Damon Dash Loses Custody Of Daughters To Ex-Wife Rachel Roy
It appears that the custodial saga between Damon Dash and his ex-wife Rachel Roy is over—at least for now it is.
According to TMZ, Roy was awarded sole legal and physical custody of their daughters Ava Dash, 15, and Tallulah Dash, 6. Both Roy and Dash were petitioning for full custody of the girls.
As previously reported, the designer and the former record label executive have accused one another of being bad parents who resort to insane measures to spite the other. As you may recall, Dash took to Instagram a few weeks ago Dash claiming that Roy has been intentionally trying to keep him away from his children.
If anybody speaks to Rachel_roy can you ask her why she is keeping my daughters away from me i know such a classy woman would never do something as distasteful as that unless advised by a low life scum bag lawyer like donell Suarez Rachel please don't get caught up in this dude trying to separate me from my family so he can get paid but if I have to this will be a public fight and I'm going to tell the truth and you guys will not be making me look like a bad father so yall can get more money…I'm sick of these games…Barry Rutcofsky is another scum bag lawyer I'm gonna make famous for fucking wit my family
Interestingly, it doesn’t appear that the 43-year-old has been trying his best to remain in his daughters’ lives because he failed to show up for court today, which probably didn’t help his argument. As a result of the new ruling, he is only allowed supervised visitation with his daughters. Roy was also granted a three-year restraining order against Dash.
So far, the former Roc-a-Fella CEO has not commented on the ruling, but our guess is that he will try to fight it in some way shape or form. It’s unclear why he was a no-show at court today, but if his Instagram page serves as any indication of his whereabouts, he selected today—of all days—to go on a road trip with his lady friend Raquel Horn. Perhaps he already knew that he would not be awarded custody and didn’t want to go through the formality of hearing it from the judge’s mouth. However, his actions still seem kind of careless.
