Nas and Kelis

Nas Gets Ethered in Court

A baby boy isn’t the only bundle of joy Kelis received this week. A day after giving birth to her son in New York City, the new mom received a major payday in court.

According to The Associated Press, the child’s father Nas has been ordered by a Los Angeles court to pay nearly $44,000 a month in support.

The judge also ordered the rapper to pay $45,000 to cover costs for Kelis’ attorney and forensic accountant. The payments could be reduced at a hearing scheduled for Sept. 8.

Nas was absent from the delivery room when Kelis gave birth to their son Knight Jones on Wednesday night.
