NEW YORK, NY - SEPTEMBER 27: Pierre Pee Thomas and Lira Galore attend the Billboard 2018 R&B Hip-Hop Power Players event at Legacy Records on September 27, 2018 in New York City.

A judge has ruled that Pierre “Pee” Thomas, the CEO of Quality Control Records violated a court order by posting disparaging messages regarding his ex and the mother of his daughter, Lira Galore, and has punished him with a $11,000 fine, as Bossip reports.

Thomas breached a court order barring both Thomas and Galore from talking about the case via social media, according to Judge Belinda Edwards. Late last year, Thomas had blasted Galore on Instagram for a myriad of alleged offenses, including doing cocaine while she was pregnant and conspiring with a pimp against him.

Judge Edwards ruled that the record executive posted altered text messages purported to be between him and Galore, along with “disparaging photos” and “false comments,” according to the signed court order. Now Thomas has to pay the court $11,000 for that violation, in addition to paying Galore’s $2,500 attorney feeds, before the end of the week. If Thomas doesn’t pay the fines, he could face more sanctions, including jail time.

On Tuesday (July 28), Judge Edwards declared the CEO the legal father of Galore’s one-year-old daughter, Khaleesi, which resulted in Thomas having to pay Galore $3,500 a month in child support. Thomas has to begin paying the child support next month, according to the court order.
