Rapper Nas’ wallet will no doubt be feeling lighter today, following the latest ruling in his divorce settlement with ex Kelis.
TMZ report that documents filed in L.A. County Superior Court reveal that the 36 year old star has to immediately pay a sum of $47,249.42 in back-child support and$40,454 in back spousal support to the ‘Milkshake’ singer.
Worse still, the presiding judge further ordered Nas to pay $10,000 a month in spousal support until he pays off the $299,015.50 total he owes Kelis.
Wait there’s more…
Nas also has to pay 90% of Kelis’ legal fees to the tune of $155,787.28, as well as$48,549.83 to cover Kelis’ accounting expenses.
Legal analysts suggest that the rapper could have avoided such financial blows had he settled from the jump; particularly considering the fact that Kelis was repped by hotshot divorce attorney Laura Wasser.
Can you say ‘taken to the cleaners’ or what?! Wow….
