The court documents show that the law firm sent Kingston invoices for their work from July 2013 to June 2015. The only payment the singer made to the lawyer was back in September 2013 in the amount of $5,000.
The total bill for the lawyer totaled close to $17,500 which would have left Kingston will only $12,500 owed. However, due to the interest charges for him not paying for over a year and a half, the total due now is $16,999.26
The firm said they demanded payment from Kingston but he refused to pay up on the amount owed. They filed suit demanding the 17k and attorney fees for having to even bring the lawsuit.

The firm explains that back in September they reached a settlement deal with Kingston. Per the deal he was to pay $15k in 4 payments. The first payment was to be made on September 18th in the amount of $2,500. However, the singer only sent over $1,500 days after the due date.
They accuses the singer of failing to pay any of the other payments and only sending over the $1,500. The deal they reached also had a provision if Kingston failed to make the 4 payments then he would be hit with a $28,500 judgement.
They are demanding the judge order Kingston to pay up $27k (since he made one payment) ASAP.
