Nas Ordered To Pay Kelis $51,101 Per Month
A judge has ordered rapper Nas to pay his estranged wife Kelis $51,101 a month on Wednesday. Read more on Nas’ hefty alimony and child support payments below.
The ruling from the judge came after two days of testimony on the musicians in which they both were portrayed to be strapped for cash. Nas has paid Kelis almost $40,000 every month since July.
Los Angeles Superior Court Judge David S. Cunningham III listened to the testimony on their finances and record deals and made his ruling. Both Nas and Kelis made an appearance in court and both testified.
Although the $51,101 sounds really bad, Nas’ lawyer said his client actually will benefit from the change. Nas will not have to pay the $13,000 a month for their Los Angeles home.
Kelis lives at her Los Angeles home with their infant son,Knight, and has installed recording equipment at the house.
