Director Lee Daniels convinced Rock-A-Fella mogul Damon Dash to pump cash into his movies, including “The Butler” … then stiffed him
Dash is suing Daniels for reneging on a deal for Dash to invest in Daniels’ projects — including “The Woodsman,” “Precious,” “The Paperboy” and ‘The Butler.”
Dash has said he dumped $2M into “The Woodsman” back in 2004 … and never got a penny back. Dash claims in his lawsuit he had a similar interest in Daniels’ other movies.
According to the legal docs — obtained by TMZ — Dash claims he was also screwed out of his executive producer and producer credits on the films.
Dash wants $25 million — minimum.
