Nas -- I Don't Make What Kelis Thinks

7/13/2009 2:43 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Nas -- I Don't Make What Kelis ThinksNas has fired back in his bitter divorce case with Kelis claiming he's paid her more than she says and he makes less than she thinks.

For starters, Kelis claims Nas raked in $11 million for his album deal. Nas fired back in legal papers, "I did not receive even half that amount"... claiming it's more like $4 mil. Nas claims his income is declining, and he's only pulling in $147,165 a month.

As for what he spends ... $71,371.96 a month, which includes $10,000 a month in clothing/hair/toiletries/personal effects.

Kelis, who is about to give birth to their child, claims Nas hasn't paid a penny for child or spousal support since he left her. Nas, who says he wants to be "fully involved" in the parenting of their child, claims he's agreed to pay $350 for a stroller, $450 for a baby sling and $1,598 for two cribs.

Nas thinks $5,000 a month is reasonable for child support since the kid will just be a newborn.

#7 You're an idiot. When we write "who are these people?", we aren't actually asking a question. We are implying that these people are worthless. Go back to the corner of your room and rock back and forth in the fetal position, you cretin.

I'm guessing that neither one has thought to set up a college fund. Probably don't think any offspring of theirs would have the intelligence to go to college. Oh, I forgot ... Obama's going to pay for everyone to go to college.

Fools Rush In    

So, a kid should only need half of what he spends on his clothing, shampoo and fragrance for a month?

So, if I decide I need $75 in clothing allowance in my budget per month, I should pay out $37.50 for my kid? Where do I sign up for this program? Hey, if the budget gets a little tight, I can use a coupon and only spend $40 and send the kid $20. Whoohoo, can't wait to start this program for myself.

i do think he should give more money but Kelis is milking it. shes making it out to seem like he left her with nothing but she does have her own money, it may not be as much as him but she isn't poor. she probably wants more money so she can cont. to live a life of luxery. if she gets more money i bet most of it will go to her stuff, not the baby

12. And exactly how much do you think is left of that 150k after taxes? 5k a month for child support is more than fair. If she wants more then let HER help support the child. She should just name the baby "my little meal ticket" and be done.

Since he doesn't really want to personally sacrifice much, she ought to just get a third trimester abortion.

Just comment on the story. why all the racial nonsense?! really its just ignorant. look at winehouse. she's your people. Yuk! besides. Nas should give more money to support his child in the manner he would have been supported had he been a parent in a joint relationship or the only parent.
