According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Dame has officially dropped his $5 million lawsuit against the Empire director.

The pair has reportedly agreed to discontinue all claims with prejudice — which means the suit can’t be refiled in the future.

Back in June, Dame sued Lee for breach of contract. He claimed the pair had a 2015 agreement that made it clear he’d get a co-executive producing credit on a Richard Pryor biopic on which the two planned to work. The New York native invested $2 million in the project and was reportedly supposed to receive 5% of Lee’s profits.

Dame insisted he was intentionally left in the dark about the film and never received what he was promised. At the time, court papers also claimed that Lee attempted to alter the settlement agreement with “threats of criminal prosecution.”
