WATCH: Dame Dash Confronts Lee Daniels for Not Repaying $2 Million Loan

Dame Dash wants Lee Daniels to run him his money … NOW!

Years ago, Damon Dash lent Lee Daniels $2 million to produce the 2004 movie “The Woodsman.” In return for the money, Dame says he received a written agreement from Daniels that promised him executive producer credits, 50 percents of the film’s rights, and a guarantee that the $2M investment would be repaid in full with interest. Apparently, that never happened and Dame filed a lawsuit in 2014.

In 2015, Dash and Daniels settled the suit, with Dame’s attorney Natraj Bhushan calling it a “creative, fair” settlement that “calls for them to work together in the not-so-distant future.” It looks like that never happened, and Dame wants his money back not now, but RIGHT NOW.

Earlier today, the Roc-A-Fella Records co-founder shared a video on Instagram showing him confronting Daniels in what appears to be a church service, telling him that he needs his money and he’s willing to file another lawsuit to get it if need be. He captioned the clip:

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 sh*t 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 sh*t 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..

It’s clear from this video that Dame is NOT playing about his coins, and could you honestly blame him? $2 million (that’s MILLION, with an M) is no small amount. And if someone who clearly has the money (Daniels’ net worth is significantly higher than $2 million, especially when you consider he’s the creator of hit shows like “Empire” and “Star”) is holding out, then you have to do what you have to do, even if that means taking them to court.

According to Deadline, Dame Dash has filed another lawsuit—this time for $5 million—claiming Lee Daniels promised to try to get him an executive producer credit for a Richard Pryor biopic, along with 5 percent of Daniels’ backend profits and didn’t hold up to his end of the agreement.

XXXTentacion Will Have an Open Casket Public Funeral at the BB&T Center in Sunrise, Florida; No Cameras or Cell Phones Are Allowed

A public memorial service for XXXTentacion is scheduled for Wednesday, June 27th, 2018, and, in addition to relatives and close friends, friends are invited to attend the funeral. To accommodate the expected huge turnout, XXX’s funeral will be held at the BB&T center—a 20,000-seat arena in Sunrise, Florida.

According to the late rapper’s attorney, J. David Bogenschutz, the service will include an open-asking viewing. However, cell phones and cameras will be prohibited at the event, according to a flyer announcing the memorial on his Instagram page. Admission is free.

“Come say your final goodbye on Wednesday, June 27th, 2018 at Florida Panther’s Stadium from 12pm to 6pm,” reads the flyer. “No cellular devices or cameras will be allowed. Please leave them at home or in your vehicle. Any person found with any device of the sort will be immediately turned around at [the] gate or escorted out and will not be allowed back on the premises.”

The no cell phone policy is likely a reaction to the videos floating around the internet showing XXXTentacion lifeless with no pulse right after he was shot in his vehicle.

20-year-old XXXTentacion, whose real name was Jahseh Dwayne Ricardo Onfroy, was gunned down last Monday afternoon (Jun. 18) while leaving a motorcycle dealership in Deerfield Beach, Florida. According to eyewitnesses, he was shot in the neck and died instantly at the scene. The incident report states there was a brief struggle between XXX and his shooter before he was killed.

One of XXX’s suspected killers—22-year-old Dedrick D. Williams, who reportedly stalked the rapper and waited for him to leave before robbing and shooting him— was arrested two days later and was charged with first-degree murder. He’s being held at the Broward County jail with no bond. His accomplices, two other men, have warrants out for their arrest and are still at large.

XXX’s death has resulted in increasing streaming numbers for the late artist. The day after his death, his song “SAD!”—a single from his latest album ?—broke the Spotify record for most single-day global streams, which was previously held by Taylor Swift. Today, Billboard reported that the song had skyrocketed from No. 52 to No. 1 on the Hot 100 chart.

X’s mother, Cleopatra Bernard, announced last week that he was expecting a child with his girlfriend. The baby is due before the end of the year.

XXXTentacion also reportedly took good care of his family just months before he was murdered. According to TMZ, he spent close to $2 million buying four houses for several close family members

XXXTentacion Bought Homes for Several Family Members Before He Died

XXXTentacion must have known his time on this earth was going to be cut short, because he made a huge purchase for multiple family members just two months before he died.

