T.I. appeared in court in Atlanta on Tuesday and promptly paid an $8,000 overdue attorney bill for the mother of his two sons. the rapper told a judge the debt was an oversight.

Lawyers for LaShon Dixon had asked a Fulton County judge to intervene after the 27-year-old rapper, whose real name is Clifford Harris, failed to pay in November. He had agreed to the payment as part of an ongoing child support case between the former couple.

T.I. came to court with a check, effectively settling the matter.

During the hearing, which lasted more than four hours, T.I. told the judge the order to pay got lost when he changed assistants.

The two-time Grammy winner was ordered in September to pay more than $3,000 a month to Dixon as well as the boys' private school tuition, uninsured medical bills and expenses related to their extracurricular activities.
