Scott Storch Sued And, According To Reports, Back On The Drugs
Two men claimed that he gave the producer more than $1 million to help him revive his musical career.
Scott Storch was sued by two people who claimed to have supported him after he declared bankruptcy in June, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Brad Cohen and Seth Cohen say they came together to Storch and provided the producer with more than $ 1 million, including a weekly salary, a Rolls-Royce Ghost and a rental house in South Florida to support their return to music. At the time of the bankruptcy filing, Storch had blown an estimated $30 million dollars in drugs and was left with $3,600 worth of assets, including $100 in cash.
The parties had a fall in December, after Storch, who has worked with 50 Cent, Dr. Dre and Beyonce, according to reports, he failed a drug test and, according to contract, had to return the car.
The producer's lawyer, Richard Wolfe, responded to the complaint denying the legitimacy of the agreement, but Cohen's representative, Darren Heitner, insists that the contract is valid, and that Storch is the breach of the contract by the non-realization of production services. The Cohen brothers also cite Storch of the relationship with a woman named Florence Mirsky as problematic.
"Based on Storch (a) history of drug use, including evidence of recent abuse; (b) before squandering of the moneys received from the provision of services in the music industry; (c) declares an affiliation with Mirsky that has a real threat of diverting the money that was actually owed to the acc; and (d) sincere concern that CCS would otherwise not be able to collect the money to pay the important contributions provided by B. Cohen and S. Cohen, as a precautionary measure and additional resources in the net equity are necessary in the circumstances."
The Cohen brothers are seeking damages for breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty, fraud and unjust enrichment.
Wolfe spoke to the publication about the demand and says that there is not sufficient grounds for a case.
