Pras Michel makes it to court after World Cup blunder

Former Fugees star Pras Michel revived his child support battle in New York City on Thursday (24Jul14) just weeks after he was scolded by a magistrate for skipping a previous hearing to reportedly attend the soccer World Cup in Brazil.

The musician-turned-film producer hit headlines last month (Jun14) when he missed a court hearing in Manhattan because he was reportedly out of the country on a trip to the sporting event.

He was ordered back to court on Thursday, and the star showed up to face his former girlfriend Angela Severiano, who is seeking a raise in her child support payments.

During the hearing, Severiano told the court Michel's four-year-old son Landon is living in a cramped studio apartment while his father is away enjoying a life of luxury, according to the New York Post.

She is seeking more money from the star to cover school fees and a move to a larger home.

Michel is scheduled to testify in September (14).
