Dame Dash is in the news again. The mother of the one-time music mogul’s 16-year-old son, Damon Dash Jr., made news earlier this week when she failed to appear in Family Court with her son.
The younger Dash has not returned home to his father, who has sole custody, since he went to visit his mother Linda Williams at her Long Island home last week.
Ms. Williams had been ordered to appear before Manhattan Family Court Judge Susan Knipp on Tuesday (Sept 9), but failed to show. A new date was set for today, September 11; with the judge warning a bench warrant for her arrest would be issued if she missed today’s scheduled court appearance.
The elder Mr. Dash has had a run of bad luck lately, in August it was revealed that his mortgage holder was seeking to foreclose on two of his New York homes for non-payment. Also in August, Stride Rite rescinded Mr. Dash’s licensing rights on the company’s Pro-Keds sneaker line.
