Nas ordered to pay Kelis $44,000 a month in child support for baby born Wednesday

According to the AP, a Los Angeles judge demanded that rap star Nas pay $44,000 in monthly child support payments to his estranged wife, Kelis, who gave birth to their son, Knight, yesterday. Kelis, a singer best known for her hit, "Milkshake," delivered the boy in a New York hospital. She filed for divorce from Nas last April and the two have been haggling over child support payments for months.

      shes trash, nothin’ but a gold-diggin’ ass b word. she had one hit song.

      • tra

        Kelis has her own money, so that hardly stands. and she has had multiple hit songs, so next time you comment, make sure your factual. Also this has nothing to do with her music

    Keep in mind that the child support can increase by the “add-ons” of child care, medical expenses, etc.
    May have been “cheaper to keep her…”

    That’s almost as much as I make in a YEAR! No way does it take that much money to raise a kid, especially when she’s still getting royalties from “Milkshake.”

    I guess JLo was wrong, love does cost (44,000 things)!

    Just goes to show how out of touch with reality the American child support system is. Money does not replace a parent!!!

  • Sparky

    that was some good Milkshake…LMAO

    child support doesn’t replace a parent. it is to financially support the child (yes, the child) and this was a judge’s decision based on the income of the non-custodial parent. people need to stop acting like women are just out to get men.

  • mad

    he is a sorry a** man if you ask me . he knew she was having his baby and he desires every thing he gets. he was just being plan stupid

    • naslover

      How is he stupid? And it’s deserves, not desires. The only thing he deserves is quality time with his child.

    women are out to get men

  • Independent my A#$

    @real & mad…So what about (this) child is so special that it takes $44,000 a month to raise it can someone explain that, and dont give me no medical expenses or lifestyle because I know children getting $600.00 a month and they are very well taken care of not to mention the things a father buys excluding child support thats real excessive no matter how much you make and although Nas did wrong robbing your childs father of his money is tacky and people who do that are sad & disgusting freeloaders & leeches…SMDH…

  • john

    only in america….
    women should be treated like the dirt they are.
    they can’t earn so they go rob it from men who earned it.

    1) Women are not out to get men. There are women that pay child support too. No its not as frequent as men but it does happen 2) Yes child support is suppose to be for the CHILD but we know everybody that receives child support doesnt use every bit of that for child support only. 3) I dont care how much nas makes, or what he did or whatever, it doesnt take 44,000 to take care of that child. It may take that much to take care of your child, the childs clothes and food and shelter and car and trips to the nail salon and hair salon and lunch with the friends and trips to europe….i think ya’ll get my point.


    Child support is nothing but PUNISHMENT for men because “he doesn’t want you anymore”!!!!! Everyone who gets pregnant knows how to get pregnant & how NOT got get pregnant. IF you are not doing everything in your power trying NOT to get pregnant, then you ARE trying to get pregnant. So any women who gets pregnant, should be ready for the consequesnces of her actions and not blame the man for a situation SHE CONTROLS! Can’t afford a kid,,,keep your legs closed!

  • stev

    childsupport is the most dumbiest law the goverment has ever made . you know what about trying to build better famlies and good relationships between the child and father and they want is the money and if you dont got take your butt to jail see ya when i see ya is what the mother says.
