Singer-turned-culinary connoisseur Kelis, who is reportedly being paid $8K a month in child support from Nas, wants even more based on her ex’s finances that spilled online amid their bitter battle over child custody.
According to the court documents, the legendary Illmatic wordsmith earns $175K a month, with $76,834.04 appropriated to various family members including his father and rent.
Nas also listed $8 million in cash, which is the basis for another contentious court battle between the two celebs.
Twitter, predictably, lost its mind when it learned Nas’ finances and Kelis’ positioning for more of his earnings.
Check out what Black Twitter had to say.

Nas needs to get his bread up and just give Kelis royalties to Illmatic, as crazy as that sounds lmaoooo. But I don’t understand how Kelis ain’t breaded up with a multi platinum album
