Well-known hip hop photographer Monique Bunn has filed a $50 million federal lawsuit against Dame Dash, as well as his fiancee Raquel Horn and Dash’s entertainment companies for an alleged sexual assault that took place at his home.
Bunn claims the alleged incident happened back in April when Dame reportedly wanted Bunn to meet with him and shoot new programming for his companies, Blast reports. She was flown out to Los Angeles to meet with Dame and his fiancee and according to the suit, Bunn immediately started shooting the material for Dash’s companies.
As part of the arrangement, Bunn was staying with Dame and his family during her trip, according to the complaint. She was told she would be sleeping in Dame’s daughter’s room.
Bunn alleges that Dame Dash approached her while she was sleeping and placed his hand on her breasts and butt. The suit says, “Dash did not have the permission or consent to touch Bunn’s sexual organs. Dash was wearing a robe and had no underwear on. Dash had been drinking alcohol and smoking marijuana all day.”
She continued, “Upon waking up due to the unauthorized touching by Dash, Bunn was able to get Dash’s hands off her breasts and buttocks. Dash backed up and asked Bunn “what are you doing?” Bunn responded and said “I am sleeping” and “I will fight you” to Dash. Dash then left the room. Bunn was angry and frustrated by Dash’s offensive and unwanted touching. Bunn stayed at the Dash residence and did not sleep that evening.”
The next day, Bunn accuses Dame of telling her he had a deal with WE tv to shoot a docu-series based on Bunn.
“The reality of the situation is that Dash did not have a deal with WETV associated with Bunn and only wanted to keep Bunn silent about the events of April 18, 2019,” the lawsuit adds.
Bunn is also accusing Dame and Horn of refusing to return personal photography equipment and hard drives that reportedly had more than 20 years of hip-hop culture photography on them.
Bunn is suing for the return of her property and $50 million in damages. We’ll keep you posted on any updates.
