Damon Dash Presses Lee Daniels In Public For The $25 Million He Owes Him
For several years now, Damon Dash has been trying to collect the money he says he is owed by Lee Daniels. According to Dash, he funded several of Daniels’ projects but never got repayment or the percentage of profits he was promised. Dame took matters to court and filed a $25 million lawsuit which not only included the money he should have received from Daniels but damages as well.
In 2014, Daniels followed up with court docs of his own, citing that not only did Dash breach contracts but that his suit is so vague that he has no idea what agreements Dash is even speaking about. Daniels threatened to go after Dash for sanctions for filing a frivolous lawsuit against him if he filed an updated ill-found complaint.
It appears that after a few years, Dash grew tired of the back and forth. He decided to pull up on Daniels at what appears to be a concert and ask for his money face to face. Dash posted the confrontation on Instagram.
