In 2006, Rolling Stone estimated that Storch had earned over $70 million in his career.[2] According to a 2007 Forbes article, "Hip Hop Cash Kings," Storch was one of the highest-paid people in the music industry in 2007, having earned $17 million in that year. His fee per track was around $85,000, exclusive of publishing royalties. In July 2008, it was reported that Storch was unable to pay over $500,000 in late property taxes, and a warrant was issued for his arrest for failure to appear at his child-support hearing. According to his attorney, there had been "mismanagement" of Storch's finances.[3]

Storch has been romantically linked with emcee Lil Kim,[4] actress Morgan T, Paris Hilton, and video model Erica Mena.[5][6] He is rarely, if ever, photographed without his signature aviator-style sunglasses.

Storch is well-known for wearing ostentatious diamond jewelry and a collection of exotic sports cars.

In June 2008, a Miami-Dade judge ordered an arrest warrant for Storch when he missed a hearing regarding back child support for his son with ex-girlfriend Dalene Jennifer Daniel. In addition to being behind more than $46,000 in child support, Storch also owes approximately $720,000 in property taxes from 2006 through 2008.[7] He was arrested in April 2009 for a Grand Theft Case stemming out of Broward County Florida. That Charge was dismissed on June 26th, 2009 due to a technicality on notice according to his lawyer Bradford Cohen.

Hip hop producer Timbaland refers to Storch in his single "Give It to Me,"
Timberland - Give It to Me - Funny videos are here singing: "I get a half a million for my beats, you get a couple grand/Never going to see the day that I ain't got the upper hand/I'm respected from California way down to Japan/I'm a real producer and you just the piano man/Your songs don't top the charts, I heard 'em, I'm not a fan." Timbaland confirmed that he was talking about Storch in an interview with MTV presenter Sway Calloway. He said that he would go after the haters on his new album Timbaland Presents Shock Value. [8]

Storch responded with the track "Built Like That"

on February 26, 2007, which features Philadelphia MC Nox. On the track, Storch claims to have been solely responsible for the production of the 2002 Justin Timberlake hit "Cry Me a River," for which he received credit as a co-writer and pianist, but production was solely credited to Timbaland. He also claims that Timbaland's production partner Danja has been responsible for his recent string of hits with Nelly Furtado and Justin Timberlake, and mocks the commercial failure of Timbaland's former Beat Club label. They recently ended their feud. This was confirmed by Timbaland in the final issue of Scratch Magazine.[9]

The eighth track on the first disc of Christina Aguilera's
double album Back to Basics was titled, "F.U.S.S." rumored to stand for "Fuck You, Scott Storch." Storch produced and co-wrote several tracks for Aguilera's previous album, Stripped. Storch was asked to be involved with Back to Basics, but he refused to be a part of the project when Aguilera declined to fly him and his entourage out to her, among other demands, which led to a breakdown of their relationship. "F.U.S.S." was written as a response to the animosity between Aguilera and Storch during the recording of Stripped. In an interview with Maxim, she said, "That’s a way of burying my experience with him. We did great work on Stripped.... When I tried to work with him again, he made uncalled demands. It was disappointing that someone would get affected like that."[10]

On April 25, 2009 it was stated on XM channel 66 that Storch was trying to recover from a 3 year cocaine stint that has left him at rock bottom. He’s now in arrears on taxes to the state of Florida. His Palm Island house in Miami is listed in tax records with past-due amounts totaling $435,602 dating back to 2006. It was also stated that Storch lost earnings of potentially $26 million during that time period.[11]
