Once Nas and Kelis worked out their custody agreement, I assumed that they would be out of the court system for a while. But it looks like that’s not going to be the case. According to TMZ, Kelis just filed legal documents requesting additional child support from her ex husband and the father of her child, rapper Nas.
Nas currently pays $8,000 a month in support of their 8-year-old son Knight. But Kelis argues that Nas is further along financially than he was five years ago when they came to an agreement on the $8k sum.
Since she believes he’s doing better financially, she would like for him to contribute to their son’s expenses.
Kelis didn’t specify a new sum for child support but she did outline what the additional funds would be allocated.
She’s requesting that Nas contribute 50 percent of school-related expenses, 50 percent to child care needs and 50 percent to unreimbursed health care.
The judge has yet to rule on Kelis’ request.
