Nas Has Child Support Payments To Kelis Sliced In Half

 

Lawyers for Nas must have worked through the holidays because he got his child and spousal support obligations to Kelis sliced in half.  Deets inside....

 

According to TMZ, legal docs filed in L.A. County Superior Court, now say Nas must pay a tad over $5,000 a month in child support and $20,000 a month in spousal support.  That's still a large amount  but it's half of what he was originally ordered to pay. 

How'd he do it?  Nas convinced the judge the bad economy has even hit the rap game.  Well...it's the truth.

 

BONUS:

The man with golden voice, Ted Williams, reunites with his mom after 20 years:

In addition to the Christmas

In addition to the Christmas battle arena for the NBA fans, this same period the market is looking boots. Before World War II as early as Christmas, Nike's three players LeBron, Kobe Bryant and Kevin Durant on the launch of their new boots: Nike Lebron 8, nike zoom Kobe VI Shoes, which James said before his Nike Air Max Lebron 7(VII) even better than Zoom Kobe Bryant VI, I do not know the ultimate "little emperors" superior performance, is not also a sponsor of a feedback it? In the three boots in Durant price of $ 88 shoes, the shoes than the other two players a much lower price, because he did not want expensive shoes, boots the ball is not conducive to sales. Nike Air Max Lebron 8(VIII) most expensive, priced at 160 dollars, and nike kobe vi green grinch shoes priced too high for 130 dollars, then the question arise: Why did Nike Lebron James 8(VIII) than the nike zoom kobe vi grinch shoes 30 to be expensive dollars?

Both good news to hear. Glad

Both good news to hear. Glad Nas got the child and spousal support slashed in half. It was ridiculous from the go and Kelis was wrong for accepting/ asking for that amount. $50,000/ month for child and spousal support is ridiculous even for a star like Nas. GTFOH ! Nas is not making as much money currently as before or even like a few other rappers. Glad for Ted Williams, hope he stays on the right path and keep clean. Very inspiring story.

A lot of people are getting

A lot of people are getting emotional but this is straight dollars and cents. If you have a child with someone, you have to support that child. You can't be living in the lap of luxury and the child is out there with the mama/papa scrounging for food (think Britney Spears and Kevin Federline). The courts' take is that the child is entitled to a certain percentage of your income. Spousal support comes into play because: - they were married, long term I might add. - Kelis makes less than him. - it looks like there was no prenup. Folks, this is what happens when you don't keep your head together when you decide to get married. Let's pray that Alicia Keyes had a prenup. That's one to watch.

I don't have an opinion on

I don't have an opinion on the whole Nas and Kelis fiasco. I can say this, Tatum Moss makes a great deal of sense and I cosign most of her comments regarding that situtation. Especially the part about "the power of what's between the legs". I mean really? Let's do better ladies. I was very touched by Mr. Williams' reunion with his mother after over two decades. Wow, that was just amazing. I'm very happy for that dude, God bless him and I hope all works out well for him. Wasn't he offered a job in broadcasting or radio? Most employers have programs for people with drug problems. I'm sure he is getting the help that he needs.

You know what, umma step out

You know what, umma step out here on this limb with you by saying that KELIS IS GETTING OVER. I know she's laughing all the way to the bank. Now child support is one thing and thanks to the poster below because she really explained Alimony for me in a thorough way. I didnt have an opinion about it before this instance, but this is clearly too much. Now I will be open to thinking that maybe there are some cases when it's called for. I feel like you should take what you came with or build during the course of the relationship. But I will be broad in my approach that there may be sitautions that call for things to work another way. But um, Smh @ Kelis.

WhoGonCheckMeBoo's picture

Alimony/spousal support is

Alimony/spousal support is generally higher than child support because of the differences in the way the two types of support are calculated and the purposes behind the laws creating the support provisions. I will not get into the purposes of the laws, but in terms of calculation: alimony is calculated before child support. Alimony is a non-specific calculation; meaning the final figure is not based on a specific formula, but rather on a set of factors such as need, ability to pay and the marital lifestyle. It is up to the Judge to weigh the factors and determine the actual figure to be paid out. Alimony is considered income to the ex-wife and is therefore taxable. The husband recieves a tax credit for all Alimony paid. Alimony is added to the ex-wife's income from work and deducted from the ex-husband's income from work for child support calculation purposes. Child Support is a specific calculation; meaning in most states there is a predetermined formula or guideline laid out by the state legislature which will lead to the same specific result each time the same figures are entered into the calculation. Contrary to what has been stated here, child support is based on both parties' incomes and not just that of the obligor/paying party as both parties are expected to financially contribute to the child. As the alimony figure will increase the ex-wife's income and decrease the ex-husband's income, there will be less of a descrepancy between the parties' incomes. The child support figure will therefore be less than it would have been if no alimony was awarded This is why you will see higher child support amounts where the parties were never married or married with a prenup excluding alimony versus where the parties were married and alimony was awarded.

I'm married. I have 5

I'm married. I have 5 children because my husband asked me to have his children. I would have been content with just 3. On top of that he does not want me to work, he'd rather me stay home and take care of our children. So I go to school to get all the education I can in case one day (God forbid) my husband can no longer work, OR (God forbid) we get divorced. Now if we ever get divorced do you seriously think I'm not going to ask for spousal support? Yea whatever.....and in Nas/Kelis' case, spousal support is more because it costs more money to take care of the household per month than it does 1 child. If they had more children her child support would have been more but not her spousal support. I don't get why it's so hard to understand that.....

