Dame Dash is going to have to pay $800,000 to the director and producers of the “Dear Frank” movie.
According to docs obtained by TMZ, the jury sided with director Josh Webber and Muddy Water Pictures who made the feature film, “Dear Frank” — starring Brian White, Claudia Jordan, Nick Turturro, Lil Durk and Columbus Short.
The movie makers claimed Dash tried to promote and advertise the movie as his own after he’d been dropped.
DAME DASH’S NEW STUDIO
In 2019, Webber blasted Dame on social media:
“I wasn’t gonna speak on this bum but f*ck him and his lies. I won’t sit back and let this guy try to slander or bully me any longer. Truth is [Dame Dash] is not a true independent artist or business man like he tries to pretend to be.. He was HIRED by @muddfilms to ‘Direct’ the film #thelist originally as a pure marketing stunt. I was the producer of the film and asked to ensure that it actually got made by ghost directing certain aspects.”
He continued, “Dame has no idea what directing a movie actually is or takes and was constantly yelling at crew members/cast, berating people on set, smoking weed and basically sleeping at the wheel. Then while in the process of finishing the film, Dame was being a hot head with the studio executive producer/financier stepping out of line and finally got FIRED!! I was approached to finish the job by directing the movie to completion and attached my company to help in its formal release. Really simple to understand.”
