They became engaged, but Dr. Dre’s abusive behaviour towards Marcel’s mother put an end to their relationship – their romance has been re-told in the television movie “Surviving Compton”.

Michel’le Biography

Marcel’s mother is a popular singer, but has struggled for a better part of her life with drugs and bad relationships. Born as Michel’le Denise Toussaint on the 5th December 1967, in Los Angeles, California USA, she is the daughter of David West Jr. and has a brother Ray West.

She hasn’t said much about her early life, but that she desired to become a singer from an early age. Michel’le started her career as a member of the World Class Wreckin’ Cru music group, consisting of female vocalists who are of Louisiana Creole ancestry. The popular single “Turn Off the Lights” by the group made Michel’le popular and she was then signed to Easy-E’s Ruthless Records.

It was through World Class Cru that she met Dr. Dre.

She was frequently used as a vocalist for Ruthless Records’ produced albums, and in 1989 released her debut album “Michel’le”, produced by Dr. Dre, and which achieved gold status. The album spawned such hits as “No More Lies” – which landed on the 2nd spot on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, and at the No. 7 on of the US Billboard Hot 100 – “Nicety”, Keep Watchin”, and “Something in My Heart”, among others.

Her second album came out only in 1998 “Hung Jury”, then she apparently remained out of music until the early 2010s, when she released her first single “Freedom to Love” in 2011.

Since then, she has released several singles, including “It Still Hurts” (2014), “Moonlight” (2016), used as a soundtrack for the film “Surviving Compton”, among others.

To speak further about her achievements, Michel’le also appeared in the reality show “R&B Divas: Los Angeles” (2013-2015).

Michel’le and Dr. Dre were together from 1988 until 1996; she talked about his abusive behavior towards her that brought the end to their relationship. He would beat her, and during one altercation broke her nose, and she had to have it surgically corrected, also a cracked rib and other injuries.

He even shot at her but missed by a few inches. However, the main reason they broke up was his relationship with another woman, to whom he was also engaged.

Following their split, Michel’le started a year-long self-medication with prescription pills and alcohol. She befriended Deth Row Records CEO and co-founder Suge Knight, who helped her overcome her problems by sending her to rehab. The two married in 1999, despite Knight being incarcerated at the time. Nevertheless, they welcomed a daughter Bailei, but the two divorced in 2005.

It turned out that their marriage was invalid, as Suge Knight was still married to his wife Sharitha. Suge was also abusive – she claimed that he had hit her once, which dislocated her jaw.

Dr. Dre Short Bio

Born Andre Romelle Young on the 18th February 1965, in Compton, California USA, he is the son of Theodore and his wife Verna Young. His parents split just three years after his birth, and the divorce came in 1972.

After this, he went to Centennial High School but again had to transfer, this time because of his poor grades, to Fremont High School in South Central Los Angeles. He wanted to enroll into an apprenticeship program at Northrop Aviation Company, however, his poor grades cut him from the leading aircraft manufacturer.

Dr. Dre enjoyed fame in the late ‘80s and early ‘90s, and was one of the members of the gangsta rap group N.W.A. They popularized explicit lyrics, and focused on bringing the experience from the streets into their verses.

His debut solo album came in 1992 following the split of N.W.A, entitled “The Chronic”, earning him a Grammy Award. His second album came only in 1999 entitled “2001”, which was a complete success, topping the R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart, and landing at the No. 2 on the US Billboard 200 chart. Also, the album achieved six times platinum status in the US, with sales of around eight million. With the start of the 2000s, he focused more on his work as a producer, and worked with a number of popular rappers, including Eminem, Xzibit, Snoop Dogg, Busta Rhymes, Jay-Z, 50 Cent and many others.

He returned with his own album in 2015, entitled “Compton”, which wasn’t as successful commercially as his previous releases, though it still topped several charts.

Dr. Dre has seven children with five women, but is notorious for his history of abusive behavior towards women. He was married to Nicole Young from 1996 to June 2020 and they have two children, Truice and Truly. His son Andre Jr. died when he was 20 years old of a drug overdose.

Dr. Dre’s net worth has been estimated to be around $820 million as of mid- 2020.

Who is Aaron Kendrick De Niro?

Aaron Kendrick De Niro was born in the USA, on 20 October 1995 – his zodiac sign is Libra and he holds American nationality. Aaron is perhaps only known for being the son of the famous American actor Robert De Niro and his former girlfriend Toukie Smith, who is an American actress and model – both Aaron and his twin brother Julian were delivered by their surrogate mother.

Childhood and education

Aaron is quite secretive when it comes to his private matters and not a lot is known about his early life and education – he was raised alongside his twin brother and later his half-brothers, Elliot and Raphael, and half-sisters Helen and Diahnne.

