(AllHipHop News) While Kanye West's pretax earnings totaled $150 million and Jay-Z brought in $81 million over a 12-month period, fellow Roc-A-Fella Records alum Damon "Dame" Dash does not seem to be doing as well financially right now.
TMZ reports Dash filed legal documents in order to modify his child support obligations to ex-wife Rachel Roy. According to the website, the businessman's adjusted gross income in 2018 was only around $56,000 while Roy earned roughly $500,000.
It appears Dash originally agreed to pay $6,000 a month in child support for 19-year-old Ava and 11-year-old Tallulah. Reportedly, the 48-year-old New York City native is requesting to stop payments for Ava since she is now older than 18.
Damon Dash and Rachel Roy have been battling over child support issues dating back to at least 2015. Earlier this year, Dame turned himself in to the New York authorities for supposedly being behind about $400,000 in child support which also includes alleged late payments to Cindy Morales, the mother of his son Lucky.
"The way I have things set up is that when the money would go into the Rachel Roy company, Rachel would cut the checks. We all moved to L.A. and all of a sudden I got warrants so I wasn't there to answer," said Dash in March. "I didn't realize no one had been paying the child support."
He continued, "When I finally realized what happened I was like, 'Yo, I don't have nothing to do with that.' She cuts her own checks, and I had just given my son's mother $150,000 to buy a house. So how am I having warrants? I just gave one $150,000 and I just gave the other $50,000 and she's in control of her own checks."
