Nas to Pay Kelis $44K Per Month

by at . Comments

Things are looking up Kelis. A day after welcoming a baby boy, the singer was awarded nearly $44,000 in monthly support from her ex Nas at a hearing Thursday.

That's enough to cover more than half her $80,000 in expenses! Go, Kelis!

The "Milkshake" provider filed for divorce from the rapper in April while she was seven months pregnant. Nas, who was not there as she welcomed son Knight in NYC, had initially asked a court to deny Kelis any spousal support.

He then proposed paying Kelis a one-time payment of $20,000 until the judge could settle on an appropriate spousal and child support amount at a later hearing.

Nas' income is $147,000 a month.

Unsympathetic Nas wanted Kelis to fend for herself.

But on Thursday, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Louis Meisinger rejected the offer, stating that new mom Kelis needed more money to accommodate her life.

Contacted by Us Weekly after the birth of Knight on Thursday, Kelis' rep said: "The beautiful baby boy and his mother are doing wonderful."
