“Empire” co-creator Lee Daniels has reached an agreement with Roc-A-Fella Records co-founder Damon Dash and Dash’s two baby mamas on how to divvy up $210,000 in upcoming payments he owes the music producer from an old settlement agreement.
Daniels filed the suit in April after Dash’s ex-wife, Rachel Roy, and baby mama Cindy Morales both demanded Daniels pay them instead of the upcoming settlement payments he owed Dash since Dash was allegedly behind on hundreds of thousands in child support.
The women wanted a piece of the settlement money that Daniels had been paying back incrementally to Dash over a secretly resolved dispute in which Dash’s claimed Daniels cut him out of $2 million in producers credits and profits. “The Butler” director asked a judge to intervene and tell him who to pay.
The parties agreed to a plan for how Daniels will divide the upcoming two payments for June 21 and July 9, according to new papers filed in Manhattan Supreme Court.
