Nas Pleads Not Guilty to Contempt of Court

Things are not looking good for the Illmatic MC. According to TMZ, Nas appeared in court recently to plead not guilty to charges of contempt of court after his estranged wife Kelis claimed that he hadn’t been paying child and spousal support owed to her.

As previously reported, Nas’ child support payments were raised from $44,000 a month to $51,101 in December of last year. Now Kelis claims that Nas owes her more than $200,000 in unpaid support in addition to attorney fees.

In a new verse on “Strong Will Continue” with Damian Marley, Nas speaks up about his situation with his estranged wife:

“How the hell am I supposed to stay comfy/When I gotta pay child support and alimony monthly?…Sleeping with women so fine/Cheating with women while they husbands’ rushing the 50 yard line/Wondering if this was what my ex was doing the whole time”

A contempt hearing will take place next month. If Nas is found guilty there is a possibility that he may go to jail.

In related news, Nas and Damian Marley are scheduled to play at the 2010 Bonaroo Music and Arts Festival this June along with headliner Jay-Z—Brooklyne Gipson
