Nas has been ordered to pay his ex-wife Kelis close to $88,000 in back child support and spousal support, according to TMZ.
The ruling came down today (April 12) when Nas appeared in L.A. County Superior Court. The exact amounts he owes to Kelis are $47,249.42 in child support and $40,454 in spousal support.
In addition, Nas has to pony up $10,000 in spousal support each month until his $299,015.50 debt to Kelis is paid off. The rapper is also responsible for 90% of Kelis’ legal fees, which total $155,787.28, as well as her $48,549.83 accounting bill.
The former hip-hop couple has been battling it out in court ever since Kelis filed for divorce in April 2009 while pregnant. The singer gave birth to their son, Knight, in July.
Nas’ money woes don’t stop there. The rapper is reportedly facing an IRS debt of more than $3 million.
