Producers of the film allegedly grew tired of the 46-year-old actress’ bad attitude and decided to fire her from her role after she “disrespected” cast and crew members.
Dash was filming alongside Danny Glover and Evan Ross in the drama based on the true story of a paroled white supremacist who kills a cop and takes and African-American family hostage. Lela Rochon is reportedly replacing Dash in the movie.
Just last year there were several reports that Dash was fired from VH1’s scripted television series, Single Ladies, because of her diva-like temperament.
Despite the highly-rated first season, there was speculation and rumor that Dash would not be returning to the hit series. Following the season 1 finale of Single Ladies, In Touch Weekly reported that Stacey Dash was fired. The outlet cited unnamed sources that said Dash “feuded with the cast, canceled promos and caused entirely too much drama.”
Months later, Dash announced that she would not be returning to the hit series, but had no hard feelings. “I wish VH1 the best of luck with the show in maintaining the strong fan base we developed in Season 1.”
As for her reason for leaving Single Ladies, Dash gave the excuse that she needed to focus on parenting. “I have to be back in L.A. with my children right now, and the Single Ladies shooting location [in Atlanta] makes this impossible.”
Based upon the latest story of Dash having problems playing nice on the set of Supremacy, the rumors that she was fired from Single Ladies might actually be true.
The Bronx born actress’s big breakout role was opposite Alicia Silverstone as Dionne in the 1995 cult classic, Clueless. However, since then she has yet to star in another successful mainstream movie, and aside from Single Ladies, Dash’s career has largely faltered since.
