AHH Stray News: Scott Storch, 50, Em, Dizzee
Scott Storch was handed another financial defeat, when a Miami-Dade jury awarded a former business partner a $750,000 judgment against the hit producer. Storch was sued by Miami-Beach actor Matt Sinnreich, who paid Storch $25,000 to form a cooperation to produce Sindy Espitia and rapper Darrel D Shep Sheppard. According to the Miami Times, Storch never formed the cooperation and never returned the money. The producer was accused of breach of contract and civil theft. The judgment awarded was a default judgment, because Storch never replied to the complaint. Storchs $10 million dollar mansion is set to be sold off on June 26.
