A warrant has been issued for Damon Dash’s arrest for failure to pay almost $350,000 in child support. This happened just one week after a judge awarded Rachel Roy, fashion designer and ex-wife to music mogul Dash, full and physical custody of their two daughters. The two divorced in 2009 and have participated in a long and arduous child custody battle, both claiming each other as unfit parents. In addition, Roy was awarded a three-year restraining order against her ex-husband for both her and the children. According to the order, Dash will be only be allowed to see his children in a supervised environment.
After failed attempts in trying to obtain a response to the ruling, sources report that neither Dash nor his representatives could be reached for comment, according to news outlet E!Online. Court documents also revealed that Dash was not present for the hearing. This is a civil case which means that only in New York where the court proceedings took place can Dash be arrested and be put into prison if he fails to comply with the child support order. Should he not comply with the order, Dash could be sentenced to six months in jail.
