SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (AP) — The singer Stevie B is in a Massachusetts courtroom for a hearing on what the state says is more than $400,000 in unpaid child support.

The singer, best known for the 1990 hit "Because I Love You (The Postman Song)," was arrested Sept. 30 after performing at the MassMutual Center in Springfield. He spent several days in jail and was released after making an $11,000 payment.

Stevie B's full name is Steven Bernard Hill, and he lives in Las Vegas. He told The Associated Press he disputes the amount that an Agawam (AG'-ah-wahm) woman claims he owes in support of their two daughters.

His lawyer said previously that during Friday's court hearing the singer planned to present documentation of all the payments he has made.
