The judge presiding over the child and spousal support battle between Nas and Kelis ruled in favor of the R&B singer in Los Angeles on Monday morning (April 12).
According to TMZ, Nas was forced to pay more than $47,000 in back child support and more than $40,000 in back spousal support. He is also being asked to make $10,000 payments per month in spousal support until he pays off the $299,015.50 he owes Kelis.
If that’s not enough the Queenbridge MC is also expected to pay more than $155,000 for 90 percent of Kelis’s legal fees and more than $48,000 to cover her accounting expenses.
As previously reported, Nas had been having some trouble getting his child and spousal support payments reduced. Last December, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge David Cunningham III raised God’s Son’s monthly support payments to $51,101 after a two-day hearing in court in which Cunningham determined that Nas made enough money in the last several months to increase the sum from the $44,000 he was already paying. —Brooklyne Gipson
