Update: Nas Ordered to Pay Kelis $51K in Monthly Support

A judge decided on Wednesday that the $44,000 in child support a month that Nas was paying to estranged wife Kelis was not enough.

According to the Associated Press, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge David Cunningham III raised the Queens rapper’s monthly support payments to $51,101. After a two-day hearing in court Cunningham determined that Nas made enough money in the last several months to increase the sum.

Despite the financial loss, Nas’ lawyer Mark Vincent Kaplan, managed to convince the judge to stop the Illmatic MC from paying expenses on the ex-couple’s Los Angeles home. –Elan Mancini

    First!
    Second Thats alot of money to pay someone who got money theyself. Maybe not as much as NAS, but Kelis been in the game awhile shouldn’t need that much support. Also if NAS is paying her this much How much is Wayne paying out? Guess if Kelis woulda had a baby it’d be a million, let Curtis Jack tell it lmao

    Dayum….

    SMH…

    Sounds like a good time for Nas to drop an album…

    “…Nas made enough money in the last several months to increase the sum.”
    ^^of course! he was tryna get it up (not that he’s broke, don’t have it or anything) to pay this broad… Nas, I say, fire your lawyer.

    now, lets be real. yeah, it might hurt. but, he can afford it. & doesn’t that 51k cover child support & alimony? he will be okay.

    co-sign “its cheaper to keep her”. i bet they’ll be back together… naw, on second thought, aint no way she gon give up that $51k a month. greedy broad.

  • norcal

    im glad im poor ill stick with my 300 month, no kid spends 25k a month the other 25k she spends every penny and then her kids

  • sealsaa

    Just read the specs on ThisIs50. Apparently, Kelis hasn’t filed a tax return in years, and claims that out of her 175k from Interscope, she only gets to keep 50k(managers, ect.) Let that be a lesson. This man’s getting raped for his hard earned money at the age of 36. It could happen to you.

  • Jhon da Analyst

    Fuckin bullshit. That’s Cali for you with all that Hollywood bullshit. I love Cali, don’t get me wrong but that’s why Kelis filed there. This nigga is paying what 50 Cent is paying and Nas aint worth $400 mil. WTF???!!!

  • What The ?

    This shit is depressing for real, what kind of male judge could agree with such bullshit, this should be a law of it’s own. When are men going to get crazy Male activist groups to stop these catastrophes from happening ? smarten up men, were getting played like imbeciles grow a damn brain.

    Tip to all rich entertainers and athletes OR ANY MAN ON THE PLANET period. DON’T GET FUCKING MARIED DUMMIE……….EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER…..YOU STUPID BASTARDS, THE ONLY POSSIBLE GENDER TO GAIN FROM MARIAGE IS THE FEMALE, WHY ARE MEN SO RETARDED AT CERTAIN THINGS ? THEN WHEN YOU GET MARRIED THE PUSSy STOPS ANYWAY WITCH IS THE ONLY REASON MEN GET MARRIED IN THE FIRST PLACE OR KIDS. Strap on a Dome is another subject.

    Gene Simmons should be giving seminars on the subject.

    • latino heat

      cosign What The ?

      marriage is all bad! my pops lost his shirt when he divorced the bitch he married. (not my mom) she never even held a real job while they were together and the judge still gave her everything. and when my dad asked her why she didn’t leave him sooner she answered “because you didn’t have anything before.”

      there is nothing to be gained from marriage my dudes, please take this advise. i’ve seen the shit 1st hand. these bitches are some cold pieces of work. especially when money gets involved.

      • $ykotic/Don McCaine

        Now now gentlemen. All marriages don’t go through the ignorant sh*t. Even though my ex-wife is a crazy ass woman, we didn’t go through the nonsense. It was as clean split. And I know a good amount of married people hitting 15 plus years of heavenly bliss.

        But I do co-sign that men need to stand up LOUDLY and do something about the child support laws.

        And those house expenses WILL eat a lot of that 51K a month money up.

        • anutha_level

          i can only pray for the same my dude…i’m going through the divorce process AS WE SPEAK, and i can only hope the crazy brawd keeps her end of the bargain up with this clean split shit. pray for me mane…fareal.

  • Gerv

    His best bet is to get a real hitman and get rid of that bitch.I’m talkin about a good one like in that movie “Hitman” with dude with the barcode on the back his head.

  • iliveonce1

    You think dropping an album called NIGGER AND SAYING ALL THAT ACTIVIST STUF don’t have something to do with it your wrong….

    Nas got hit hard because of what he stands for.

    I’m sure that was talked about in court and on that alone the judge made his decision….

    Kelis knows she’s wrong….because she waited until she was pregnant..even if nas cheated…..which she doesn’t know she had sex tapes..i would put out a hit on her…(just playing) but Karma is real..when the kid grows up….he will be nas’s payback…..he’ll see through it..like he’ll say “daddy why did Mommy divorce you and vice versa” and nas will say ” well son it’s hard but your mom lied about her past and was deceitful” your mom made a sex tape and i asked her about it..” that alone will taint his perspective towards her…..

    i would appeal again

    • DetroitDraper

      Its sad but so true…I dont really think there’s anymore marriage worthy girls out here anymore. They’ve grown up during this bs “New Age” and all if not most values are lost…Id love to settle down and begin my lineage but who’s worthy? Surely not a bitch who talkin about her milkshake smh

      MAYN HOL’UP

  • Caino

    Damn, those Cali laws get them everytime!!

  • http://www.myspace.com/slotchmusic ms_spittuh

    Why in the fuck won’t Nas take this shit to the Supreme Court?

  • Fireforreal

    That bitch will get hers watch. How Fucked up is this world when Nas who makes good money is paying more in support than Diddy,50 and Russell simmons when they all make more doe then him? This is why rappers and black athletes are never trying to get married.

Man I want to move out 2 cali when I get my money right…best believe I’m not gettin married there tho. Dat judge crazy talkin bout 44k wasnt enuff?!?!…If I was Nas I would put a hit on his foolish ass! Man these laws are not in a mans favor when it comes 2 divorce/child support. Kelis better get off that sloppy ass of hers & get to making that milkshake fresh again & get back into the studio making music…lazy ass SMFH!!
