11.03.09 ---- Despite recent appearances together, Nas’ divorce from singer Kelis continues on.
TMZ.com reports that Nas’ lawyer Mark Vincent Kaplan filed court papers Monday (November 2), seeking to block Kelis’ request for $72,728 a month in spousal support.
Nas had been ordered to pay Kelis $44,000 in child support payments in addition to a one-time payment of $45,000 toward attorney fees and forensic accountant.
In August, Kelis’ attorney Laura Wasser later filed a motion seeking to increase the amount to $72,728 in income based on the $240,000 the rapper earns per-month.
In addition, she sought $17,225 a month in child support, $29,522 in back child support and retro spousal support in the amount of $281,571.
Kelis gave birth to their Knight in July of 2009. After six years of marriage, she filed for divorce from Nas in April, citing irreconcilable differences.
In September, the pair were seen together at New York hotspot Marquee and other events, sparking rumors that the reconciliation might be possible.
