Dame Dash & Lee Daniels Settle Multi-Million Dollar Lawsuit , Will Work Together Again

lddd1

Lee Daniels and Dame Dash has settled and squashed their beef, dismissing a multi-million dollar lawsuit filed by Dame after lending the director $2 million for a few projects. And now, the two are collaborating on a brand new project.

According to TheYBF.com

Hip Hop entrepreneur Damon Dash and Oscar nominated director Lee Daniels have settled their differences outside of court and are now working on a new project.

Here’s what went down…..

Back in August 2014, Dame filed a $25 million lawsuit against Lee due to a dispute over ownership rights for films such as Precious, The Butler, and the recently popular FOX series “Empire.”

The Hip Hop mogul claims he gave the famed director a loan for $2 million to help produce Lee’s 2004 project, The Woodsman. Dame claims in return for the $2 milli, he was suppose to get executive producer credits, 50% rights on the film, and a guarantee that the investment would be repaid with interest from Lee. Dame also claims he brought on artists such as Kanye West to perform at venues where the film’s ads would run to help with promo.

Rather than being repaid, Dame claims he was offered a new deal from Lee where he would roll over the debt to other projects he was working on, such as the 2005 flick Shadowboxer. Dame accepted his offer and demanded credits, ownership and compensation. He argued Lee’s most recent works also fell under their contractual agreement.

You’ll recall, Dame called Lee out during an interview with Power 105’s The Breakfast Club last month, explaining why he decided to file the $25 million lawsuit.

Yesterday, both parties filed papers dismissing the lawsuit. According to THR, Dame’s attorney Natraj Bhushan said it was a “creative, fair” settlement that “calls for them to work together in the not-so-distant future.” He then said he couldn’t offer any specific details given a confidentiality provision.

Now, the two have kissed and made up and are working on a brand new project. Dame took to his IG account today to make the announcement. He also revealed he can finally watch The Butler and “Empire” now since they have settled their differences.
