Mos Def Being Sued by His Own Attorney

- By Bossip Staff

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?

    Def U’re still my guy although I haven’t bought your album since the first one, but I dug your character and even seen U in Topdog/Underdog and last night in Cadillac Records and didn’t even know U were married and divorce…which brings me to this points…why when men portray themselves ass players and having all this access to woman they can’t ever seem to stay married…except LL Cool J (hopefully for ever, but for now)
