(E News) - We're betting Bow Wow's pretty barkin' mad about this.

A California District Court judge has ordered the 26-year-old rapper (real name: Shad Gregory Moss) to pay a porn star almost $80,000 for using footage of her in one of his videos without her permission, E! News has confirmed.

French adult film star Celine Tan scored the legal victory after suing the rapper back in 2012.

Specifically, according to the ruling obtained by E! News, Bow Wow will have to pony up $51,900 in punitive damages and $26,790 in attorney's fees, which, when added to other miscellaneous fees, brings his total to a cha-chinging $79,346.07.

The judge also issued an injunction barring Bow Wow from continuing to use the footage in question.

When it comes to the eyes of the law, looks like Bow Wow's been left in the doghouse.
