Kelis Tells Nas “You Owe Me”…$40K Per Month!
Nas and Kelis
Nas may have spit the lyrics, but he is now the one who owes big time.
As many of you may know, Kelis gave birth to his baby boy on Wednesday July 22nd.
The Associated Press reported that just a day after their baby was born, Nas was ordered by a Los Angeles judge to pay approximately $40,000 per month to Kelis.
He’s also in the hole for another $45,000 into attorney and accountant fees that Kelis incurred.
Of the monthly payments, $30,471 is for spousal support per month and $9,027 is for their son, who they named Knight.
Since Kelis filed for divorce back in April, the couple has been going through a bitter battle over support payments. Kelis is claiming that Nas hasn’t even paid many of the costs associated with her pregnancy.
Nas’ lawyer disagrees, stating that the rapper has paid $30,000 in expenses and that he has maintained her health insurance.
This being said, the amount that Nas owes will be reevaluated in a September hearing.
The judge felt that this amount of money would be adequate to “accomodate Kelis’ lifestyle.
Apparently her income has decreased in recent months, and she is trying to get a new record deal.
Do you think that the amount Kelis was awarded is reasonable?
Method Man and Red Man definitely had something to say about the situation. Check out this video where the two discuss the absurdity of the settlement, how women should be independent and more.
