Nas is fighting back. The recently divorced father is trying to block his ex-wife Kelis from receiving any spousal support.

The “Milkshake”singer is asking for $72,728 a month, reports tmz.com, a number that has forced The N to file legal papers to the judge in their divorce case.

As previously reported, back in July, the Queensbridge-bred rapper was ordered to pay $44,000 a month in child support for their newborn son, Knight Jones.

In addition to the trying to block Kelis’ from getting spousal support, Nas is also trying to get joint custody of their child. —Max G
