According to TMZ, the Queens rapper has been ordered to pay $47,249.42 in back child support and $40,454 in back spousal support.

In addition, Nas must to pay $10,000 per month in spousal support until he pays off the $299,015.50 he owes Kelis - as determined by the judge.

Finally, the emcee is also tasked with paying 90% of Kelis' legal fees, totaling $155,787.28, and must cover $48,549.83 in her accounting expenses.

    wow... just wow... I would appeal... or something. There's no way she needs THAT much money! Real hip hop below.... real talk http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BdylMPXtisY

    I hate this happened to him too, but he knew the chances of this happening were in favor of losing some money in the end. Marriages in Hollywood have a far worst success rate. Also, Russell Simmons, 50 Cent (not ever married) and Diddy, just to name a few, all have to pay child support. It is stupid to me personally, because the reasons for the divorces can't be proven usually. And, these men have more money, so shouldn't they have the child. It's a boy, who needs a man in their life to model after, not a woman-when it comes to learning gender appropriate social normalcy. But, I think the justice system is sexist in child custody cases still. It is yet believed that women raise children better. I believe it can be done just as well by men, especially if God blessed them to not have to work 5 days a week. Nas is smart and already has a girl, who I believe he raised. So, even his prior shouldn't have stood in his way. Yall, that is the law when there is no prenupt in N.Y. If one spouse is paid up, then they will pay. I mean, even white people have to pay, he had good lawyers who probably reduced the damage to his pocket books by far. Umm, Britany Spears and Jessica SImpson, for example paid their spouses. Alright, I hope I didn't come off as too nerdy, but I had to inform some. God Bless.

      Do your homework...Most "intellectually, well-read" people have a hard time conveying what they want to articulate. Remember, if it's easily articulated, it probably means it was not worth "listening-to"!!!

This vindictive nature is a path chose by most females who claim to be good home grown women! -NOT! Anyway, whatever the case, dude, don't deserve this kind of bullshit! Man is it obvious by now that Nas didn't lay a hand on her - man, I would have slide her throat and stomach and threw her over the Hudson for this bullshit! Didn't this broad just get a new contract with her album due out July 15,10. "Wicked gurl is durty, ya hear!!!"

  • crazypee81

    get the fuck out here u know damn well when u get urself involved with an entertainer there is a 70% chance he or she is gonna cheat on u. Comes with the territory. Kelis dont act like u aint know. 2nd thing this bitch wasnt shit in the United States but overseas this bitch was getting scrooge mcduck money i mean ppl in europe,japan, and places in Africa went stupid crazy for Kelis. Dont know why. Where the fuck all that money went 2 for her greedy ass to want so much money from nas. Bitch its called child support. Your son is approx 1yrs old wtf. Kelis has money of her own what spousal support this bitch needs. Judge is grimey for he/she to determine nas has to pay legal,acct fees. WATEVA HAPPEN TO BEING REASONABLE. Where the fuck was pre-nup? Something tells me Nas has a secret stash somewhere on some remote island cause he taking this shit just lil 2 lightly. I would of spazzed out and did a Dexter Morgan on that bitch.

  • hypestyles

    Nas apparently had a bum legal team, if that's the end result he ended up with.. oh, well.. He needs some pitbull attorneys who can pull off some appeals and get those fees reduced.

  • Ah hell

    It's cheaper to keep her, but divorce is worth it. But damn, these amounts of money are fucking ridiculous. I feel the Judge had a personal vendetta or something against Nas. This is complete bullshit. Kelis a perfect example of a parasite towards men.

  • Megan Fox Lover

    Damn, this nigga Nas stay steady losing! nigga cant catch a break since back when!! ok, il quote Jay-Z from 'The Takeover', "Smarten up Nas" You dont marry a man-hating-thirsty-feminist-(closet dyke?) like Kelis!!! Once shes gotten what she wants (a child) she's dumping ur ass like hot iron. This nigga Nas fell in love. Big mistake!!!!! now the bitch is milking you 4 all your worth!!!! Sorry son. hold ur head up. Jay Z style. BROOOOOOOOOOKLYN

  • shabaz(NAIJA BOY)

    Wow! Kelis is a damn Bitch...Its painful dis shit is still happening...they want to break Nas, but they can never succeed....am expecting a new video(single) from Distant Relatives anytime soon

  • Lee Majors

    • amaru

      gtfoh faggot. nas has 3 classic n countless dope albums

    • Ah hell

      Co sign LOL.. She doesn't want anything less than Prada. Fuckin' parasite... Fuck your milkshake.

