I’m no coin counter but something tells me Dame Dash probably isn’t doing that “wear once and throw away” thing he did at the height of Roc-A-Fella’s glory days.
The man currently entangled in God knows how many lawsuits has filed his own lawsuit against director Lee Daniels. Dame wants a return on his numerous investments into the director’s films, including Precious.
Director Lee Daniels is facing a $25 million lawsuit over claims he failed to pay back hip-hop mogul-turned-fashion entrepreneur Damon Dash, or give him production credits, after Dash invested millions of dollars in his projects.
Attorneys for Dash, the former manager and business partner of rapper Jay-Z, on Thursday filed a summons, which is a notice that a suit has been filed, in New York state court in Manhattan.
Dash claims he helped fund the production of several films and television projects, including “The Butler,” “Precious” and “The Paperboy.”
Daniels “attempt(ed) to deprive (Dash) of the monetary benefits and producer and executive producer credits owed to Mr. Dash as per the parties’ agreements,” the summons said.
Dash is seeking $25 million in damages from Daniels and $1 million from producer Simone Sheffield, who is credited as a co-producer in several of Daniels’s films, according to the Internet Movie Database.
Daniels’ people say the mogul’s lawsuit is “completely without merit.” Dame says $2 million dollars is $2 million dollars.
I tried everything to get this dude to do the right thing but 2 million dollars is 2 million dollars… I need that back… I guess we will just have to let a judge decide… It is what it is and this isn’t any gangster shit so it would be ignorant to deal with this any other way…pause on the headline
I don’t know how the courts work because I didn’t go to court school, but it seems like something like this could easily be proven with a copy or receipt or something. I don’t know. Like I said, I didn’t go to court school.
