Rapper has pleaded not guilty to contempt of court amid allegations he failed to pay child and spousal support to his estranged wife . The "Milkshake" singer filed for divorce from Nas in 2009, just months before giving birth to their son Knight in July.

The former couple has since been embroiled in a bitter divorce battle, prompting Kelis to file a contempt motion against the rapper, alleging the 36-year-old rapper is failed to support his family financially. At a court hearing on Friday, February 19, Kelis' lawyer accused Nas of owing more than $200,000 in child and spousal support and attorney's fees.

Nas' attorney entered a not guilty plea on the rapper's behalf. A contempt hearing is scheduled for March, reports TMZ.com.
