Hey My Loves: Please Stand With Dame Dash As He Presses Lee Daniels Over a $2 Million Debt

Dame is like, "Event where? I needs my bread!"

Dame Dash is apparently wondering who Lee Daniels thinks he’s fronting for, ’causing him to channel his inner Rihanna like “brapp, brapp, brapp.”

So, apparently back in the day, Dame Dash made the unknowing mistake of giving Lee Daniels a financial boost to get his career poppin’. It was a good deed that has resulted in, according to Dame, an unpaid debt of $2M. On Tuesday (6/26), the mogul shared the backstory of his business arrangement with Daniels in an Instagram post that was accompanied by video footage of a recent encounter between the two. Dame pressed Daniels for “ghosting” when payment was due years ago. Lee- who directed Precious and The Butler and created the network television hit Empire among other things- was rather calm throughout the clip on Instagram:

I straight up loaned this dude Lee Daniels @theoriginalbigdaddy 2 million to pay for his dream of being a director…it was the money I was using to fund my movies and stay Indy…he promised I get my money back in months…then he makes precious and goes missing so he doesn’t have to pay me…then then Butler…empire…same shit Why does this dude feel like he doesn’t have to pay me?…why do I have to look crazy to get my money back…or go to court…ask @theoriginalbigdaddy why he doesn’t feel like he has to pay me even though he has it…what type of shit is this.. #paywhatyouowe I’m going to put this whole thing on my ig tv in a few… true definition of a culture vulture @culturevultures_book …eats off the culture but Robs the culture at the same time… see you back in court Lee your gonna pay me what you owe…please everyone ask him way he doesn’t think he has to pay me… @tmz_tv @vanlathan @theshaderoom @deadline @worldstar @voguemagazine @people @pagesix @oprah @halleberry

He tagged everyone and their momma while unapologetically captioning:

The subtitles show the tension-filled conversation between the two men going as follows:

Lee: Damon, I will call you.
Damon: No, no no, I need to know…what are we doin’ about this? ’Cause we about to issue another lawsuit and I’m going public about it. As a Black man, I gave you money that you needed, so how you not gonna give me my money? How? 2 million dollars bro? That’s like working capital, you told me you was gonna give me my money in a month!
L: Damon..
D: You wrong man!
L: I know I’m wrong.
D: You wrong! You didn’t invite me to Precious or any of that s–t. Tell these people how you wronged me! You don’t call me.
L: Damon, let me give you my phone number and we’ll have a discussion, alright? Damon, I’m gonna give you your money.
D: You never had to struggle and you made money on the foreign.

Dame’s Mood was clearly:

Yikes. Talk about anytime, anyplace. Lee clearly accepts responsibility for the debt. Hopefully they can settle up soon so another function can go undisturbed.
