Scott Storch pays up in child support battle
Hip-hop record producer Scott Storch can now walk the streets of Florida without fear of being arrested by the police, because a judge has already lifted the arrest order against him this week after paying off a big amount off of his child support debt.
According to reports, a warrant was issued for the arrest of 38-year-old Scott Storch earlier this month after missing a hearing in Florida over claims he had fallen behind on his court-mandated payments child support payments to his baby mama, Vanessa Bellido, amounting to a whopping $28,300 (£17,688).
The lawyer of Scott Storch said that the hitmaker — who filed for bankruptcy in 2009 after famously blowing his multi-million dollar fortune on girls, drugs and fast cars — managed to work out a deal with prosecutors and forked over a cheque worth $20,000 (£12,500) this week to lift the arrest warrant against him.
Scott Storch has been given six months to settle the remaining $8,300 child support debt.
Storch produces a variety of music, particularly hip hop, reggaeton, and R&B. His label, Storch Music Company (formerly Storchaveli Recordings) is responsible for signing Brooke Hogan and Nox. He also has his own music production company called Tuff Jew Productions LLC which is published by Reservoir Media Management.
