EXCLUSIVE 1123_Drake-Bell_getty
Nickelodeon star Drake Bell just took a beating in court — because the actor/singer has been ordered to cough up $42,787 to Selena Gomez” music producer … for crappy songs Bell allegedly never paid for.

our sources broke the story … producer John Fields — who”s produced songs for Selena, Jimmy Eat World, and the Jonas Brothers — sued Bell for $36,000, claiming Bell commissioned 9 songs from Fields for his new album … but only paid for 5.

Fields claimed Bell agreed to pay $9,000 per song — and since Bell failed to pay for 4 of them … he sued for the outstanding balance of $36k.

Now, Fields is getting all that and more — because a judge has issued a default judgment against Drake for failing to respond to the lawsuit.

According to the court docs, Drake”s been ordered to pay the full amount plus interest and attorneys” fees — totaling $42,787.

Calls to Drake”s reps were not returned.
