Lee Daniels Pays Sean Penn $10M
Lee Daniels has to put his money where his mouth is.
Daniels came to the defense of Empire’s leading man, Terrance Howard, by stating, ‘He ain’t done nothing different than Marlon Brando or Sean Penn, and all of a sudden he’s some f—in’ demon. That’s a sign of the time, of race, of where we are right now in America.’
Sean Penn slapped him with a defamation lawsuit shortly after.
Lee tried to get the case moved to federal court, but eventually backed out and decided to pay Sean Penn’s pricey lawyer fees.
Huge price to pay, but these celebrities don’t play when it comes to their reputation.
