Scott Storch Returning After 30 Million Dollar Cocaine Addiction
Music producer Scott Storch is reportedly returning back to production after recovering from a three year cocaine addiction and a $30 Million loss of income due to his drug addiction.
Storch allegedly blew most of the small fortune on coke, cars, houses, lavish trips, parties and “poor judgment decisions,” according to his interview with MTV News.
Not in jail, not on the run from the police as rumored in numerous reports, but instead focusing on rebuilding his life, Storch claims that after hitting rock bottom, he’s “taking it back to square one” after going through recovery.
In his interview, Scott Storch says he’s again working with his publisher TVT and is heading back to the Hit Factory Studios.
Scott Storch, who’s known for producing hits as a music producer who has worked with artists such as Lil Wayne, Paris Hilton, Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, 50 Cent, Eminem, Chamillionaire, Chris Brown, Fat Joe, T.I., Mariah Carey, and BeyoncÃ©, amongst others, was arrested for grand theft auto earlier this April, for allegedly failing to return a 2004 Bentley he started renting in 2006 from the original owners Atlas Leasing Company and supposedly loaned to rapper Lil Kim, as previously reported on HipHopRX.com. After reportedly not returning the vehicle for several months after the due date sometime in 2007, Storch alleged lent rapper Lil Kim the car who was in possession of the vehicle until the repo man showed up to repossess the car in 2008.
In addition to his troubles, the producer supposedly is behind $720,000 in property taxes stemming from 2006 through 2008, as well as owes $46,000 in child support and was ordered back on February 13 of last year, to pay $509,717 to David Menefield, owner of the LA Confidential label, for a reported home loan, and four music tracks (valued at $400,000) Storch owed. The $509,717 also included attorney fees and fines for penalties.
Following Storch’s last arrest, the producer has been confined to a three-quarter house with a live-in counselor, given a curfew and is only allowed to go to back and forth to work in the studio so that he may still earn a living.
Storch is due back in Broward County Court on Friday, May 29 stemming from his last arrest for grand theft auto of the leased, un-returned Bentley.
