Nas Ordered to Pay Kelis $299K in Child Support, Legal Fees

NasQueens rapper Nas has been entangled in a bitter dispute over child support costs with his estranged wife and singer Kelis for almost a year, and it looks like the case is finally coming to a close. According to TMZ, their dispute was settled in Los Angeles County Superior Court on Monday, where Nas was ordered to pay Kelis $299,015.50 in fees and child support.

Nas is required to pay Kelis $47,249.42 in back child support and $40,454 in back spousal support, as well as 90 percent of Kelis’ legal fees — $155,787.28 for lawyers, plus another $48,549.83 in accounting expenses. Additionally, the court has ordered Nas to pay $10,000 per month in spousal support until he pays off his debt.

This is yet another victory for Kelis’ lawyer, Laura Wasser, who has won high profile cases for Britney Spears, Angelina Jolie, Kiefer Sutherland, Nick Lachey, Stevie Wonder and many more.
