Rapper Nas claims that he would like to be "fully involved" in his yet to be born child's life. According to TMZ, the rapper has already agreed to pay $350 for a stroller, $450 for a baby sling and $1,598 for two cribs to the mother of his unborn child, singer Kelis. In addition, Nas wants to pay $5,000 in child support, an amount which is far below the $20,000/month that Kelis is requesting.
Kelis claims Nas raked in $11 million for his album deal. Nas fired back in legal papers, "I did not receive even half that amount"... claiming it's more like $4 mil. Nas claims his income is declining, and he's only pulling in $147,165 a month.
As for what he spends ... $71,371.96 a month, which includes $10,000 a month in clothing/hair/toiletries/personal effects.
Kelis, who is about to give birth to their child, claims Nas hasn't paid a penny for child or spousal support since he left her.
Nas thinks $5,000 a month is reasonable for child support since the kid will just be a newborn(TMZ.com)