Aaron’s parents split when he was only one year old, and in 1998 his father married Grace Hightower, an American actress, singer and philanthropist, but although they too split, in 1999, they didn’t divorce, and then renewed their vows in 2004 – it was reported in 2018 that Robert and Grace had split, but to date there’s no confirmation of a divorce. Before Aaron’s mother, Robert was married to the American actress and singer Diahnne Abbott, exchanging vows in 1976, but divorcing in 1988.

It is known that Aaron attended a local high school from which he matriculated in 2013, and it is believed that he hasn’t so far enrolled at college.

Aaron’s career

Aaron has been staying away from the media’s attention and not a lot is known regarding his career. He is not part of the film industry, although it’s believed that his father tried to help him work on his skills and win roles, but Aaron was uninterested. There are rumors circulating the internet that Aaron is not very close to his family, which is also why he has all but disappeared from view, especially of the media.

Love life and marriage

Aaron hasn’t talked about any women he might have dated which is why there are many people out there who believe him to be gay, however, nothing has been confirmed. There are some who have claimed to have seen Aaron holding hands with a mysterious woman in the streets of Los Angeles, but no evidence has been provided to support these claims.

As he hasn’t commented on the rumors surrounding his love life, as of November 2020, Aaron is apparently single, hasn’t married and doesn’t have children.

Age, height and net worth

Aaron’s age is 25. He has short brown hair and brown eyes, is 5ft 8ins (1.73m) tall and weighs around 150lbs (68kgs). As there is no information on his career, and therefore income, his net worth is unknown. However, as of November 2020, his father’s net worth has been variously estimated at amounts over a minimum of $300 million, of which Aaron may be a beneficiary.

https://www.instagram.com/p/CATiXKbhQka/

She probably benefits from the success of her father as well with Stallone having a net worth of over $400 million, accumulated from being a part of some of the most successful film franchises in history.

Early Life

Sophia Rose was born with a small heart defect – it was discovered by doctors that she had a hole in her heart, which led to open heart surgery as a newborn to amend it before it could get any more complicated.

She grew up in Miami alongside two sisters, and with two half-brothers though they aren’t as close, being from her father’s previous marriages.

Due to her heart condition, she lived a mostly strict lifestyle, with much of her food controlled while she wasn’t allowed to engage in physical activities as her heart was still developing. She grew close to her father during this time, who focused on teaching all his offspring correct speech, as it is a problem that he had to deal with all his life.

Education and Career

Sophia Rose did some physical activities with her father, but kept it toned down to avoid any unnecessary problems.

After matriculating from high school, she enrolled at the University of Southern California where she took up a degree in Art History, but later changed her mind and shifted to Communications with a minor in Entrepreneurship. While she grew close to her father, she set her sights on following a career similar to that of her mother.

He is of Italian descent through his father, and of Jewish and French descent from her mother’s side.

It inspired him to pursue a career in acting though he didn’t get any roles for a while leaving him nearly broke and homeless. This persuaded him to appear in his first feature, the notorious pornographic film “The Party at Kitty and Stud’s”, but which didn’t include pornographic scenes compared to today’s standards.

The Success of Sylvester Stallone

With his return to the US, Sylvester began taking more roles which would eventually lead him to envision film projects.He wrote and starred in the film “Rocky”, creating the role of the boxer Rocky Balboa which elevated him to stardom.

He would continue making films in the franchise and then created another one, playing John Rambo in the “Rambo” films. Both franchises have had numerous iterations during his career, continuing the story.

“Rocky” remains the most successful, as he transitioned the character from boxer to mentor in “Creed” and “Creed II”, taking care of the child of his late mentor. In 2010 he wrote and directed “The Expendables” films, which are noted for featuring various popular action stars from the 1980s to the 1990s. For his work, he’s won numerous awards including a Golden Globe, and been nominated three times for an Academy Award.

Personal Life

Sean Edward Hartman’s Wiki: Phil Hartman’s Son & Family

Published

on

Introduction

Sean Edward Harman is an actor and artist. He is also the son of the deceased Phil Hartman and Brynn Hartman, actually best known as a result of the tragic death of his parents, whereby his mother Brynn Hartman committed suicide shortly after murdering her husband. Sean was only nine at the time of this occurring, which therefore shaped his life.

Early Life

Sean Edward Hartman was born on the 17th June 1989 (age currently 31) in Sunset, Vancouver, British Colombia in Canada.

His zodiac sign is Gemini, and he now has joint American-Canadian nationality. He was raised in Los Angeles, California as it was close to the television production his father, Phil Hartman was working at and involved with.

