Flo Rida - Flo Rida Fined Over Lawsuit Deception
Rapper Flo Rida has been ordered to help pay a former assistant's fees in their ongoing legal battle after a judge discovered he had misled court officials.
The Low hitmaker was sued by Mahogany Miller, who claimed she was sacked as the star's administrative assistant less than a day after complaining about her hours and pay.
Flo Rida's attorney hit back at the suit, insisting she was never officially hired and worked as an unpaid volunteer who only received expenses.
The star claimed in court documents that he was late replying to her suit after legal papers were served to the wrong person at the wrong address, but he later admitted they had been sent to the correct address, according to Tmz.com.
Now the presiding judge has fined Flo Rida - real name Tramar Dillard - for "premeditated" deception, ordering him to pay $7,000 (£4,375) towards Miller's legal fees.
The case is ongoing.
