Nas and Kelis have finally made their split official. According to TMZ, the former couple’s divorce papers were filed last Friday (May 21) in Los Angeles County Superior Court.
Although their marriage is over, the ex-lovers still have to finish their battle over child and spousal support. As previously reported, Nas was forced to pay more than $47,000 in back child support and more than $40,000 in back spousal support in a settlement reached this past April. 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.
The Queensbridge 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.
Nas plans on fighting the settlement because the judge’s ruling was made in consideration of an income of $152,031 a month that he says is much higher than his what he actually earns. —Brooklyne Gipson
