New mom Kelis is seeking more in child and spousal support for her and her four-week-old son, Knight Jones. Though she was awarded more than $40,000 in combined child and spousal support last month, Kelis is asking the court to grant her additional income from her estranged spouse Nas.
According to documents filed by Kelis’ lawyer, Laura Wasser, rapper Nas earns $244,826 a month, while Kelis makes just $13,744 a month. Therefore, Kelis is asking for $17,225 a month in child support and $72,728 in spousal support. She’s also asking for retroactive child support of $29,522 and spousal support of $281,571.
Nas and Kelis are scheduled to appear in court in September.
BCK Says: If the court agrees to Kelis’ request, she will get $89,953/month in combined support. Do you feel that this amount is too much?
