Nas to Kelis: I Can't Afford You!

5/5/2010 6:43 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Nas claims he can't afford to pay Kelis the child and spousal support ordered by the court.

As we first reported, a court ordered Nas last month to pay more than $87,000 in back spousal and child support.  The judge also ordered Nas to pay Kelis $10,000 a month in spousal support to stay current.  It's unclear how much Nas is required to pay in monthly child support.

Nas says in the new legal docs obtained by TMZ ... the judge predicated the order on Nas making $152,031 a month, but the rapper says he makes "substantially less than that amount."

Nas' lawyer, Mark Vincent Kaplan, is asking the judge to take another look at the damage to Nas' wallet.

Whats the point of saying who are these people? If you don't know who they are or don't want to make a comment about the issue (which is child and spousal support) why feel the need to emphasis that you don't know them. who are you????



Kelis is asking for way to much! You hurt the child more, if you put the father in jail. Hopefully they can come to a mutual agreement that works in the best interest of the child.

I hate when Bozos on here make comments like "who are these people anyway?"
If you don't know who they are than use Google mickey fickey! Every story is not gonna be about Lindsay Lohan or some other inebriated white actor who you are familiar with.

WOW. The courts are removing the power (aka money) from men, and giving it to women! God save us! MEN! Fight your instinct to have relations! All it does it kill us! The system is built to destroy us!

wtf kelis, what is she doin with 50 grand a month go make a album or somethin, and i really hope nas get that payment down to at least 10 grand, a child doesn't need that much money a month, but i forgot its the life style their child is living.

The fact of the matter is that when you date someone that has less then you they always want more of what you have. Now knowing that kelis was a bird he had to know she was gonna eat his bank account dry she had one song and flopped and now she needs that money to live her so called life sytle wow!you was on your way to a cardboard box what lifestyle?

This is definetly a woman who is out to take this guy for every single penny he has got. There is an old song which has the title called " Take time to know her " maybe if NAS had taken the time to KNOW I mean really know this witch, he may have seen this coming.
