With a just a little more than a month before serving time on federal weapons charges, T.I. will head to court for another legal matter.

According to the Associated Press, lawyers for LaShon Dixon, the mother of T.I.’s son’s, claim the rapper owes $8,000 for an attorney bill in Dixon’s child custody case against the rapper.

In September, T.I. was ordered to pay more than $3,000 a month to Dixon as well as the private school tuition and uninsured medical bills for the boys.

Expenses related to the boys’ extracurricular activities were also paid by the Atlanta-based hitmaker, who was paying about $2,000 a month to Dixon prior to the ruling.

At this time, the former couple is still negotiating child support and custody of the boys, ages 7 and 8.

According to Randy Kessler, Dixon’s attorney, T.I. was ordered by the court to pay the attorneys fees by November 19.

The rapper is set to appear in Fulton County Superior Court on Tuesday (January 6) to address the claims made by the attorneys.

The upcoming hearing comes as T.I. prepares to begin a one-year prison sentence in March after completing 1,000 hours of community service.

The rapper, who also fathers two sons by his fiancé Tameka "Tiny" Cottle, pleaded guilty to federal weapons charges last year.