    • lol..

      really homie? those numbers look right to you? that ONE YEAR OLD kid needs like 1/10 of the money Kelis is robbing Nas for to live comfortably. pretty sure Nas wants to handle his responsibilities as a father, but instead he's payin for this bitches shopping trips. I have a feeling this judge doesn't like rap music...

  • ImFromDaSouth 239/404

    It's cheaper to keep her!! Bitches got it made and the system is design to benefit bitches like this. Spousal support, bitch you grown, take care of your damn self. That's y he should have had that bitch working instead of sitting on her ass depending on him. Shit always back fire on the nigga. These days prenuptial- agreements are necessary especially if you well off before u get married fuck that love and trust shit. That shit dont mean shit when shit hits the fan. Nigga got enough chedda to get custoday and take care of his on son, give that bitch visitation rights since she the one in need..

  • knowledge24

    *deep breath* i thought i was going to have to off this bitch myself but nas can afford it... he's worth like 17-30 million(surprised me too)... im praying for God's son because the powers that be are definitely trying to get him back for making that "nigger" album and the revolutionary stand he's taking nowadays... Hip hop needs Nas!!!

  • Rachael5922

    How come anytime your about to do something with Distant Relatives this crap comes around? I HAVE been actually trying to learn about African issues and I HAVE posted a few threads about these issues IN HIP HOP COMMUNITIES and then I have to read this, this is garbage, this is not even hip hop news, this needs to be on TMZ or some crap like that, i am so sick and tired of hip hopdx calling itself a hip hop source and then it posts garbage, next thing i will have to read is what Lil Wayne has for breakfast at Rykers, YOU SUCK. I could write massive stories around this crap! UNORIGINAL GARBAGE!

  • mobguy

    It really is'nt a child support thing. It's yet another set up by the local authorities. That racsist judge wants to silence this brother by tearing a family apart, but people are just to dam blind to see it

    • mobguy

      Any person with any kind of sense can see these amount of figures are not neccessary to support a child. You might wonder will this create a big gap or lack in another earea of the chids life thanks to this judge

    • icu ucme

      So, the judge made Kelis file for divorce. GTFOH! In my personal opinion, Nas did one to many things to that bitch and she got fed up. Period.And you have to understand the bitch was pregnant when she filed. So if you've ever impregnated a woman, you would know how crazy one could be. I am not defending her at all, just saying that the bitch got mad and saw how lucrative divorce is and ran with it. This Is Typical Woman Shit. Kelis thinking to herself/talking to a girlfriend- "Oh, oh this nigga going to cheat on me while I'm pregnant with his baby!" as flames come out of her nose."OK, watch.", as she calls her attorney.

  • c/gaddic

  • Geno The King of Godz

    LMAO. The justice system is so broken it isn't funny. Nas has to pay this skeezer of a bitch upwards of half-a-mil?! Kelis garbage ass records don't sell, and does a pretty stand up nigga dirty, and she gets mad money for it. Unbelievable. This is some outrageous shit, and this judge's head is up his has...or maybe in Kelis's pussy. Hold ya head Nas. Hip-Hop may not be completely dead, but Morality is.

  • bastereds

  • imdoingME

    Damn I understand taking care of ur responsiblities as a father, but fuck that is way too much money for anyone to shell out. Kelis has a new album coming out soon, why cant she support herself and pay her legal fees and have Nas help support their one child! the judge act as if he had 10 kids with her to support. This bullshit judge is asking for Nas to pay half a million dollars. I dont dislike Kelis but she was never the one for Nas. Nas is probably playing her track I Hate You So Much Rite NOW, AHHHHHH!!! LOL.
