Judge Grants Nas' Request to Reduce Child Support Payment

January 8, 2011 (3:06 am) GMT
The child support paid by Nas for his son Knight will now sit at around $5,000-a-month after his plea to reduce the payment was granted by judge.

A judge has granted ' request to have his child support payments to ex-wife reduced by half. The hip-hop supercouple split in April, 2009 after four years of marriage, with divorce papers filed just months before the singer gave birth to the pair's son Knight.

The divorce was granted in May, but they continued to thrash out the details of the settlement. Shortly before the union was officially dissolved, the rapper filed a request asking for his $10,000-a-month child support payments to be reduced, and a judge at Los Angeles County Superior Court has now granted his wish.

The payments for Knight will now sit at around $5,000-a-month, while Nas will also pay Kelis approximately $20,000-a-month in spousal support, according to TMZ.com.
