Rapper Lil Mama has lost a legal battle with her former lawyer after she was accused of failing to pay her bill.

The Lip Gloss hitmaker, 24, was ordered to hand over around $18,000 (£12,000) to an attorney who worked for her up until 2011 after she was sued for falling behind on her legal fees, according to Tmz.com.

The lawyer, who reportedly worked for the star by helping her protect the rights to her stage name, won a court fight with Lil Mama and was awarded the $18,000 (£12,000) sum, which includes the bill, interest and other fees.
