Nas to Pay Kelis $55,000 a Month in Child Support

And the winner is … Kelis! A judge has ordered her soon-to-be ex-hubby Nas, to pay her $55,000 per month. The 29-year-old who just gave birth to the pair’s first child together, Knight Jones, will receive the monthly payment, which will cover both child and spousal support.

Nas, born Nasir Jones, will also foot the bill for his ex’s mortgage, prenatal expenses and medical insurance. Additionally he will pay $35,000 to Kelis’ lawyer Laura Wesser. A well-known celebrity divorce lawyer, Wesser’s previous clients include Angelina Jolie, Stevie Wonder, and Britney Spears.

The estranged couple have been battling it out in court since news of their split broke in April. Kelis claimed that her ex was being stingy with his reported $11 million salary, incurred from his record deal with current label, Def Jam. Nas refuted such claims, noting that he made closer to $4 million from the deal.

Despite the birth of their son, it doesn’t look like the two will be reconciling anytime soon. According to reports, Nas was noticeably intoxicated during an impromptu performance in his former Queens, NY, neighborhood. The rapper announced the birth of his son to the crowd but made no mention of Kelis.