According to TMZ, the rapper purchased homes for not just one, not two, or even three, but FOUR different family members between the months of April and June. The gossip site obtained real estate records confirming the purchase of four homes in South Florida, totaling nearly $2 million.

Sources close to the rapper said that one of his most important objectives in life was to take care of those close to him, and that’s exactly what he did. It isn’t clear who exactly the recipients of the homes were, but they’re rumored to be for his parents, siblings, aunts, uncles, grandmothers, and great-grandmothers.

Here’s the breakdown of the home purchases (via TMZ):

  • $420K for a 3 bed, 2 bath 2,000 square foot home
  • $467K for a 4 bed, 2 bath 2,300 square foot home
  • $385K for a 4 bed, 2 bath 2,100 square foot home
  • $500K for a 4 bed, 3 bath 2,700 square foot home
    Grand Total: $1.7 million

20-year-old XXXTentacion was murdered last Monday (Jun. 18) while leaving a motorcycle dealership in Deerfield Beach, Florida.

According to the incident report, the rapper’s killers were inside the shop with XXX earlier that day scoping him out and waited outside for him to leave before robbing and killing him. One suspect, Dedrick Williams, has been arrested, and the other two are still on the loose.

A video surfaced over the weekend allegedly showing one of his killers bragging about the incident and saying XXX begged for his life in his final moments.

As we previously reported, the 20-year-old had a baby on the way with his girlfriend at the time of his death, according to a sonogram posted on Instagram by his mother.

Stevie J Kicked Out of “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” Reunion for Trying to Fight Erica Mena (Report)

Stevie J may have let his anger get the best to him during a recent taping of “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta.”

The LHHATL Season 7 reunion was filmed in Atlanta at Tyler Perry Studios earlier this month and multiple sources have confirmed that Stevie J and Erica Mena had a pretty explosive argument that turned physical and eventually ended with Stevie being escorted from the building and not able to tape the rest of the show.

Erica and Stevie have been beefing back and forth the entire season because Erica feels as though Stevie has been brainwashing and taking advantage of her former BFF Estelita, who is Stevie’s new artist on his label. Before the beef, Stevie thought he and Erica were once “cool” with each other, and now things have gone completely left between the two.

According to a number of Twitter sources, Erica got Stevie J’s blood boiling super high with a “low blow” comment that led to him allegedly resorting to calling her son a homophobic slur (yes, the one you’re thinking of—the “f” word) and not only that, but he also allegedly tried to physically assault her before security intervened.

Erica basically confirmed something went down between them during a brief chat on her Instagram Live. “[Stevie] likes to fight females. So if you blogs wanna blog about anything, blog about the fact that Stevie J is a B**CH, and he likes to fight girls.”

There are rumors floating around that Stevie J has been fired from the show, or at the very least, suspended from filming, but none of that has been confirmed by production. We’re also not sure how much of the “fight” we’ll be able to see when the reunion airs next month due to VH1’s extremely low tolerance for violence, especially when it involves opposite genders.

Meanwhile, Stevie’s ex and baby mama, former LHHATL star Joseline Hernandez, is out here screaming I TOLD YOU SO!

The Love & Hip Hop Atlanta Season 7 finale airs next Monday (Jul. 2), with the two-part reunion following right behind on Monday, July 9th and July 16th.

Meek Mill Debuts New Single “Stay Woke” Feat. Miguel While Wearing XXXTentacion Shirt at the 2018 BET Awards (VIDEO)

In arguably one of the best BET Awards performances of the night, Meek Mill graced the stage after being introduced by Philly natives Kevin Hart and Lil Uzi Vert and debuted a new song called “Stay Woke.”

Wearing a shirt with a picture of slain rapper XXXTentacion on it, who was shot and killed last Monday, Meek opened his performance up with scenery depicting a normal day in the hood, with kids playing football, a little girl using chalk to draw on the sidewalk, and various goons hanging out on the side of the road.

In the middle of the performance, Miguel joined Meek on the stage and the two performed together before a scene showed the police attacking a group of men in the hood, eventually leading to an innocent little girl being accidentally shot.

As the little girl lays there dead, her mom cries loudly and holds her in her arms while Meek and Miguel continue to rap and sing their parts of the song.

The performance was a chilling depiction of how African Americans are treated in America every day.
