There seems to be a feud brewing within the Dash family, as Clueless star Stacey has threatened to sic her lawyers on cousin Dame after the Roc-A-Fella co-founder released images for a new film appearing to co-star the former Fox News talking head.
Dame shared a movie poster for his new film, Honor Up, to Instagram, featuring himself, Stacey and rapper Cam’ron on its cover.

When asked directly if she is a part of the film, the 50-year-old conservative responded, “No. I am not. I’ll let the lawyers handle it,” according to The Jasmine Brand.
Stacey starred in previous Roc-A-Fella indie flick Paper Soldiers alongside Kevin Hart (in his film debut), Beanie Sigel and JAY-Z, but those days are apparently long gone. In a 2014 interview with Net-A-Porter, the actress revealed that Dame and several other members of her family no longer speak to her due to her political beliefs.
“My family and I have not spoken,” Dash said. “My cousin Damon and my brother [Darien, CEO of DME Interactive Holdings] were role models to me because they were great capitalists. Now we’re not really talking because they were the ones who told me to keep my mouth shut. They felt that I should do certain things because I’m black. Certain friends don’t speak to me any more either.”
