Damon Dash - Damon Dash Ordered To Pay Up In Loan Feud

Embattled hip-hop mogul Damon Dash has been ordered to pay $330,000 (£212,904) to a former business partner who accused him of reneging on a 2006 loan.

Tom Nastos, who ran an apparel company which distributed the Rocawear clothing line the star launched with his former pal Jay Z, claims he fronted Dash $240,000 (£154,839) seven years ago on the promise that he would pay it back.

When he failed to do so in a timely manner, Nastos filed suit in New York and demanded his money back.

The music executive didn't respond to the accusations so Nastos was awarded a default judgement - only for Dash to later challenge the claim, insisting he wasn't properly served the legal papers.

However, a Manhattan Supreme Court judge ruled against Dash on Thursday (09May13) and told him to hand back the funds plus an additional $90,000 (£58,065) in interest, reports the New York Post.

The ruling is the latest blow to Dash's finances - his money woes first hit the headlines in 2009, when two of his Big Apple properties went into foreclosure and he was accused of owing $2 million (£1.29 million) in state taxes.
