Recently, Dame Dash publicized his rift with Lee Daniels over the repayment of $2 million. Dame announced that he has yet to receive his funds from the Empire creator.
Now, Daniels is sharing his side of the story to notify Dash that his money is on the way. In an interview with TMZ, Daniels expressed that Dash’s approach at a Diana Ross concert earlier this month was uncomfortable, but it made him realize he had to pay him.
“When nobody in Hollywood was giving me money, after my Academy award, unprecedented with Halle Berry, nobody was giving me money,” he said. “Damon’s crazy a** was crazy enough to give me money for The Woodsman and for Shadowboxer. The investment for Shadowboxer didn’t pay off.”
He continued by saying that he is able to pay him now.
“I am in the position now to get it to him, so I’m going to get it to him because I think that’s the right thing to do,” he said. “It sadly took that wake-up call during Diana’s “Reach Out And Touch Somebody’s Hand” for me to realize that and for me to sit with myself.”
Dame responded to Daniel’s apology and said, “We’re good bro…appreciate the honesty…time to move forward let’s forget the bubble gum sh*t and get the money.”
