Mos Def Sued By His Own Lawyers

Rapper/actor MOS DEF has been landed with a $60,000 (GBP40,000) 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 (08).
