(Radio.com) "Any man that puts his hands on a female is a **** idiot," Dre said in Monday night's (July 10) episode of The Defiant Ones. The rapper was referring to his 1991 assault on reporter Dee Barnes.

According to police records and personal accounts, Dre ran into Fox TV's Pump It Up! host Barnes at a record-release party in Los Angeles. Barnes statement reveals the rapper picked her up and "began slamming her face and the right side of her body repeatedly against a wall near the stairway" and later beat her as she tried to escape.

"I have this dark cloud that follows me," Dre remarked, "it's attached to me forever. It's a major blemish on who I am as a man." While his career remained unaltered, his reputation took a serious hit. At the time of the assault, Dre did not apologize for the incident. Read more here.
