Nas Gets Child Support and Spousal Support in Divorce From Kelis Cut in Half

Nas just had his child and spousal support obligations sliced in half, but he still has to pay ex-wife Kelis a pretty penny ... TMZ has learned.


According to legal docs filed in L.A. County Superior Court, Nas must now pay a tad over $5,000 a month in child support and $20,000 a month in spousal support.

It sounds like a lot, but Nas was paying twice that until he convinced the judge the bad economy has even hit the rap biz hard.

So this month, Nas pockets an extra $25k for himself.

One love.
