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.

@ the poor child

Can you not read. He blatantly said he is going to be fully involved in parenting and the childs life. Stop talking just to be talking and read before commenting. Damn I hate dumbass people. He has another daughter in which he takes care of full time what makes you think he wouldn't take care of this child especially since hes fighting for full custody genius.

TMZ posters have typically learned race relations from their parents and grandparents. White people have always purchased the majority of rap music so you klankids are disgraceful.

Why is she even demanding child support now? The baby isn't even born yet! You can't demand child support for a kid who doesn't exist!

I think $5000 is morth than enough for a newborn. The baby don't need LV & Channel. So if Ms kellis want's to kick it like a rock star, I think she needs to step up to the plate and earn it herself. Don't be a lazy uneducated cow!

You gotta love the way blacks prioritize their finances.

Actually, what I LOVE is the fact that a black kid who started with NOTHING worked hard an is now so successful that he can afford to spend $71,371.96 a MONTH, while you, a WHITE guy/gal who had a world of opportunities, are such a miserable FAILURE that you haven't seen that much money at one time in your entire life. One must chuckle at the irony.

You are desperately trying to convince yourself that blacks are your inferiors, but your perpetually-empty bank account and your relative FAILURES in life give lie to that thesis.

Nas should be ashamed of himself for not owning up to his responsibilites (not as a BLACK man but as a MAN. As someone mentioned, K-Fed has never earned one dime to support HIS kids, yet not a peep from you on that score). Nas should be ashamed for his neglect, and YOU should be ashamed for being so transparently jealous of blacks who are more successful than you. Instead of worrying about how black MILLIONAIRES spend their money, why not -- FOR ONCE IN YOUR FAILED LIFE -- try earning a little of your own (and compared to Nas and other blacks, your earnings will indeed be ... "a little.")

everybody is saying he is cheap and whatnot only giving 5,000 a month. I don't even make that much money in two months! I highly doubt that a newborn baby is going to go through 5gs worth of diapers and formula and other baby things a month. If I got that much money in a month, I could afford a better place, car, bills, and still have cash for myself.
