In court documents filed Wednesday, the “Milkshake” singer is asking to modify their existing child support agreement. Kelis, 38, said Nas is making much more money now since the child support judgement was filed in 2012. The couple has one son, Knight.
According to that agreement, Nas currently pays $8,000 per month in child support. Kelis said she will submit a specific child support calculation once a forensic accountant determines how much her ex is now earning.
“The child support order in this case has been in place since our son was approximately 3 years old,” Kelis said in her declaration. “He is now 8 years old. His needs and expenditures have materially changes since the Judgment has been entered. I am informed and believe that Respondent’s income today would support a child support order in excess of $8,000 per month.”
Kelis, who is also asking Nas to pay for child care expenses and for the rapper to pay no less than 50 percent of their son’s healthcare costs. She is also asking for the cost of attorney’s fees.
Nas and Kelis separated on April 20, 2009 after nearly five years together. Both are scheduled to appear for a court hearing on the matter on April 4.
