Music mogul Dame Dash was hit with a lawsuit earlier this year after publicly claiming he was part of a film after he was dropped from the project. Although he did contribute work on the movie, a judge ordered an injunction against Dash stopping him from publicly promoting the project any further.
According to documents obtained by The Blast, he used his “resume” as an argument stating that he was a key factor in the success of Kanye West and Kevin Hart. He mentioned his co-founder title for Roc-A-Fella Records with Jay-Z and Kareem Burke. He also mentioned that he was instrumental in Kanye West’s success, stating he found, signed and launched his career. Dash said he also put Kevin Hart in one of the comedian’s first movies.
Josh Webber and Muddy Water Pictures sued Dash for claiming he was still a part of the movie “Dear Frank” after he was dismissed from the project. Dash’s removal was allegedly due to being high on set.
Webber also claims that Dame Dash sent out promo material for a film called “The List,” which was the original title of the film, to BET and made it seem like he was apart of it. Webber sued for defamation and copyright infringement, seeking unspecified damages plus an injunction against Dash.
