Nas appears to be having a really hard time paying that $50,000/mo in child support and alimony to his soon-to-be ex wife Kelis, whose lawyer claims that the rapper is $200,000 behind on payments. And the judge presiding over the case believes that Nas is ignoring court orders. But his lawyer says he needs a little time to get his paperwork together to prove that he can’t pay all of that money.

Judge David S Cunningham III, who is overseeing the divorce proceedings, said it was starting to look like the rapper is trying to evade court orders. One of Nas’ attorneys, Anthony Ukran, told Cunningham the rapper needs more time to prepare his defence and show he is unable to pay the court-ordered support amounts.


Nas pleaded not guilty to charges of missed payments and Judge Cunningham ordered the 36-year-old rapper to appear in court in March to answer to more charges relating to his nasty divorce case.