Sean’s heritage from his father’s side is English, German and Irish. On his mother’s side it is more of a real mix – English, Scottish, French Canadian, Danish, Spanish, Portuguese, Brazilian and Mexican.

Phil Hartmann, Sean’s father, was a well known and loved Canadian screenwriter, graphic designer, actor and comedian, regularly appearing on the NBC comedy show “Saturday Night Live” (SNL), completing his eighth and final season on SNL in February 1998.

Advertisement

He was also a voiceover artist, best known for his work voicing many of “The Simpsons” characters, as well as being the voice for Scooby-Doo and Scrappy-Doo.

Phil was married three times, first to Gretchen Lewis from 1970-1972, then Lisa Strain from 1982-1985, and shortly afterwards met his future third wife and Sean’s mother Brynn, an aspiring model on a blind date; they married in 1987. Sean has one younger sibling, Birgen Anika who was born in February 1992.  Both of Sean’s parents suffered from alcohol and substance abuse issues, as the impact of fame apparently effected both parents negatively. As a result of this, the early years of Sean’s childhood were not the most peaceful or stable.

On the 28th May 1998, the infamous suicide murder event took place that changed Sean and his sister’s life forever. After attending a restaurant in Los Angeles, Brynn Hartman shot Phil Hartmann three times whilst he was sleeping in bed. After admitting to a friend what she had done, she locked herself in the bathroom and shot herself in the head. This murder-suicide left Sean and his sister Birgen orphans; Sean was nine at the time, and his younger sister Birgen, six. They were both in the house whilst this happened, which was therefore obviously a deeply traumatic event for them both. Afterwards they were taken to a park by a family friend, who could tell they were in shock. They apparently announced their sadness that their mother ‘wouldn’t be able to take her to do all the fun things she’d promised’.

Much of Hollywood mourned the loss of Phil. In an attempt to remove the children from a media circus, they were sent to live in the Midwest with a maternal aunt, Katherine Wright and her husband Mike; the couple didn’t have children of their own. They took custody of the children, and raised them outside of Los Angeles, apparently with the children using a different last name during their childhood in order to “shield them from the media and allow them to grow up in relative obscurity”. First they lived in Eau Claire, a community in northern Wisconsin, and later in Edina, Minnesota. Later on, the children went to live with a paternal relative, their uncle and Phil’s brother John.

Early education, career, hobbies/interests

Once in school, it became clear that Sean was an artistic character just like his father had been before him.

He attended Edina High faculty for high school. During his time here he took part in artistic endeavours such as creating and illustrating the poster for the short film ‘Kimura’s Vengeance’. Sean had a clear passion for music from a young age, and was a member of several bands, one such being ‘Metamorphic Mexico’, of which there are black and white photos available.

After high school he attended the Minneapolis College of Art and Design which he later graduated from, after which he interned at several artistic companies, pursuing his dream of staying within the artistic world.

Career

Sean is an actor, writer, a graphic art designer, a voice artist, artist and a comedian.

Advertisement

He has used his natural interest and passion with the arts to create a career that has expanded in different directions within the artistic realm. He has had various illustration and graphic design jobs, although none of them are well known to the public realm.

He is the keyboard player in the band ‘Moonstone Continuum’ which perform in the US. He is currently performing Stand Up Comedy with the Cleveland Comedy club as he can be seen promoting on his Instagram account. He is relatively active on Instagram, as @sean_hartman.

Sean currently resides in Oakland, California.

Partner

Sean is currently single, although he is very private about his personal life. He doesn’t comment on this, post about it, or make any public statements that could lead to further indications of his relationship status.

Other relationships

Sean is still close with his sister Birgen, after attending her marriage to Brandon in 2018. Birgen and Branden became engaged in 2015 and were married in 2018 in a beautiful ceremony in Italy. There are photos of this ceremony, which looked like a fairy tale occasion for Birgen. Sean remains a supportive and close brother to his sister and only sibling. Birgen continues to live outside of LA, stating that her love of nature compels her to lead a more rural lifestyle.

Birgen was featured in SNL’s 40th anniversary special show, reuniting with many of her father’s old friends; Sean wasn’t in attendance.

Unlike as children, today both proudly use their real last name ‘Hartman’.

Net Worth

Sean Edward Hartman’s current estimated net worth stands at $1 million. He and his sister were both left with an inheritance from their late parents, who had planned ahead in the event of their death, so left behind an estate of an estimated worth $1.23 million. This was to be awarded to the children in parts – 25% each after they attained a bachelor’s degree, and the other 25% each upon them turning 30.

Furthermore, sources suggest that Sean is currently making $150,000 to $200,000 yearly on an average salary through his various graphic design work and artistic endeavours.

Physical characteristics

Sean Edward Hartman is tall, with brown or black hair, and green eyes.
