Former NWA Manager Sues Makers Of 'Straight Outta Compton'

But former N.W.A manager Jerry Heller wasn't one of them. On Friday, he filed a $110 million defamation suit against NBCUniversal, Comptown Records, the film's director, and the estates of Ice Cube, Dr. Dre and Eazy-E, among others.
Heller says several parts of the film, like him withholding a $75,000 check from Ice Cube and being fired by Eazy-E, are untrue — to the point of hurting his reputation.
