alcoholic and was often prone to violent behavior. But Suge Knight came in when Michel’le was at her lowest point and then saved her by sending her to rehab. Moreover, Michel’le left her marriage with Dr. Dre after she discovered that he was engaged to another woman.
Then in 1999, Michel’le married Suge while in prison. However, she filed for divorce six years later and learned during the divorce process that Suge was still married to her ex-wife, Sharitta. The divorce process was finally concluded in 2007. Although Suge Knight was a highly respected music executive, his run-ins with the law seem to have put a smear on his achievements. He was slammed with a 28-year jail sentence for assault and related probation as well as parole violations in 1999. He also faced charges of manslaughter after he ran over two persons with his truck leading to the death of one of them. It would be 2037 before he is eligible for parole.
