Who is Michel’le’s daughter Bailei Knight?
Bailei Knight was born in the USA on 28 November 2002 – her zodiac sign is Sagittarius and she holds American nationality. She is perhaps best known for being the daughter of the famous American singer Michel’le and the entrepreneur Suge Knight.
Early life and education
Bailei was raised alongside her half-brother Marcel in the USA by her mother, as her father was in prison when she was born and wasn’t around much after he came out – Bailei’s parents married in 1999 and after Michel’le filed for divorce in 2005, she learned that her marriage wasn’t valid in the first place, because Suge was at the time married to Sharitha.
Michel’le also stated that Suge once hit her and dislocated her jaw. Marcel’s parents are Michel’le and the rapper Dr. Dre, and from Bailei’s father’s relationships, she has three half-brothers and a half-sister.
Bailei has been staying away from the spotlight, and has only appeared in the documentary movie about her mother’s life “Surviving Compton: Dre, Suge & Michel’le”. She is currently attending high school at which she is physically very active, as she is playing soccer for the school’s team and is a member of the school’s drama club – Bailei is planning to enroll at a college in 2021.
Friends, love life and relationships
Bailei has been keeping the details of her love life to herself, but there are rumors circulating the internet that she is currently in a relationship with her high school sweetheart. According to these rumors, the two met only days after she enrolled at her high school, and they stayed close friends for two years before the boy invited her out on a date in 2018 – this would mean that the two have been together for around two years now, but as Bailei hasn’t commented on the rumors, nothing can be said with certainty.
Bailei is not much of a social girl, and usually prefers to spend her free time at home watching movies and TV series, and playing video games. She has one best friend and the two have often be seen spending time together by Michel’le’s fans.

Bailei likes to listen to music – her favorite singer is her mother, and she nearly always goes to listen to her when she’s performing. She is a lover of animals and has a pet dog, after spending around two years begging her mother to allow her to have a pet.
Bailei has recently started going to the gym and has four training sessions each week – she is also following a strict diet which includes only fruits and vegetables, thus her fit body.

Who is Michel’le?
Michel’le Denise Toussant was born in Los Angeles, California USA on 5 December 1967 – her zodiac sign is Sagittarius and she holds American nationality.
She is an R&B singer, songwriter and rapper, who gained recognition with the many songs she released in the late ‘80s.
Michel’le made her debut performance in 1987, when she was invited to sing World Class Wreckin’ Cru’s song “Turn Off the Lights” after their singer Mona Lisa couldn’t make it to the studio on time. After hearing her sing, Michel’le was offered to a contract with Ruthless Records. Her debut album “Michel’le” came out in 1989 and was produced by her now ex-boyfriend Dr. Dre – its lead single, “No More Lies” reached #7 on the Billboard Hot 100, while two other singles “Something in My Heart” and “Nicety” also became hits.
In 1990, the single on which she collaborated with Ice-T, MC Hammer and JJ Fad, entitled “We’re All in the Same Gang” became a huge hit, and was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group.
Michel’le’s second album came out on 24 August 1998 entitled “Hung Jury”, but didn’t gain much attention. In 2011, she released the single “Freedom To Love” after around 13 years without new material, and in 2013, she released another single – “It Still Hurts”.
Michel’le gained a lot of attention after she went public about her relationship with Dr. Dre, stating how he beat her badly while they were together – Dr. Dre once broke her nose, cracked her rib, and gave her a black eye five times. One time, he tried to shoot her but luckily missed by a few inches – she broke up with him after she learned he was engaged to another woman.
In 2016, a movie was released depicting how abusive and violent Dr. Dre was while he dated Michel’le, while Suge and his violent side were also shown in the film. Before the movie was released, Dr. Dre called whoever he could to try to stop the film from being released – after it came out, he publicly apologized to all the women he had treated poorly.
