[VIDEO] Dame Dash CONFRONTS Lee Daniels Over $2 MILLION DOLLAR LOAN, Dame SUES Lee For “No Less Than $5 MILLION” For Credits To RICHARD PRYOR BIOPIC

“You gone pay what you owe” – Riley Freeman.

Dame Dash confronted Lee Daniels at an event over a $2 million dollar loan Dame gave Lee to fund his dream of becoming a filmmaker.

Dame says after he gave Lee the loan, Lee created the film Precious, which grossed over $47 million. When it came time to pay back the loan, Lee went ghost, says Dame. Dame isn’t the only celeb to get low pay or no pay after Precious. Lee’s former friend Mo’Nique was blackballed after reportedly revealing she wasn’t sufficiently paid for her role and asked to do international press and promo for free. Mo’Nique reportedly stated she accepted the low wage as a favor for her then-aspiring director friend Lee but asked to be paid to fly overseas to do press and promo.

That request was denied. Mo didn’t go, and was subsequently kicked out of Hollywood.

Lee went on to create The Butler, and TV shows Empire and Star… and Dame still hasn’t gotten paid. He confronted Lee at an event, and the confrontation was captured on camera.
