Nas to Kelis: No Support for You!

11/2/2009 9:15 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Nas, KelisNas may be loaded, but it makes no difference. He's just filed legal papers asking the judge in his divorce case with Kelis to block her from getting spousal support.

In the papers, filed by his lawyer Mark Vincent Kaplan, Nas is also asking for joint custody of their two-month-old boy.

Kelis is asking for $72,728 a month -- which means they are now exactly $72,728 apart.

Gold Diggers beware    

Why is it women think they are so entitled when they don't contribute to the marrage in the first place. This really only applies to the women who don't take care of the house, they have a maid, they don't take care of the kids, they have a nanny, they don't contribut money, they have a oh ya husband. So what is it that makes them think that when divorced they deserve the same standard of living if all they really did was put out for the guy. What is it the modern wife does now a days to contibute? Once again this dosn't apply to the good wives out there that do, to you mad props, this just isn't one of those cases.

Nas used to make money. If he still has any, it's only cuz it's well invested but it's been awhile since he's had a hit or a movie or clothing. His concerts and appearances are what he has going for him. Kelis KNEW he likes groupies.

OK. First, TMZ, you don't state what state they're divorcing in, or how long they've been married. You need to add important details like that. Really.

Alimony and child support are two separate things, people. The child is entitled to being supported proportionate to both parents' incomes. There is a formula the court uses to determine child support.

To the person who said they can't get their ex to pay support, if it's any comfort, it took me nine years and fifteen trips to family court, but I GOT the LOUSY $24.00 A WEEK my child's father refused to pay. As a matter of fact, she's 25 now, and just this year the payback through the national database stopped. Don't ever let that cheap bastard off the hook. Hunt him down and make him pay for his child. You have to pay and do all the work, don't you? He should AT LEAST pay, too.

And to Nas and Kelis, please don't reproduce again. You're clogging up the courts, and the last thing we need are more children of broken families.

Glad he finally told this gold digger she isn't getting a dime. For you illiterate people out there, shes asking for spousal support not child support...two very different things. She wants Nas to take care of her. She needs to get off her ass and go get a job.

A baby needs to be with his mother. A baby needs child support. A newly divorced mother who recently gave birth, which they both benefit from, needs some support to stay home with the kid for a while and then get someone to take care of it when she's working. That's why a woman is "entitled". You can't marry someone, make her pregnant, and throw her out without a cent. That's not cool, and hopefully not legal.

Where are u people getting crack from? OoOo because she's black. Her/his baby deserves to have the same lifestyle he/Nas has. I don't believe in spousal support but I think the appropriate amount for child support should be really thought out by the courts. He shouldn't be living it up while his kid lives mediocre. Stop being racist, woman bashing pigs.
