American Express Wins Case Against Hip-hop Producer Sean Garrett
TMZ broke the story ... Amex sued Garrett -- who's had out hits with Beyonce, Usher, and Nicki Minaj -- claiming he never paid off the hefty tab on his card.
Amex filed a motion for default judgment last month -- because Garrett didn't respond to the lawsuit -- and the judge ruled in Amex's favor.
Unfortunately for Amex, Garrett has a ton of other financial woes -- the State of Georgia filed a tax lien against him earlier this year, claiming he owes over $1 MILLION in back taxes for the years 2006, 2007, and 2010.
Garrett previously claimed the AMEX bill was the result of identity theft. He has not responded to our calls for comment. more on this story
