It was reported last month that Nas was ordered to pay more than than $87,000 combined in both back child support and back spousal support. In addition, Nas was ordered to pay $10,000 a month to ex-wife Kelis in spousal support, and an undisclosed amount in monthly child support.

Now, TMZ reports that the judge predicated the order based on the assertion that Nas makes $152,031 a month.

In response, Nas has said he makes “substantially less than that amount.”

The rapper’s lawyer, Mark Vincent Kaplan, has requested that the judge take another look at the figures, and reexamine the situation.

More on this as it develops.
