Damon Dash’s ongoing child support and custody drama may lead to his arrest if he doesn’t pay up. A New York judge issued a warrant for the Harlem native’s arrest unless he pays up $342,000 to his ex-wife.
In a contempt hearing Wednesday in Manhattan Supreme Court, Judge Matthew Cooper ordered that Dash either pay $341,999.16 to Roy, or be arrested. Roy’s attorney, Donnell Suares, said Dash owes $91,249 in back child support, school and camp fees, and another $250,750 in debts Roy said she had to pay when Dash broke their divorce agreement by not paying the mortgages their New York homes.
“He failed on his default,” the judge said. “He has failed to appear.”
“I will issue a warrant,” Judge Cooper continued, “unless he can avoid arrest by purging contempt, and the purge is $341,999.”
Judge Cooper also ordered Dash to pony up $25,000 of Roy’s $40,000 legal fees.
Recently, Dash sued Roy for $2.5M over issues with their former fashion business.
This is getting pettier with every visit to a court room.
