*Damon Dash is suing Lee Daniels, claiming the filmmaker reneged on a deal for the former Rock-A-Fella mogul to invest in his film projects – including “The Butler,” “The Paperboy” and “Precious.”

According to TMZ, Dash also dumped $2 million into Daniels’ film “The Woodsman” in 2004, only to get stiffed.

Dash also claims in his lawsuit that he was screwed out of his executive producer and producer credits on the films.

He’s seeking $25 million — minimum.
