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.

How is he a deadbeat?

Cheater, probably but what celebrity ain't, but deadbeat?

He has said from day 1 he wants to be involved, tried to be at the hospital but was denied, and has always been looking forward to his son

Just cuz he didn't give into her crazy demands don't make him a deadbeat. The judge sided with her so he's gonna have to pay now but doesn't in anyway imply he don't want to take care of his kid. A baby don't need that kind of money.

I bet he just woke up from his drunken stuper. That no talent ,uneducated fool didnt deserve the money he earn. I guess the judge saw it that way too. What better way for him to spend it, than on his wife who he screwed over, and his baby. CONGRATULATIONS KELIS, ON YOUR BABY, AND YOUR $$$$ !!!!!!!!!

He was denied entry to the hospital because he was intoxicated. Now is this any way to show up to a hospital to welcome your new son into the world? And, being involved is good, but he was bitchin about not having money to help her with expenses etc. If the judge allot her that much money, it was based on what he makes, there are guidelines and i am sure that is what the guidelines allow....So, Please stop trying to defend this LOSER, he got what he deserved as did Kelis

55K is way outrageous. She simply does not need that kind of money to raise a child. That money is going to her, not the kid. And to people who say he is uneducated, have you ever listened to his music? He has a lot to say about government, religion and life in general. He didn't go to high school, but his vocabulary skills and lyrical ability are probably way out of your league anyway. Good luck to the kid and I hope the greedy mother doesn't get in the way. I mean seriously, you don't think Nas would have pampered the kid in nice stuff already? Cash is going straight into Kelis' greedy ass pockets.

Um, do your homework. Madonna's real name is Madonna, idiot! She was named after her mother and everybody who knows anything about her know it. Madonna Louise Veronica Ciccone., DUMBASS!

Also, whoever said that OJ, Scott Peterson, etc had a right to kill those women, needs to be shot to death for even thinking such a hatred crime against innocence. Laci Peterson and her son (RIP) did ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DESERVE BEINGMURDERED BY SCOTT PETERSON. THAT A$$HOLD CHEATED ON HER. HE SHOULD HAVE KILLED HIMSELF TO END ALL OF OUR MISERY. OJ will burn in hell for what he did. I'm still holding out that one of his kids avenges their mother's murder.

You parents should be so proud that you can say things like that annoynmously on here.
