Damon Dash Enters Custody Battle Over Teenage Son


Dash is slated to appear in court Sept. 28 in a custody battle between former

girlfriend Linda Williams over their son, Damon Dash Jr., now 14. Dash, 35, and

Williams became a couple in 1991, and never married. They

allegedly split in the mid 90’s, and their son remained in New Jersey under

William’s custody. In 2002, the CEO gained custody of his son, alleging that

his son no longer wanted to live with Williams. Williams

alleged that Dash’s influence on the boy was causing him to feel that way,

thus causing Williams to file the custody suit. Dash will appear in court over

an injunction filed by Williams requesting visitation rights. Independent

of Williams, her father allegedly petitioned for visitation rights to see his

grandson more often.In late 2004, Dash sold his interest in Roc-a-Fella Records

to parent company Island Def Jam Records for $10 million, along with the sale

of his share in Rocawear Clothing for $30 million to former business partner Jay-Z.Dash

also runs Damon Dash Music Group. His other businesses include a new clothing

line called CEO, Armadale Vodka, Dash Management, PRO-KEDS, Team Roc, Tiret Watches,

the Rachel Roy Clothing Line, and Dash/DiBella Boxing.
