Following the biopics of R&B legends Whitney Houston, Aaliyah and Toni Braxton, Lifetime is in the process of working on the story of R&B superstar, Michel’le Toussant–and the roles of the most crucial characters have been cast.
The Michel’le Story will center on the life of Toussant, who quickly rose to platinum status upon being discovered by Eazy E and signed to the label, Ruthless Records. Aside from her professional career as a singer, she was married to Suge Knight and she also dated producer Dr.Dre, who she claims to have physically abused her on several occasions. Toussant has two children, Marcel Young (Dr. Dre) and Bailei Knight (Suge Knight). After years of reservation and direct insight to the lifestyle of N.W.A., her story will finally be shared with the world.
Rhyon Brown, who will play the role of Michel’le, is most known for her role on “Lincoln Heights.” She has also starred in shows like “That’s So Raven” and “Everybody Loves Raymond,” as well as appearing in 50 Cent’s Get Rich or Die Tryin’.
Produced by Sony Pictures and Think Factory Media, the film is set to begin production next month.