Girl its not hard to

Girl its not hard to understand........you know we got dummies in our community. Work like slave with camp full of kids, no child support, alimony just a dream. They can't and will never understand a man's responsibility. They've never seen it first hand. Daddy was a pimp, crack addict, and street corner hustler. Mama worked 2 jobs, payed all the bills, had the only car in the house. People with common sense, decent education, and high standards or just standards period can understand very clearly how things go down. There is nothing wrong with a woman being independent, having her own, holding a job. But there is something wrong when you forget a man's role.

I know every sitution is

I know every sitution is diff, but there is a diffrence between getting sp/ch support, jus bz cuz a man has a lot of money doesn't mean he has to give u more than u really need to live. My Ex pays ch-support we came upwit an amount 2gether, when i need or 4 camp & Xtra kid stuff he helps. If we went to court it would be wayyyyyy more cuz he has bank, and he works hard, bcuz he has it should it take it. ? Now think U work hard day/night, u marry $ luv and that person leaves & takes 25% women would feel diff if they paid sp/ch support.

Well see that is your

Well see that is your situation and everybody cannot be civil after a divorce, so the courts have to step in and get involved. Alimony is not forever, it is set at a certain amount for a certain time. It is basically to help the women get back on her feet after taking care, raising or having kids by her husband. The courts don't want the ex-wife with the child, to fall into a slump after the divorce.....and why should she? I know you try and make it sound like it's easy to just go and get a job and everything will be alright, but that is not the case with women who have not worked in years and maybe someone who needs to get her skills refreshed. A woman will not get alimony if her husband cannot afford it....period. You nor I know what is in Nas' bank account or what checks he has coming in.....that is for the judge to know and decide. But no judge will just throw a number out of his hat. I never call any woman lazy when she has children to raise, that is a full-time job!

@ Lavish: Who you tellin girl

@ Lavish: Who you tellin girl you hit the nail honey. They will never understand a man's role. Giving a man everything, having his babies and playing that wife role when he haven't even put a ring on your finger. And then wonder why he won't marry you. Like momma said, 'why buy the milk when you can get the cow for free.' You're not supposed to marry a man who can't provide for you. My husband does not want me to work so I can stay home and take care of our children. Why wouldn't I oblige him when I know raising and teaching our children correctly is the most important thing in the world to us. The world will not raise my children. Yea I'm full bodied and capable of having a damn good career but my husband can and does provide very comfortably for us. When a man leaves he's not just leaving those children. A marriage is a commitment. His obligation is not only to the children, it's to his marriage as well. As much as I've sacrificed...chile please, damn right he's paying spousal support. In this day and age and the divorce rate as high as it is I see why people are confused and don't get it. You don't get married with the understanding that if it doesn't work you can always get a divorce. You get married with the intent to stay married and with the understanding that you have to put in work to make it work. Divorce is not supposed to be the norm......

Agreed..... That's why they

Agreed..... That's why they make the point of saying that she is "able to work and make her own money" Like that's not even the point what money she makes... The point is they were married with no prenuptial agreement.. He did whatever he did and now they are divorced so he has to pay.... The ppl on here have never been married, so they don't know that when you are everything is joint between the two parties.... All these babymama's are just mad because they probably get anything.....

Regardless if you are married

Regardless if you are married with a pre-nup or not you should have your own money and in this case it has been proven that she depends on his money for her livelihood. Any man or woman who waits on someone else to pay their way in life is not worth a grain of salt and the income of the person receiving the alimony does matter because if her income was equal to or more than his she would not be in need of spousal support. A short term marriage means short term support you can’t depend on some else forever. When his support is only going toward his child what will she do then?

Hush girl! When you are

Hush girl! When you are married, the money is ONE! The marriage is ONE! You are ONE with your spouse. It's not up to you or me if a woman with a child wants to work during her marriage or not. It's up to her and her husband. When did not working and raising your child or better yet not working when pregnant become obsolete. You women act like head of households. There is plenty of women who don't work while married to raise their kids, and women that do work. It doesn't make that woman any less of a woman. Raising a child or children is a full-time job in itself. More men need to step up to the plate, then some of these kids who are neglected, left at home alone, getting pregnant at an early age, not having any supervision, not checking homework, would have someone watching them and training them to be something------their mother! It's ok to be independent but I sware some of you women are becoming dikes! Kelis is not waiting for nothing, I've seen her on the grind more than Nas. And to clarify your "short term" marriage yipple yapple, a child was born, that changes everything.

This is so far from truth lol. According to old interviews Nas was living with Kelis in her brownstone in Harlem when they first got together lol. She's far from a gold digger or trife. It's funny to me the way ppl spread gossip and ignore facts. Like the fact that he hadn't been paying her CS prior to this, but she's the trife one. The lowered payments also speaks to the fact that there isn't that much of a discrepency in their incomes. Kelis makes almost as much as Nas...that's why the CS is only 5k. If he would have handled his business from jump he wouldn't have had all this happen. All of this coukd have been squared away a year ago.
