Meanwhile Damon can be seen posing shirtless with a group of girls and dancing with Aaliyah.

A source who was at the Fourth of July party in the Hamptons confirmed that Jay-Z, who was 30 at the time, appeared besotted with the then 21-year-old star.

The eyewitness said: 'Jay-Z had just had a big hit with Big Pimpin' and he decided to have this party with Damon and the rest of his crew for the Fourth of July. Diddy was there too.

'Aaliyah was becoming super famous at the time and had just starred in her first movie, Romeo Must Die, so they were all doing really well.

'Jay-Z rented a mansion in East Hampton and they had a catered barbecue in a tent in the back yard. It was a really fun party.'

The source added: 'Damon was dating Aaliyah at the time and Jay-Z was single, he wasn't there with a girl. 

'I saw that Jay-Z was trying to get close to Aaliyah but I didn't think too much of it at the time.

I probably thought they were just friends or making music together.

'Now that Damon has said what he said it all makes sense. Jay-Z was all over Aaliyah.

'They were hugging each other and you could totally see there was a chemistry between them.

'I knew that Damon was going out with her so I did think it was a little weird.

'Sometimes people share girlfriends. I don't know if they were sharing but they wouldn't be the first.'

Dash, 48, co-founded Roc-A-Fella Records and hip hop clothing line Rocawear with Jay-Z in the 1990s.

Their partnership came to a sour end after Jay-Z bought Dash out of Rocawear in the fall of 2005.

Dash dated Aaliyah for about a year until she was killed in a horrific plane crash in the Bahamas in August 2001.

Although they were not formally engaged Dash claimed that they were planning to get married before she died.

She had previously been illegally wed in a secret marriage to disgraced R&B star R. Kelly when she was just 15.

The photos were taken about two years before Jay-Z moved on to his now wife Beyoncé (pictured in 2002)

The song includes the lines: 'Have you ever loved somebody used to get the party poppin'/ We used to party hop/ We used to be in the Hamptons/ Party a lot.'

Speaking to Page Six in late November, Dash said of Jay-Z's pursuit of the rising star: 'He tried very hard.

'I did not mean to fall in love with Aaliyah, she was just that cool.

'But you know, we were both going hard … everybody was trying to get to Aaliyah — it was not just Jay.'

Dame Dash Addresses Child Support Arrest: 'Is It Because I'm Black

Dame Dash: 'Jay-Z Tried Very Hard To Get Aaliyah!!'
Dame Dash recently shared that his former friend and business partner, Jay-Z tried every hard to get late singer, Aaliyah.

In the end, it was Dame who won Aaliyah's heart.

"He tried very hard," he told Page Six.

"I did not mean to fall in love with Aaliyah, she was just that cool," he said. "But you know, we were both going hard … everybody was trying to get to Aaliyah — it was not just Jay."

Dame still has fond memories of his time with the "4 Page Letter," singer.



"She was just cool as hell … we would laugh … we never stopped hanging, and that is what happened with her. There was never any obligation or any title … just liking being around somebody for who they are. I was not in love with Aaliyah through the television — I fell in love with her from hanging out and meeting her. She looked different than Aaliyah on the TV screen."

He added, "I did not know Jay was trying to holler at her, but then it just happened like that. He was trying, I was trying. Everybody was trying — he was going hard."

Breaking: Damon Dash arrested in NYC for unpaid child support
Dame Dash Addresses Child Support Arrest: 'Is It Because I'm Black?!'
Dame Dash has issued a statement following reports of his arrest over owing over $1 million in unpaid child support.

"They never talk about the fact that I've owned a $100 million company for the last ten years. They don't talk about my television network, 24 hours, independent. Or Dame Dash studios streaming service… independent," he said in a clip posted to Instagram.

"They never talk about those things. That's what I'm curious about, that narrative… Why is the narrative always I'm broke? When the President owes money, it don't mean sh*t, he gets elected. When I'm a businessman, I'm independent, I cut checks, and I make sure everyone knows it… But y'all don't talk about that. And that's what I wanna know. Is it because I'm Black? A Black man can't take care of other people without being broke or independent?"



According to Dame, he already coughed up the cash ashed of his arrest.

"I went to turn myself in. What money? I already paid it. And I still walked in with cuffs. But I look good though, so it doesn't matter."

Damon Dash willingly surrenders to NYC authorities over outstanding child support payments

“The hip-hop mogul — who says he’s recently fallen into dire straits with money — was arrested Wednesday in NYC after attempting to clear up two different warrants in his name for unpaid child support dough a judge says he owes Rachel Roy and Cindy Morales.

Dame’s got 2 daughters with the former, and a son with the latter. Earlier this year, it was revealed he owed nearly $400k to both women … but hadn’t paid up yet. He told us at the time he would — but it appears he hadn’t yet, and those debts have since ballooned.

Fast-forward to Wednesday … when Dame went to the city to try to take care of both warrants. The guy himself tells us he popped into a Manhattan courthouse, paid off about a million dollars to clear one warrant … and then tried going to another courthouse to deal with the other one.

