An arrest warrant has been issued for singer Pat Boone after the celebrated 1950s and '60s icon failed to appear in court.

TMZ reported a Los Angeles judge issued the warrant after the 79-year-old Boone had been ordered to appear in court related to a condominium he had bought on a luxury cruise ship. The company that is building the ship lost a lawsuit that was brought on by some of the investors in the project.

The company lost the case and was ordered to pay $800,000 in attorneys’ fees. However, those fees haven’t been paid so the lawyers for the investors are suing people, including Boone, who bought a condo unit on the ship.

Luxury Travel Magazine reported that Boone and his family had bought an apartment on the UTOPIA Ocean Liner although it’s not clear when the purchase was made.

“I am excited to take my family to these world class events on the world’s most luxurious ship,” Boone said, the travel magazine reported. “Everyone in my family is thrilled about having future family reunions on the UTOPIA and traveling the world without leaving our home on the sea. The people at Utopia have a powerful vision of using the ship to engage in philanthropy around the world, and I want to be a part of that as well.”

The ship was expected to stop in cities around the world to have guests attend such events like the Cannes Film Festival, Monte Carlo Grand Prix, The Olympics, Carnaval, Hong Kong Dragon Boat Festival, Melbourne Cup, and other worldwide events, according to Luxury Travel Magazine. David Robb, chairman of UTOPIA Residences, said Boone would have been joining other celebrities in purchasing one of the luxury apartments aboard the ship.

Because Boone didn’t show up for the scheduled appearance, the judge in the case ordered that he be arrested. Boone and his wife, Shirley, are reportedly on vacation in Hawaii. The two have been married since 1953.

Boone had a number of hit singles like “Love Letters in the Sand” and “April Love.” He is the father of Debby Boone, 57, who had the 1977 hit, “You Light Up My Life.”
