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.

TMZ isn't even reporting the full story. For starters the payments are only temporary and a new hearing will be heard Sept. 8. Tmz also has the amount wrong. Nas has to pay 44,000 a month and thats only until Kelis is able to resume working. Nas and Kelis both have joint custody of the child so far but Kelis is asking for full custody....Damn TMZ get on yall jobs and report correctly.

@ real: STFu you don't even know what hip-hop is so stop talking like you've actually heard hip-hop. You don't have the intelligence let alone the mental capacity to decipher the complexity of elite lyricists like Nas, Lupe Fiasco, Mos Def etc.

If he'd done right ny her and the child from the beginning, I'm sure she would've settled for a lot less. But now he's the @$$! Don't want to be a man and do right by your child? Be an @$$ and let a JUDGE decide! What an idiot! LMFAO!
