Kelis has two businesses which pull in a significant monthly income — her entertainment/touring company (MyKnight, Inc.) and Feast Enterprises, which is her food product business.

Nas recently filed his own financial docs, revealing he bags around $175,000 a month and has over $8 million in the bank. His monthly expenses totaled $76k and he spent another $20,000 on supporting family members.

Kelis is seeking an increase of the $8,000 a month in child support Nas currently pays her for their son.

Earlier this month, the “Milkshake” singer opened up about her relationship with Nas, and how he allegedly physically abused her throughout.

Nas reacted to her allegations by commenting on Instagram posts of fans defending him.

“One or two restaurants would have been cool,” an Instagram user wrote. “You started doing too much & she da chef. You know you not suppose to live son!” Nas replied with a 100 emoji, agreeing with the theory that Kelis is envious of his successful business endeavors.

“We need to build the black community, black women are used @ Times by the feminist agenda targeting black men & white supremacy as well, and it’s not what he shows on social media, brothers and sisters, because truthfully it’s none of our business,” wrote another IG user. “We not judge & jury, but some play God, but let God Son raise his son in peace.” The rapper replied with “applause,” seemingly agreeing that Kelis is unfairly targeting him.

The former couple wedded in 2005 and split in 2009 when she was seven months pregnant with Knight.
