Scott Storch seems to be hopping back into the struggle mobile after news that his business partners who were funding his comeback to music production caught wind of some potential foolishness. Storch, who might be back on drugs, is being sued by his two partners after he declared bankruptcy to offset millions in debt.
The Hollywood Reporter writes:
Brad Cohen and Seth Cohen, who are wealthy through insurance and real estate holdings, say that upon the June bankruptcy, they saw that Storch “was once again ready to prove himself as a worthy record producer and use his deep connections in the music industry to make money for the three of them” so they allegedly entered into a deal with him and put up more than $1 million to fund his comeback.
Plus, states the lawsuit, Storch was provided with a weekly salary, a Rolls-Royce Ghost and a rental house in Parkland, Florida.
The lawsuit claims that Storch is backing away from the relationship and that the music producer “is back to his old ways and is not someone to trust with any monies.”
“In fact, B. Cohen and S. Cohen had an agreement with Storch that B. Cohen and S. Cohen would take the Rolls-Royce Ghost away from Storch if he failed a drug test or it was otherwise discovered by B. Cohen and/or S. Cohen that Storch was using drugs,” states the complaint. “In mid-December 2015, B. Cohen and S. Cohen discovered that Storch was again using drugs and demanded return of the vehicle. The vehicle is in S. Cohen name and S. Cohen did not want it to become an insurance liability. Upon information and belief, the demand that Storch return the vehicle partially led to B. Cohen and S. Cohen falling out of grace with Storch.”
Storch’s legal team hit back by sending the Cohens a letter that challenged the agreement between the three by citing that the terms were vague and other related reasons. The Cohens are stating that Storch is violating their agreement by not performing production services and are demanding he surrenders his intellectual property. Adding to all of this is a woman also named in the lawsuit who allegedly placed a wedge between Storch and the Cohens.
Hopefully, Storch can get back to his hitmaking ways soon and put this all behind him.
