Damon Dash uploaded a video of him rolling up on Lee Daniels and demanding the $2 million he loaned him to kickstart his career. According to Dame, Lee used the money to make Precious and then went ghost! By the way, Precious came out NINE YEARS AGO!
After posting the video, Dame decided to get the court involved in ANOTHER issue he has with his former friend. He filed a suit against Lee for not giving him a co-executive producing credit for a Richard Pryor biopic, and said he was scammed out of the 5% of backend profits that he was promised before Daniels ditched the project.