Thing is … Dame says as soon as he stepped out of the courtroom to head to the other place, cops were all over him — about 7 deputies, we’re told. They cuffed him and processed him — and Dame says the officers then escorted him to Brooklyn to take care of the rest of his tab. All in all, we’re told Dame ended up cashing out over a mil to clear his name.

Dame tells us the deputies he dealt with were incredibly kind and cooperative with him. While it may suck he got busted for the child support — at least it’s finally taken care of.”

Famed music producer Damon Dash is tackling his child support troubles head on in a video where he also lashed out at the mothers of his children as he tried to explain why he has to turn himself in to the New York City Police Department after a warrant was issued for his arrest.

The former Roc-a-fella music mogul says that he has met his child support obligations and doesn’t believe he owes nearly $400,000 to the mothers of some of his children. There’s Cindy Morales, who is the mother of his son, Lucky and his ex-wife, Rachel Roy, with whom he shares daughters Ava and Tallulah, TMZ reports.

Dash said he’s paid both women their fair share of child support and cited a home he says he bought Morales for $150,000. He also said that Roy gets her child support payments directly from Dash’s share of the clothing company he co-owns with her. He claims she writes her own checks for her child support payments.

Dash ranted saying that the warrant is messing with major industry moves he’s trying to make. He even claims to have missed the funeral of Aunt Linda, who happens to be his cousin Stacey Dash’s mother, because of his child support troubles. Dash even said he’s willing to do jail time if it means all of this will be rectified and goes away.

G5 Cultivation Business: Dame Dash Teaches How to Build Your Brand [Video]

Things got heated between Damon Dash and Lee Daniels after Dame ran into the Director at an event and asked for $2 Million Dollars Lee owes him.

In the video which Dame uploaded to Instagram, you can here Dame asking Lee to pay him back the money which he loaned him to "pay for his dream" of being a director many years and Lee later went ghost on him.

Damon:

I straight up loaned this dude Lee Daniels 2 million to pay for his dream of being a director...it was the money I was using to fund my movies and stay Indy...he promised I get my money back in months...then he makes precious and goes missing so he doesn’t have to pay me...then then Butler...empire...same sh*t Why does this dude feel like he doesn’t have to pay me?...why do I have to look crazy to get my money back...or go to court...ask @theoriginalbigdaddy why he doesn’t feel like he has to pay me even though he has it...what type of sh*t is this.. #paywhatyouowe 

I’m going to put this whole thing on my ig tv in a few... true definition of a culture vulture...eats off the culture but Robs the culture at the same time... see you back in court Lee your gonna pay me what you owe...pleases everyone ask him way he doesn’t think he has to pay me...

After watching the video and reading the subtitles, it appears the debt is legit and Lee will be making a payment soon.


Damon Dash says Lee Daniels had no problem asking him for money and exploiting his goodwill, but he has a major problem keeping his word to pay it back ... and Dame's sick of it.
The Roc-A-Fella mogul told us Wednesday on "TMZ Live" ... Daniels ended up millions in the hole to him after making 2 movies -- 2004's "The Woodsman" and 2005's "Shadowboxer."
According to Dame ... Daniels promised him he'd get his money back no matter what, but then blew him off -- which is why Dash started suing Daniels in 2014. As we reported, they struck a settlement deal, but Damon tells us Lee's sticking to his "culture vulture" ways ... and still hasn't squared up.

I'm sure Jay-Z leaving threw him for a loop... that Big Pimpin video sure looks silly now.  But you live and you learn and you move on. Stop trying to prove you can afford things and invest wisely.

I hope Mr. Dash gets up from this financial nightmare; and, even do better than before. We need blacks in business and doing more business. This is out way out of the problems we as a people so often find ourselves stuck in.

However, we must be very careful to run our business professionally and legally. We must surround ourselves with proper advisors. Business and taxes arer like 'bread and butter', they go together.  You can't have one without the other. If you want to pay very little or no taxes, then make sure you have the expert financial advisors in place to walk you through the ins and outs of the tax laws. There is no short cut!!!

I've seen this happen too many times to our brothers and sisters. It doesn't matter how much money you're making and what you're doing with the profits. If you don't follow the letter of the law, you'll get caught. And, the end result is always worse by far!!!!

We must all learn to do it right. Run our business(s) the correct way and when problems comes up we won't need to fear: everything will be in black and white (proper bookkeeping, taxes and financial planning). Otherwise, in the end, we only outsmart ourselves.

It does not have to be this way. Give to Ceasar what is Ceasar's. Stop taking shorcuts when you're doing business. Whenever, you're making good money, make sure you have trusted and trained advisors to keep you financially secure and financially independent. Remember, also, risk management is a part of financial planning: contingencies should be prepared for, and it can be done.

For years I've tried to help and advise minority business owners, professional athletes, artists, performers, etc., but my efforts always seem to fall on deaf ears. They always seem bent on making a quick, fast buck without planning for the future and preserving wealth.

Wish you the very best Mr.Dash. And, yes, you can still get out of this and win....
