Damon Dash is reportedly willing to turn himself into the New York City authorities over unpaid child support, just to prove that he has nothing to hide.


The rapper reveals that he's planning to turn himself in to show proof that he has been paying for child support all along, and that his ex-girlfriends are lying about it.


Dash spoke out to TMZ saying he's surrendering to NYC authorities three years after a family court judge issued a warrant for his arrest. This warrant was reportedly served because he owed almost $400,000 dollars in support to Cindy Morales, the mother of his son, Lucky, and to Rachel Roy, his ex-wife and the mother of his daughters, Ava and Tallulah.


According to the rap mogul, the warrants should not have been given in the first place, as he has provided the two women with enough money to raise their children. In fact, he claims that he even gave Morales $150,000 to purchase a house, where she currently lives with their son. Aside from this, he even claimed that his ex-wife has been drawing payments directly from his share of her business, the Rachel Roy Collection, which they both supposedly co-own.

Frustrated with the arrest warrant that hinders him from traveling back to New York, he's decided to finally do something about it, as he's been missing way too many important events, including family funerals.


While he's willing to stay in jail until this whole allegation clears out, he denounces the fact that the two women are claiming he hasn't done his share in taking care of his three children, when he in fact has.

Aside from the child support claim, Roy is reportedly pushing him to give her majority ownership of their joint company, something that he just isn't having.


Dash's Money Troubles

In January, it was revealed that a part of Damon Dash's settlement with Lee Daniels was used to pay off a debt he's owed since 2011. This debt was owed to Kerison & Wiloughby Capital, reportedly amounting to $400,000 which he took from the money he earned from the $5 million lawsuit that he first tried to fight for in court.


The lawsuit was over a Richard Pryor biopic that Daniels and Dash planned in 2015. The producer invested $2 million on the project, while Daniels, who was supposed to direct the film, was expected to provide Dash co-executive producing credit and 5% of the profits. He eventually failed to provide his end of the bargain, and Dash sued him for $5 million.

In the end, the two men settled the case and Daniels paid Dash an undisclosed amount.

With so many run-ins with the law because of money, it's quite hard to keep track whether or not Dash actually gets to pay off his debts. Now that he's about to be arrested for another $400,000 case, this time for child custody, the court is waiting on his "proof" of payment to his ex-girlfriend and ex-wife.
