EXCL Nas Kelis baby shopping 180309

Nas and Kelis were in an LA courtroom today and according to TMZ, Kelis confirmed that she and Nas tried to reconcile back in September but it didn’t work out. “She’s also talking about the difficulty she has earning money — because with a new kid and not a lot of job options outside the music business, it’s tough out there.” (However, Kelis did recently sign to Will I Am’s label).

Nas took the stand to answer charges that he hasn’t been making his payments. He told Kelis’ lawyer that he thought he was up to date. He also asked for overnight visits with his infant son, Knight.

But in the end: “The judge just ordered Nas to pay $40,454 in spousal support and $10,647 in child support. And, Nas must pay disso-queen Laura Wasser’s attorney’s fees, to the tune of $46,022.”

Is that monthly? If so…cha-ching.
