Miami producer Scott Storch is putting his legal woes behind him and getting back to music-making with help from hip-hop newcomer Post Malone.
Storch posted up a picture alongside Malone on his Instagram page this week.
Early January reports revealed wealthy businessmen Brad Cohen and Seth Cohen had filed a lawsuit in Florida against Storch.
Brad Cohen and Seth Cohen, who are wealthy through insurance and real estate holdings, say that upon the June bankruptcy, they saw that Storch “was once again ready to prove himself as a worthy record producer and use his deep connections in the music industry to make money for the three of them” so they allegedly entered into a deal with him and put up more than $1 million to fund his comeback. Plus, states the lawsuit, Storch was provided with a weekly salary, a Rolls-Royce Ghost and a rental house in Parkland, Florida. (The Hollywood Reporter)
Recently, Scott said some drug-induced decisions cost him a close-knit bond with music mogul Dr. Dre.
“I regret the way I treated Dr. Dre after he so graciously opened up the doors for this kingdom to me and I know the mistakes I made were 100 percent drug-induced and I just feel like that relationship isn’t over. And I hope to work with him in the future. Hopefully, he can accept me back into his good graces.” (HHW)
Last fall, Scott completed a court-ordered educational program.
The judge in Storch’s bankruptcy case ordered him to take a course in financial management. Storch — who’s produced tracks for Christina Aguilera, Justin Timberlake and Beyonce — was down to $100 in cash, some clothes, and a watch after a string of poor decisions … including reportedly blowing through $30 mil just on drugs.
