Child support is a common issue in dispute between parents who have parted ways as a couple. When the parties are well-known, wealthy or both, this can be a public disagreement. For those who are involved in businesses where vast sums of money changes hands, it can be linked to the child support concerns and other aspects of family law. Such was the case with the entertainment entrepreneur Dame Dash.
Mr. Dash was embroiled in a dispute over child support for his children with two different mothers. He owed $950,000 in overdue payments. However, Mr. Dash was also dealing with a business lawsuit with film producer and director Lee Daniels. That lawsuit for $5 million stemmed from assertions that Mr. Dash loaned Mr. Daniels money for a film investment.
