The hearing was part of an ongoing child support case between the 28-year-old rap star and ex-girlfriend LaShon Dixon, who requested the hearing when she failed to receive payment for her attorneys' bill in November.
T.I. arrived in court prepared to pay and claimed it was just an oversight. "It was just a clerical error, totally innocent," he admitted. "I will accept full responsibility for that."
In September, an Atlanta judge ordered the multi-platinum selling rapper to increase his child support payment from $2,000 to $3,000 a month. The rapper was also awarded joint custody of the 7 and 8-year-old boys, but custody terms are still being sorted out.
T.I. is scheduled to begin a one year prison sentence on federal gun possession charges in March.
