Dame Dash has never been one to bite his tongue. The producer is now taking aim at Lifetime for allegedly attempting to exploit his past relationship with the late R&B songstress Aaliyah. 

On Friday (July 3rd), Dame took to Instagram to post a video calling out the president of unscripted television for eOne Entertainment, Tara Long for trying to exploit his “story with Aaliyah” for a Lifetime project. In the clip, Dame is heard saying that he quits before unleashing a rant on the production crew. “You think you’re going to f*ckin’ exploit me when it comes to Aaliyah?” Dash shouts. “I kept telling Tara to stop.”

He continues, “F*ck Lifetime, and f*ck eOne. I don’t need it. I got my own network…I’ll make my own documentary about Aaliyah.” 

While it was not exactly clear what went on during the filming, Dame does point out that racism might have played a big part.

“This is how I treat racist like Tara Long from @eone_tv when she was trying to exploit my story with Aaliyah for @lifetimetv,” he wrote in the caption. “My question is …why is it that the only way a black persons story can only be told on a network only if it goes through a white production company or it won’t get told…let’s get to that…but at the end of the day this is how I been treating racist…luck them out your house and do it yourself @damedashstudios #staytuned.”

Aaliyah and Dame began dating in 2000 and maintained a relationship up until her death on August 25th, 2001.
