Rap executive Damon “Dame” Dash isn’t dashing from law enforcement. Instead, the hip-hop mogul turned himself over to New York cops this week over a child support battle.
According to reports, the legal crunch relates to exes Rachel Roy and Cindy Morales.
Dame Dash has finally turned himself in to NYPD after a near three year warrant had been issued for his arrest. In relation to Rachel Roy he claims that the money will go into his share of their clothing company Topson Downs. Although Dash and Rachel Roy have lost their company his plans to get it back are in the works. (Power 105.1)
Prior to turning himself in, Dash addressed the legal nightmare and promised he’s in no way in the wrong.
“For some reason, when I was in L.A., I got all these warrants saying I didn’t pay child support,” he shared with the celebrity news site. He then goes on to explain how he recently gave Morales $150,000 so she could purchase a home, which adds to his confusion in the matter. “I just found out that I have to prove she got the money, so I’m like, ‘F–k it, I’m gonna turn myself in. … I’ll sit in jail for three or four days or whatever they want me to do. I’m an innocent man. There’s no reason for me not to turn myself in. I’m sick of my name being compromised.” (TMZ)
Reports claim the initial warrant came together roughly three years ago.
As previously reported, a court judge first signed a warrant regarding his alleged unpaid child support three years ago. Dame alleges he gives both women money on a regular basis. The former Roc-A-Fella executive remains confident the situation will work itself out. (REVOLT TV)
