Nas and Kelis Officially Divorced

(AllHipHop News) The marriage between rapper Nas and R&B singer Kelis has officially been terminated by a Los Angeles judge. According to, the divorce became official last Friday (May 21st) in Los Angeles County Superior Court. A number of issues remain unsolved, including the amount of custody and spousal support Nas has been ordered to pay Kelis.Earlier this month, Nas filed legal documents claiming that the judge based the amounts he must pay on him earning $152,000 a month, which the rapper says is “substantially less than that amount.”In April, Nas paid over $87,000 in back spousal and child support to Kelis, in addition to the $10,000 a month he was ordered to pay going forward. Nas and Kelis married in 2005 during a ceremony in Atlanta after a two year relationship. In 2009, Kelis filed for divorce citing irreconcilable difference. The rapper has accused Kelis of preventing him from seeing the birth of their son Knight in July of 2009, who was born just as the divorce proceedings started. He also publicly accused Kelis of putting him through “hell” just to see his child during the divorce proceedings.
