Lil Mama

Makes STUPID Decision

Gets Ass Kicked In Court

Lil Mama -- the rapper behind the song "Lip Gloss" -- just got destroyed in court ... after pulling one of the dumbest moves ever ... TMZ has learned.

Mama was sued by her lawyer -- a guy who specializes in intellectual property -- who claims he busted his butt to protect her rights to the name "Lil Mama."  Kind of an important guy in her life.

Problem is, the lawyer claims he worked for Mama until 2011 ... but she stopped paying him in 2008. So, he did what lawyers do ... he took her ass to court.

In the end, the rapper (who also starred as Left Eye in the recent TLC movie on VH1 -- suffered an embarrassing and expensive defeat and was ordered to pony up roughly $18k for the bill, interest and other fees.

Moral of the story: don't stiff your lawyer ... idiot.

Those Lil Rappers should have finished high school.
Reading and Writing are paramount to a successful career of making non music for the masses ...

She only has to pay $18,000? Big deal. Why did he keep working for her for three years if she didn't pay him anyway? That was dumb too.

And the other moral of the story is don't continue to work for people who do not pay you. I thought they taught this in law school.

Too bad TMZ has devolved into getting so personal over some attorney's fee. This article is particularly viscous and I have a feeling this attorney may be friends with someone on staff. This seems like a dispute probably between her management and this attorney they dumped.

You classless, ruthless, pieces of ****ing ****! How dare you starving/feed the hungry/peons say anything about her finances, name, and celebrator status? She's doing what she dreamed to do in the past. Success is success. She's a multi millionaire. You disgusting pricks. All of you.
