Hip-Hop Mogul Damon Dash & film/tv writer and director Lee Daniels are in war of bad blood over money issues. According to the Rocafella founder, Dash loaned Daniels $2M to start his dreams of becoming a director. Daniels promised to give the money back in months. After having success with films like Precious, The Butler, and the hit TV show Empire, Daniels has yet to pay back the $2M loaned. A few weeks ago Dash confronted Daniels at a Diana Ross concert. The video is on Dash’s IG account. View below what was posted. Now a lawsuit has been filed for $5M against Daniels in efforts to collect what was owed. From what I remember about Damon Dash when he was active in the music industry, he is a beast and fearless. He won’t rest until those payments of are paid in full.
