Storch Sued Over Late Child Support Payments
Producer SCOTT STORCH has been hit with a lawsuit by his ex-girlfriend after failing to meet demands for child support. The beatmaker has been plagued by recent reports he is facing financial difficulty after it was revealed he is in arrears on more than $400,000 (GBP200,000)-worth of tax payments for his Miami, Florida, mansion. And now Storch - who, in 2006, had his annual income estimated at $17 million (GBP8.5 million) by Forbes magazine, and reportedly charges a minimum of $100,000 (GBP50,000) a track - is accused of falling behind on monthly payments of $7,500 (GBP3,750) towards the upkeep of his 21-month-old son Jalen, from his on/off relationship to Dalene Daniel. According to TMZ.com, the legal papers were filed in Miami-Dade County Court on 4 January (08). In the suit, Daniel claims Storch skipped payments for December (07) and January (08), and has been "habitually late" on other month's cheques. Storch, 34, also has another son from a previous relationship.
