Nas will keep some $25000 in his pocket each month after a Judge cuts his support payments in half!
In late May last year Nas and Kelis officially divorced after four years of marriage and a year of separation. The Judge ordered Nas to pay $10,000 a month in child support for their just-born son. If that wasn’t steep enough, he was also ordered to pay $40,000 a month in alimony. The Queensbridge-bred rapper will now have to pay $5,000 a month in child support for baby Knight and $20,000 a month to Kelis. After four years of marriage (and two years dating), Nas and Kelis split in 2009 while the R&B singer-turned-disco-diva was seven months pregnant with the pair’s first child. The divorce became final in May 2010 after a bitter battle that seemed to be centered around money. While Nas certainly hasn’t come out on top, the recent news is a victory for the rapper, who from the start of the financial fight, claimed he didn’t gross enough to pay the original $50,000 a month in support.
Happy New Year, God’s Son
