Nas to Kelis: Pay Your Own Damn Way

5/20/2009 3:12 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

NASNas, one of the biggest and richest rappers around, does not want to pay his estranged, pregnant wife, Kelis, a penny in spousal support.

Kelis filed for divorce April 30. She's weeks from giving birth and unable to work, but no matter to Nas -- he's filed his response to the divorce, asking the judge to deny her the spousal support she's seeking. For bad measure, he also wants her to pay her own lawyer's fees.

Nas and Kelis both want joint custody of their unborn child.

Kelis cites "irreconcilable differences" for the divorce, but we're told she believes he was cheating on her and that's what buzz-killed the marriage.

Dang punks Nas will do his part for the BABY!! He just aint gonna give Kelis no EXTRA money, she got her own and he got his own. So when Nas takes the baby with him for the week, should she give him money too!! If they do joint custody, i guess that means Kelis got to give Nas 20,000 right back, then the baby goes with the Kelis and he have to give her 20,000 back again!!! Whatever!!!! Nas just continue to do your thing, love ya!!

I guess nobody can read anymore, it doesn't say anything about Nas not wanting to pay child support, it says spousal support. As in he doesn't want that golddigger to take money she didn't earn for herself, he's perfectly willing to pay child support and have joint custody. Read the article before you make retarded comments.
