Damon Dash: 'I'm Going to Fight for the Right to Be a Dad'

The mogul slammed his ex-wife on social media.

Published May 1, 2015

After a judge took away custody of his kids and ordered him to pay $324,000 to his ex Rachel Roy, Damon Dash is fighting his case in the court of public opinion. The former Roc-a-Fella vented on Instagram, slamming both of his ex-wives for extortion.

"What kind of woman would take there [sic] children out of a loving protective environment for money?" Dash asked on social media. "There is a warrant for my arrest because I want to raise my children...how could me in jail be good for my children?" He continued, "Wait til yall here [sic] the whole story...I am going to fight for the right to be a dad."


Dash went on to point out that the same attorney, Donnell Suarez, represents both his exes and though he lost the custody battle with his first wife, Cindy, "on paper," he fought for the right to be a part of their son's life and succeeded.

Well, it looks like Dash wants to be in his kids lives everywhere but Instagram. He blocked his daughter Ava, 15, from his account after she called him out for airing the family's dirty laundry. Shortly after Dash posted critical comments about Roy last week, Ava responded with two short comments of her own in response: “are you serious dad?” and “please stop.”

Dash divorced his most recent ex Rachel Roy in 2009 and the former couple are fighting it out over custody of their daughters, Ava and Tallulah, 8, as well as their joint business interests. So far, Roy seems to be winning the battle, receiving full custody of the girls and a lump sum payment from Dash. 

But Dame refuses to go down without a fight. The hip hop mogul has sued Roy for concealing profits from companies they own together.
