Kelis Hits Home Run in Court

7/23/2009 4:13 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

 Kelis Hits Home Run in CourtKelis just hit the jackpot in court today -- a judge awarded her a ton of money in her bitter divorce battle with estranged hubby Nas.

A judge decided Nas has to pay Kelis $55,000 a month in combined spousal and child support plus the mortgage on their L.A. residence.

Nas also has to pay Kelis -- who gave birth last night to the couple's only child -- for the baby nurse, prenatal expenses and medical insurance.

The rapper also has to pay $35,000 to his worst nightmare -- Kelis' lawyer, disso-queen Laura Wasser.

stopping stupidity    

HEY IDIOT, NAS IS SHORT FOR NASIR. LOOK IT UP. EBONICS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH HIS NAME JERKOFF. WHY IS IT THAT WHEN YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND SOMETHING AS SIMPLE AS A NAME YOU USE RACIAL INNUENDOS TO TRY AND JUSTIFY YOUR CLEAR LACK OF KNOWLEDGE. AS DIVERSE AS THIS WORLD IS A NAME SHOULD JUST BE A NAME EXCEPT FOR YOURS BECAUSE WE CAN'T USE D!Ck WAD AROUND OUR CHILDREN.

I'm all for the guy having to pay child support but $55,000 a month plus the Mortgage! Isn't the support to help pay the mortgage? Come on...that's a bit much and a nurse!!! Really...They wonder why guys go crazy in family court.

So many ignorant people on TMZ

Nas tried to come to the hospital but she wouldn't let him in

He paid her 2500 a month, if that's not good enough to live on don't know what is 55000 is ridiculous and should be appealed. Don't think he makes that kind of dough anymore since none of y'all have even heard of him and the music industry is declining.

He's always said he wants to be their for his kid so don't know how he is a deadbeat in anyway

Don't believe everything TMZ feeds you!

I don't know who she is but, good for her, and her baby!! All these deadbeats need to be taught a lesson. You can't make a baby then not want to take responsibilty for it. She is married to him, and deserves every penny of it. I hope she can move on with her life, and his money now, and give her infant the best future possible! Screw him!

After all he spends a month on himself, she deserves it!!! I mean come on now they werwe married for how long!!! She finally gets pregnant by him and he doesn't want to take care of his baby!!! HE DESERVES EVERYTHING HE GETS FROM THIS!!!! Even if she did lie about it, I don't see why any man wouldn't want to take care of his seed.

I think court records showed that Nas brings home like 147,000 a month. So oh well. 55k is a bit steep though!
