In 2021, he dealt with some legal issues with Jay-Z. Thankfully, he settled in court in 2022, so there’s not much drama left floating around for Damon.
The entrepreneur and record executive has been making waves in the music industry for years. Now, fans are curious to know more about his family life. How many kids does Damon have? Here’s a breakdown.

In 2020, he welcomed his fifth child into the world with his current fiancé, Raquel Horn.

After Raquel gave birth to Damon‘s fifth baby, Dusko, he posted a tribute to her on Instagram saying, “We did it! @raquelmhorn what you did last night was incredible your a warrior a fine warrior... I love you and the life you created for us… thank you #InvestInWomen @babydusko.”

I love you so much… thank you for holding my hand being my shoulder to cry on and my strength to move forward.” Damon's relationship with Raquel has been in motion since 2015.
In a report by Forbes, Damon and Raquel struggled with infertility and late-term pregnancy loss before they were able to welcome their son. These days, she is determined to spread awareness and open up dialogue about infertility struggles. She spoke about her pregnancy journey saying, "When I first started trying to have a baby, I didn't think it would be an issue, you know; Puerto Rican family, Grandma's got nine siblings, my mom had no issues."
She went on: "Plus, I was focused on my career, so that made having a kid placed on the back burner."
Reportedly, Raquel spent months going through "traumatic" failed pregnancy attempts. However, Raquel told Forbes that Damon was with her through the ups and downs of their pregnancy journey.
"I am fortunate to have such a dedicated partner," she stated, per Forbes.
Thankfully, the couple was able to welcome Dusko to the world.
