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.

50. Real men don't act like that. This boy needs a lesson from a man about responsibility.

So you think it is justified for her to ask for a portion of his future earnings because she was married to him for 4 years? His future earners which will be based on his skill, creativity and artistic ability which she in no way contributed to?

Nas has a history of not wanting to pay child support. His ex-lover, Carmen Bryan, the mother of their child Destiny, can attest to that and did so in her book. If Kelis is smart, she'll get a good attorney to avoid the run around. But what can you expect from a man who proudly wears a shirt with the word "N*****" emblazoned on it. He's telling you exactly what he is and how he rolls.
