Dame Dash confronted Lee Daniels recently at a public event regarding 2 million dollars Lee owes him. Several years ago, Dame Dash lent Lee Daniels $2 million so that he could produce The Woodsman. Dame says he got a written agreement that gave him executive producer credits, 50 percent of rights on film and a guarantee that the loan would have been repaid with interest from Lee. However Lee never paid Damon back. Dame then filed a lawsuit winning the case in 2015 the judge order Lee to return moneys loaned from Dame Dash with interest, Dame’s attorney Natraj Bhushan, saying it was a “creative, fair” settlement that “calls for them to work together in the not-so-distant future.” Apparently that never happened and Dame wants his money back.
Dame took to Instagram to share a video of him confronting Lee at a public event.
He captioned the clip:
