Nas Facing Financial Woes With Tax Debt Up to $3.3 Million

NasNas‘ financial woes continue to climb following his split from estranged wife and R&B singer Kelis, who filed for divorce last May. Last week, the Queens based MC pleaded not guilty to contempt of court after lawyer’s for Kelis filed paperwork alleging that he owes over $200,000 in child support, spousal support and lawyers fees. The couple will appear in court next month for a contempt hearing and, if found guilty, Nas could do jail time.

The judge overseeing the divorce proceedings said last Friday that it’s starting to look like Nas is trying to evade court orders. Attorney’s for the troubled rapper said he needs more time to prepare a defense that shows he isn’t able to pay $51,000 a month in child and spousal support. Kelis and Nas have one son together.

In addition to facing financial issues surrounding his divorce from Kelis, it’s also been reported that Nas owes the IRS a large sum of money. In October, a tax lien was placed on the rapper totaling $2.5 million dollars that has now ballooned to over $3.3 million dollars.

“Nas doesn’t have a clue he’s going under financially and doesn’t understand he can go to jail if he doesn’t pay child support,” a source told TMZ. It’s also been reported that Nas has been sending Kelis emails looking to reconcile, but Kelis has a new boyfriend and wants a divorce.
