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.

44K or 55K a month! That is still a ton of money for 30 seconds of pleasure.

I am HAPPY she got all she wanted! This must be such a victory for her. I was married for 9 years and my husband cheated on me, literally changed the locks on me several times, harassed me out of the house. Stalked me, found my new residence, stole my vehicle and sold it. And has skirted his responsibilities financially. His attitude was JUST like Nas' very much avoidance and egotistical. Not really thinking about the consequences of their actions. I can't WAIT to have my day in court with my ex. At first, all i wanted was my vehicle fully in my name and him out of my life. He ignored the property settlement agreement and sold our mutual property and left me high and dry. The family court system is going to EAT HIM ALIVE and I can't wait! The only type of men that do this to women are men who HATE the woman for whatever reason. It stems from malice and nothing more. Good riddens!

That's what his drunk, stupid ass gets. HA-HA He showed up to the hospital drunk! He acted like an ass towards her for months. If you read carefully it says $55K/month in SPOUSAL SUPPORT AND CHILD SUPPORT.

Marriage is a sham for men. There is no benefit. If you are about to get married, think it over. Don't let your d*ck do your thinking for you.

Good...one more for the babies...now just think how many are without...sad to say...anyway...CONGRATS KELIS AND TO YOUR BABY...ENJOY...although having a baby without a father is hard, from a mother to a mother you can do it...you don't need another child (Nas).

Where is everyone getting Nas not being a father from? He already has said he will take care of the child and he has joint custody of the kid and hes already a father to his daughter. Damn you people just assume something based on a TMZ article which by the way isn't even accurate.

What security is there for men in marriage?
If I cheat on my wife, she gets my kids, 18 years of my income, and half my sh1t.
If she cheats on me, she still gets my kids, 18 years of my income, and half my sh1t.
Why should i get married?
