It appears like Dame Dash will have to pay $805,000 to settle the copyright infringement and slander action over the film “Dear Frank.”
The co-founder of Roc-A-Fella Records was defeated in court today by director Josh Webber and Muddy Water Pictures, who produced the film “Dear Frank.”
Dame was sued by the filmmakers when they claimed he sought to sell and promote the film as his own to networks such as BET after he was ousted from the project.
They also allege that Dame sent out promotional material for the film but altered the title to “The List” before sending it out.
“You have to lose some battles to win a war… keep tuned,” Dame commented on Instagram.
Never claim to have directed “my film.” He kept going.
According to TMZ, Dame was set to direct the film in 2016.Josh and Muddy Waters, on the other hand, terminated relations with him in 2018, claiming he wasn’t up to the job since he was frequently intoxicated on set while filming at his Sherman Oaks home.
They made the movie at his house and used his equipment, says Dame, before taking the video and working on it without him.
