Mos Def’s attorney that represented him in a expensive divorce in 2006 claim they have yet to be paid for the work done:
Rapper/actor Mos Def has been landed with a $60,000 lawsuit from his own attorney, after failing to pay for an expensive divorce from his ex-wife. Bosses at legal firm Blank Rome claim the star – real name Dante Smith – owes them the sum in unpaid fees and retainers, after they helped untangle him from his marriage to Maria Yepes in 2006. A representative for the star failed to respond to requests for comment. It’s not the only legal mess Mos Def is in right now – he is facing charges of felony robbery and malicious destruction of private property after fashion photographer Volker Corell claimed the rap star ripped a camera from his neck, smashed it to the ground and then took off with it during a confrontation in Las Vegas in August.
Even though Mos has that lil’ felony charge out in Vegas, we are still giving the conscious brother a chance to explain himself. In the meantime, why do Bossipers think he hasn’t broken his attorney off with the ends he owes him?
