A U.S. judge has ordered the trustees of Nate Dogg's estate to settle the late rapper's unpaid medical bills.
Officials at CareMeridian in Orange County, California gave the hip-hop star more than $290,000 (£181,000) in specialist treatment from 2008 until 2010 but have yet to be paid for their care.
They also claim Nate Dogg's manager David Michery had personally guaranteed the debts would be paid off, according to a new legal filing obtained by Tmz.com.
The administrators of the star's estate are now being forced to pay CareMeridian $293,512 (£183,445) after a default judgment was entered in court.
Nate Dogg, real name Nathaniel Dwayne Hale, passed away in March (11) after suffering complications from multiple strokes.
