Dre's apology comes as film 'Straight Outta Compton' has been deemed a cinematic success.

However, many critics have pointed out that it skirted around serious allegations that the rapper and businessman was violent towards a number of girlfriends, a journalist and a female rapper.

A number of these women have spoken out about Dre recently.

In the interview with the respected newspaper, he said: ""Twenty-five years ago I was a young man drinking too much and in over my head with no real structure in my life. However, none of this is an excuse for what I did."

He added: "I apologise to the women I’ve hurt. I deeply regret what I did and know that it has forever impacted all of our lives."
