Nas Gets Contempt Charge Dropped, Issues Statement
“All I want to do is make music and raise my kids…”
It looks like Young Escobar might finally be catching a break in his ongoing child support drama against his estranged wife Kelis.
As previously reported Nas was facing a contempt of court charge because he owed Kelis$200,000 in backed child support for their son Knight.
Following that, Nas was ordered to pay a portion of Kelis’ legal fees, accounting expenses and spousal support totaling close to $300.000.
Now luckily for him the contempt charge has been dropped because he’s paid the singer $50,000 in child support.
A spokesman for Nas confirmed to MTV that he was given some leeway in their court proceedings. The spokesman says that the charge was dismissed and that Kelis’ attorney fees and spousal support payments have been taken care of.
“The contempt charges that were filed against Nas earlier this year in conjunction with his ongoing custody battle were thrown out yesterday by Judge David Cunningham III presiding over the case. Nas has paid all of the child support owed in full. His legal counsel today also settled on additional undisclosed financial terms, which included attorneys’ fees and spousal support.”
Nas has released a statement of his own saying that he just wants to move on.
“All I want to do is make music and raise my kids. Nothing else matters.”
Nas has a daughter from a previous relationship.
Wow, hopefully this is the last we’ll hear of these two in court.
I highly doubt it though…
