A New York City law firm has said Prince owes more than 700,000 dollars (£430,000) in legal fees for services that included helping to settle financial obligations to his former wife.

The firm is suing the Purple Rain singer in state Supreme Court in Manhattan.

Patterson Belknap Webb&Tyler says in a lawsuit filed on Tuesday the musician failed to pay it for handling cases in Ireland, California and New York. The law firm also says it was not paid for representing him in his divorce. It says he has paid 125,000 dollars (£77,000).

The 52-year-old singer is best known for 1980s hits such as When Doves Cry and 1999.

Joining a discussion group will be lots of fun. You'll enjoy brainstorming with fellow visionaries. The idea for a community improvement project is worth developing. You and your neighbours will benefit from a beautiful gathering spot. It's easy to feel alienated in this technological age. Create a space where you can escape computers, telephones and artificial lighting. Don't be surprised when you feel compelled to visit this sanctuary every day. Spending time outdoors will make you more relaxed and productive.More
