The 44-year-old singer and actor during a hearing at the Fulton County Courthouse in Atlanta on Tuesday, was also ordered to pay almost $400,000 to her attorneys, according to a report by TMZ.

Tyrese argued on the stand that the monthly amount is excessive as Lee allegedly earns a substantial income on her own. The Alter Ego singer’s protest fell flat, though, as he was ultimately ordered by Judge Kevin Farmer to fork out $237,944 in back child support payments to his ex-wife — with whom he shares a four-year-old daughter named Soraya — and $399,000 for Samantha’s attorney fees.
