The entertainer's lawyer, Tamika Harris, said a portion of the money has been paid over in two instalments.

"She decided to pay that amount, she didn't receive orders from the court," said Harris. "We have already received some of the money, so now the amount is less than $20 million that she needs to pay."

Messado is currently before the courts on several fraud charges, among them being the case relating to Mavado's money. Allegations are that Mavado, whose given name is David Brooks, began making arrangements to purchase a property through his attorney, Harris.

Mavado reportedly paid Messado $30.7 million for the property, and signed a sale agreement and a document giving him possession.

However, it was later discovered that the property was not for sale.
