(AllHipHop News) A new front has opened up in Damon Dash’s legal war with a lawyer he maintains has targeted him for “extortion.”
Lawyer Christopher Brown just smacked Dame with a $7.4 million libel lawsuit due to his constant attacks on social media.
Christopher Brown is asking a court for millions over a series of remarks Damon posted in January of 2019, labeling Brown and his client Josh Webber of being “con” men.
Brown and filmmaker Josh Webber are furious at Damon for ruining their reputations by claiming they stole a movie called “Dear Frank/The List,” which stars Robin Givens, Romeo Miller, David Banner, Kandi Burress, Karrueche Tran, and others.
Damon’s battle with Christopher Brown became headline news after the Roc-A-Fella founder’s fiery statements during a deposition for a lawsuit over the movie.
To complicate the legal wrangling, Christopher Brown is representing two other clients who are also suing Damon Dash.
Brown is also representing a filmmaker suing Damon over the 2016 film “Mafietta: Rise Of A Female Boss,” in addition to a photographer named Monique Bunn.
As a result of Damon’s posts, the lawyer and his client have been subject to ridicule, in addition to losing work and receiving death threats.
Brown is asking a judge to make Damon Dash give him $6,840,000 in damages, in addition to another $565,000, or $1 for each one of the rap mogul’s followers.
