Kelis has been ordered to pay $5,000 (£3,125) for a hair weave after allegedly failing to settle a salon bill.
The Milkshake hitmaker is said to have received the hairstyle at a Santa Monica, California salon last May (09) - but faced legal action from her stylist over the alleged outstanding debt.
Legal documents were subsequently filed and the case was sent to trial - but Kelis failed to attend the hearing on Monday (29Mar10), according to TMZ.com.
The website reports that the judge entered a default judgment for the R&B singer to pay the full amount.
