Dame Dash Reportedly Argues His $56,000 Income Is Too Low To Cover Child Support

The legal dispute with Rachel Roy continues...

(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."

If you wonder why Damon Dash has soooo much negativity in his heart for Jay, Kanye & now Biggs this story is why. People always blame Jay for Dame's downfall but I don't know how many times I have to point out that when they "broke up" Dame talked about how he was done with the music business, he'd conquered it already & that he was about to take over Hollywood. Fast forward 3 - 5 years later when all of his newer business ventures didn't really take off, that's when he came back calling all the non black's in Hip Hop "Culture Vultures", because the same people he was making millions with before he "left" were still there making the same money if not more when his other plans didn't work out. Dame knows if we has or had been still down/close or working with either Jay or Kanye some of the money over $230 million they made in 1 year would've gone to him.

56,000 is too low to pay child support? What about all the men who work for much less who pay child support Damon? Quit whining & comparing what Ms. Rachel earns, when you was earning & bragging I guess you didn't see this nor prepare for this? So, to summarize, either get an additional job, a better job or liquidate your assets to pay your child support BALLER! I've been here, so I'm not just talking ish, it ain't about you bro. Go thru the legal process to get your child support reduction, which is a review depending on the state and if you're attempting to go before your review is due, get an attorney & cash. Have a nice day!
