KELIS & NAS: Rapper Nas and R&B singer Kelis wed in July 2005 and had a short-lived reign as one of hip-hop’s royal couples. Despite being pregnant at the time with Nas’s son, Knight, Kelis filed for divorce in April 2009, citing “irreconcilable differences.” Their divorce was finalized in May 2010 amid nasty disputes over spousal and child support payments, which  reports claim that  Nas was required to pay $51,000 per month. According to documents filed in L.A. County Superior Court in April 2010, Nas had to pony up nearly $90,000 in back child support and back spousal support. The judge also ordered Nas to pay $10,000 per month in spousal support until he paid off $300,000 he owed Kelis. Nas also had to pay more than $200,000 in Kelis’ legal fees and accounting expenses.
