Damon Dash Said He’s Trying To Repair Relationship With Daughters

A judge has denied music mogul Damon Dash’s demand for joint custody of his two daughters after he accused their mother Rachel Roy of ruining his relationship with the girls.

But the recent hearing was still a victory for Dash, because LA County Superior Court Judge Armen Tamzarian granted Dash’s request for more parenting time with his youngest daughter Tallulah, 8, and OK’d his request for family therapy to repair his relationship with the oldest girl, Ava, 16.

Dash, who recently launched the TV network, Damon Dash TV, said in court papers that his ex-wife “has gone to extreme measures to paint a horrendous picture of me to our children,” telling the kids about all of their money and legal issues, blaming everything bad in their lives on him and made the youngest daughter feel bad about having fun with him, according to his petition.

But Judge Tamzarian said he didn’t find a big enough change in Dash and Roy’s circumstances to switch up their current custody agreement, which sees Roy with the girls most of the time, according to the July 26 ruling, which was obtained by BOSSIP. However, the judge did tweak their current visitation schedule to allow weekend overnight visits with his youngest daughter, Tallulah.


The judge also OK’d the “Family Therapy” star’s request for counseling with Ava, and ruled daddy and daughter must attend a minimum of six sessions and Roy and Dash must share the cost of treatment. The judge also ruled that neither parent could trash talk the other in front of the kids or on social media.

Besides granting some of Dash’s demands, the judge also placated Roy, who has claimed that Dash has smoked weed around the girls on numerous occasions, according to court papers.

“Neither party shall use marijuana during their custodial time with the minor children,” the judge ordered.

The ruling is the latest in the ongoing legal battle between the exes. We exclusively reported that a New York judge issued a warrant for Dash’s arrest last year over $342,000 in back child support and other debts to Roy.

We’ve reached out to Dash for comment. The exes are due back in court next month.
