Dame Dash has been one of the most influential people in the music industry for years, however, it seems like recently he’s been in the news for legal issues. At the beginning of this month, Dash turned himself in for child support warrants and accused Topson Downs of stealing $6 million from him. Now he finds himself once again in the news for a statement he said on social media.
According to The Blast, the CEO is facing a $7 million lawsuit for defamation against filmmaker, Josh Webber. Webber says that he lost a $6 million investment after Dash made some controversial comments, which caused his partner to retract from the deal.
However, this isn’t the first time Webber and Dash have had an issue. Webber and Muddy Water Pictures sued the Roc-a-Fella originator for claiming to be responsible for Dear Frank, a film he was fired from after allegedly being high on set. Dash has fired back at Webber, calling him a ‘culture vulture.’
According to the lawsuit, Webber is asking for $6.84 million for himself and an extra $565K for his company. Dash has yet to comment on the situation.
