Nas Owes Kelis Mortgage, Spousal Support Payments

In recent months, Nas’ problems with his ex-wife Kelis have become well publicized. There have been issues relating to the divorce as well as child and spousal support. Apparently, on top of all of that, Nas owes mortgage payments on Kelis’ house.

According to TMZ, the Queensbridge MC is behind $52,989.22 in payments for the home where Kelis lives. In order to catch up to the amount that he should have paid by now, Nas will be paying nearly double what he normally would per month—a shade over $14,000, rather than a shade under $8,000. The heightened payments will end after seven months or if the two sell the house, which they are attempting to do. Nas also owes an initial $17,500, according to the legal document obtained by TMZ.

Also revealed in the document is that Nas owes just over $299,000 in spousal support.

In related news Nas and Damian Marley’s collaborative effort, Distant Relatives, came in on the charts at No. 38 this week, having sold nearly 125,00 copies since it’s release. —Adam Fleischer

    Man…. I think Nas is just fuckin’ with shorty. He definitely has the cake to pay. I don’t really see why he just doesn’t pull a “Marvin Gaye” moment. Why doesn’t he just put out an album and dedicate all proceeds to her and be done with her? That recent joint he put out would have been a perfect way to write shorty off. It definitely didn’t sell that much (although i think it is a classic). This chick is out for straight aggravation and annoyance. Just get out of her life with an album write-off. Nas is a God emcee. He will definitely not miss the cake. He has at least 3 or 4 more albums in him before he can call it a wrap. Give this Gold Digger some fake gold on a compilation and write her off. Real talk.

IF HE WAS IN NEW YORK WHERE HE BELONGS THEN THIS TYPE OF SHIT WOULDNT HAPPEN TO HIM! AS FOR KELIS YOU MONEY HUNGRY NO TALENT BITCH YOU SHOULD KEEP IT REAL INSTEAD OF BEING THIS MONEY GRUBBING WHORE! AND IF THE WOMEN DONT LIKE THIS THEN FUCK YOU TOO! FAIR IS FUCKEN FAIR!

  • Malik

    Unless Nas’ kid has a medical disorder where he needs to eat diamond encrusted frosted, he doesn’t need to pay 14k a month.

  • capcobra

    nas lyrics makes nas seem smart but his actions prove he’s stupid.

  • Anonymous

    Damn NaS better start stepping his game up. Back to Illmatic kid!!!

  • The1987Kid

    I see on every hip-hop site its a FUCK NAS type of thing ive been noticing it for 3 years now im starting to get suspicious every since he made that Nigga album its been alot of person shots at Nas especially from these mainstream hip-hop sites like XXL & All Hip-Hop, now if this was Eminem in this situation it will be nothing but “all we feel bad for you Em Kim’s a bitch” etc but i actually have dudes defending Kelis like some super save-a-hoe type of attitude to the situation knowing she is wrong everybody make mistakes but its like people are going overboard with this its an everyday thing to me. So i think its something more deeper going on cause Nas has always been a private person even now but its like a target on his back every little thing he does it gets blown up & people let TMZ & Hip-Hop weekly tear this man down. He is one of our last real voices in hip-hop we need to make sure them outside forces thats not hip-hop bring down this man…

      What’s up 1987Kid?

      I don’t think it’s mostly fuck Nas. In fact, I think the fans want to see Nas finally win, but get frustrated when he makes avoidable mistakes. Kinda like a ‘tough love’ situation. There are tons of Kelis’ here in Detroit (you wouldn’t believe it) and the bs gets old real quick.

      Nas, ftw!!

    Damn!! NaS better step his game up. Back to Illmatic kid!!!

    Fuck Kelis. Trife ass hoe.

  • http://jamal7mile.blogspot.com Jamal7Mile

    I still can’t believe any judge in America would OK that bullshit divorce settlement. Russell Simmons don’t pay that much per month! I just can’t believe it! I’ve NEVER seen anything like it! Why wouldn’t Nas have that shit appealed or modified?

    It’s like THAT in California???

    • DV8

      “It’s like THAT in California???”

      Yeah and the crazy shit about it is that they didnt even live in CA. She moved out to Cali to file. That should be against the law or something. Basically dont get married in Cali and if your holdin something (where ever you are) strongely consider a iron clad pre nup.

    damn nas. My favorite rapper too. I feel him though, just when you think the bitch you like is the one, she turns out not to be the one!!!

  • S-Double

    I’m riding with Nas. If you don’t like Nas, you don’t like hip-hop. “Distant Relatives” is a classic. Support real music. Fuck outta here with the hate. It’s like these fools have nothing better to do. Even geniuses have flaws. Some of the greats in history were deeply troubled.

    Can anyone say Ray Carruth? I’m just saying! I don’t advocate violence against women, but no BITCH deserves that type of loot! Come on……….. And by the way…….. last time I checked didn’t that Bitch have a career before she hooked up with Nas!! Bitch get back on your grind and get your own cheddar up! Maybe Milkshake Pt.2???????

  • Tiffiny Elise Shipp

    Nas was a dummie.
    Shouldnt have married the hoodrat!
    And yeah, I agree with dude above, he is washed up and most of his fans gave up on him in 97, 98, lmao

  • Psternum

    In truth Nas was in Love..I guess they both were, however they both have a child together and they both need to be real and honest about the situation for the interest of the child.
    As for Kelis…why she need so much money, as for Nas Distant relatives is a brillant album a straight up classic and that’s me saying that as a Fan and as a School teacher. When was the last time any rapper of superstar status thought about producing something of this nature. This was an album made for the people and not for units. People should purchase the album for that fact alone.
    Alot hip hop stars talk a good game about improving the condition of the human race alone one or two ever seem bold enough to step up.

    KELIS, IF YOU READING THIS. B REAL BITCH, YOUR SON AINT GONNA RESPECT YOU WHEN HE GROWS AND UNDERSTANDS THIS TRIFENESS. SHIT MAKES MY STOMACH TURN. NIGGAS GO TO SCHOOL FOR 4 YEARS AND COME OUT MAKING 50000 A YEAR AND THATS WHAT THIS BITCH GETS A MONTH. CMON SON

    Kelis turn to God and make shit better

    If you people actually read the documents instead of the sensationalizing false headlines you would know that this report is inaccurate. I would think that if people are gone to write about Nas’ financial situation that they would at least have it accurate…and not speculate. But it’s your own people who try to make you look bad. TMZ and the rest of you bloggers are totally sensationalizing Nas’ divorce for your own purpose/headlines. No one probably even bothered to research that Kelis was rewarded the house/mortgage back in Dec of 2009 and that Nas is paying the mortgage in lieu of his alimony payments until the house is sold. But of course “Nas Can’t Afford Kelis’ Home” would be your headline. The more accurate title would be “Kelis Can’t Afford Kelis’ Home” and just a thought: Why would Nas agree to pay almost 20k upfront and double the payments of 7,800k to 14,229k for 7 months until house is sold if it was a case of him not being able to afford the house note? Wouldn’t he just default on the mortgage? Also if the house is not sold by the 8th month Nas agreed to continue paying until the house is sold or until the mortgage payments equal that of the 300k in alimony Kelis was rewarded. As Nas stated in one of his most recent songs ‘Victory,’ “How enormous Nas’ pockets is a pop quiz for gossipers.”

  • 4 real tho

    Rita (Kelis). If you own or claim something be real enough to understand that you have to pay the cost. You make your bed you sleep in it. Don’t teach young sistas to be golddiggers. BE A WOMAN AND HANDLE YOUR BUSINESS..
