Rapper Flo Rida has settled a $1.2 million (£750,000) tax debt. The Wild Ones hitmaker, real name Tramar Dillard, was previously accused of falling behind on payments to officials at America's Internal Revenue Service (IRS) for money earned between 2009 and 2011.
However, the star has since paid up and the tax lien has been dismissed, according to TMZ.com.
Rapper Flo Rida has avoided paying around $417,345 (£278,230) in damages to an Australian concert promoter after a judge upheld his appeal against a breach of contract case. The Birthday hitmaker, real name Tramar Dillard, was sued for failing to perform at the Fat As Butter music festival in 2011 after receiving a fee of around $55,000 (£36,660).
Promoters of the show, Mothership Music, sued Dillard and his management team, but were forced to file a court summons via Facebook.com when he allegedly failed to respond to them.
An initial ruling went in favour of the promoters after the hip-hop star failed to show up for a scheduled court date, but he challenged the decision in June (13) and a New South Wales judge upheld his appeal on Tuesday (20Aug13).
The judge declared Facebook was not an appropriate channel to file the court summons through because there was no evidence the rapper was connected to the page.
Justice Robert McFarlan said, "The evidence did not establish, other than by mere assertion, that the Facebook page was in fact that of Flo Rida and did not prove that a posting on it was likely to come to his attention in a timely fashion."
Rapper Flo Rida has been ordered to pay child support for a boy he previously denied fathering. Gloria Holloway launched legal action against the Good Feeling hitmaker in 2011, demanding financial support over claims he is the father of her son.
Flo Rida, real name Tramar Dillard, shot down her allegations at the time, insisting a DNA test he took came back negative.
However, chiefs at the Florida Department of Revenue are now asking Flo Rida to hand over details of his finances so they can determine how much he owes Holloway.
According to TMZ.com, the court established Flo Rida as the father of the two year old because he did not officially dispute the claim.
Rapper Flo Rida is contesting a legal ruling in Australia after he was ordered to pay $432,704 (£279,164) to the organisers of a music festival Down Under for allegedly failing to show up. The hip-hop star was sued by bosses behind the Fat as Butter music festival after he was allegedly handed a $55,000 (£35,484) advance and then missed the event in New South Wales in 2011 due to transport issues.
Flo Rida, real name Tramar Dillard, failed to respond to the legal action, so a judge ordered him to hand back his expenses, as well as damages and legal fees.
The star's attorneys are now appealing the judgement, insisting the rapper shouldn't have to adhere to the New South Wales District Court's ruling because he may not have been in the state when the legal proceedings began, according to the Sydney Daily Telegraph.
The court of appeal hearing continues.
