TMZ reports that before Nate Dogg passed away, those who were caring for his medical needs were never compensated. Now a Judge is forcing Nate Dogg's estate to pay up.

After Nate Dogg suffered his second stroke back in 2008 he was moved to a facility in Orange County for rehab and caretaking of major injuries. TMZ has obtained papers that reveal Nate Dogg racked up $290,000 in medical treatment from 2008 until 2010. One of Nate's manager's David Michery, guaranteed them that they would be paid, but thus far, nothing.

Now a Judge is ordering that Nate's estate hand over $293,512.52 to the caretakers.
