Dame Dash is best known as one of the co-founders of Roc-A-Fella Records, alongside Jay-Z and Kareem Burke. Dame has a long history of legal troubles. With that being said, Dame found himself in hot water after he was accused of sexually assaulting photographer Monique Bunn back in 2019. But now the Roc-A-Fella co-founder has been cleared in the lawsuit but he must still pay the victim $30,000.
On Wednesday, according to Billboard, Dame Dash was found not guilty of the sexual assault charges after a four-day trial. He was found to be liable for defamation, though, and Bunn was awarded $30,000 in damages as a result.
Bunn filed a lawsuit against Dash after claiming that, while she was sleeping at his house for a video project, he touched her inappropriately. After the Hip Hop entrepreneur accused her of using his credit card without his permission to charge thousands of dollars, she later added defamation charges.
In her lawsuit, Monique Bunn demanded tens of millions of dollars and claimed Dash had not given her a good number of her photographs, however, she received no compensation for the lost items.
Bunn testified last week that Dame Dash inappropriately touched Bunn while they were filming a 2019 video at his house. She claimed that while sound asleep in his daughter’s room, she felt “something on the left side of my like lower back onto my butt, down my thigh.” Bunn further testified that Dash’s accusations that she had stolen money from him had ruined her professional life.
Dame Dash reportedly called the accusations “ridiculous,” denied any wrongdoing, and called Bunn a “con artist” for making false claims in his testimony. Stay tuned to Thirsty For News to get more updates.
