Michel’Le Toussaint is an R&B singer who was born in Compton, CA in 1970. She has had a great deal of success as a solo artist and is most well-known for her top hits No More Lies and Something in My Heart. Her single No More Lies, which was released in 1989, topped out at number seven on the Billboard Hot 100.
While she once had a net worth that was well into the millions, she fell on hard times after breaking off relationships with Knight and Dr. Dre. Today, her net worth is reportedly around the $100,000-$200,000 mark, although she does receive child support from Knight for the time being. Toussaint no longer received support from Dr. Dre as their child has exceeded the 18-year-old threshold.
While Michel Le has had a successful career as a solo artist, she is perhaps most famous for her personal relationships with hip hop legends Suge Knight and Dr. Dre. She actually married Knight in 1999, although they broke off the marriage 8 years later.
Interestingly enough, both Knight and Dr. Dre have a child with Toussaint. Her son, Marcel, was born in 1991 while her and Dr. Dre were still dating. Her daughter, Balei, was born in 2002 while her and Knight were still married.
During her relationship with Dr. Dre, Toussaint released her first album, titled Michel’le. The album, which was produced by Dr. Dre himself, went to sell more 2.5 million copies throughout the world.
After being on hiatus from writing and singing for over 13 years after 1998, she came back to release her single Freedom to Love in 2011. That single reached as high as number 91 on US R&B charts. Today, she is one of the six members on the hit reality TV series R&B Divas: Los Angeles.
