Fugees - Pras Michel Blasted By Magistrate Over Skipped Court Hearing

A New York City magistrate took aim at former Fugees star Pras Michel for missing a child support hearing on Thursday (12Jun14).

The rapper-turned-film producer was due in court in Manhattan to face former girlfriend Angela Severiano, who is seeking a raise in her child support payments, but he failed to attend as he was in South America.

He tried to phone in to offer his testimony from Bogota, Colombia, but Family Court Magistrate Karen Kolomechuk stopped him.

She said, "It's not acceptable to call in from a cafe in Colombia. This is not a free-for-all."

Michel's legal team allegedly told the court he couldn't leave Colombia because of issues with his passport.

Severiano is seeking $7,000 (£4,375) to cover school fees and a move to a larger apartment. She currently receives $3,000 (£1,875)-a-month from the star.
