The bitter divorce / child support battle between Kelis and soon-to-be-ex-husband Nas, yesterday saw the ‘Bossy’ singer come out the victor in court. Rapper Nas has been ordered to pay out a whole lot of money to her monthly, as ruled by a New York judge. Peep the report via TMZ below:
Kelis just hit the jackpot in court today — a judge awarded her a ton of money in her bitter divorce battle with estranged hubby Nas.A judge decided Nas has to pay Kelis $55,000 a month in combined spousal and child support plus the mortgage on their L.A. residence.Nas also has to pay Kelis — who gave birth last night to the couple’s only child — for the baby nurse, prenatal expenses and medical insurance.The rapper also has to pay $35,000 to his worst nightmare — Kelis’ lawyer, disso-queen Laura Wasser.
While the $55,000 monthly figure includes spousal support, child support and mortgage payments, one has to wonder if Kelis is actually putting up anything financially by herself. I mean she was earning / made a living prior to meeting Nas and for a significant amount of their relationship. Yes, he was the breadwinner, but I struggle to believe she has ‘nothing’. Then again, we don’t know the nitty gritty of what went on etc. I just hope they fix up for the sake of their child, 3 -day old Knight Jones.
