Film Fridays – Stacey Dash accuses Dame Dash and Kanye West of illegally using her likeness to promote film, ‘Honor Up’

Just one day after Dame Dash’s long-delayed movie Honor Up was announced on Instagram, Stacey Dash—who appears prominently on the movie’s poster and is listed as having a starring role in the film—is already distancing herself from it. The movie, which is executive produced by Kanye West, is supposedly dropping on Valentine’s Day, but it was likely shot awhile ago. Even so, Dash claims she has no contract with either her cousin Dame or Kanye, and she also claims she has not authorized her name or likeness to be used in the movie.

I’m sorry that my cousin Damon Dash is using our family relationship to advertise his movie. I have no written contract with him or Kanye West’s company (who I have had no dealings with at all). No one is authorized to use my name or photograph for “Honor Up.”

BET is also reporting Stacey is so upset about being featured in a “‘Black’ film” that she actually “filed a lawsuit to remove all evidence of the film.”
