Back in 2010 Nas was ordered to pay ex-wife Kelis $50,000.00 a month in alimony and child support [click here if you missed that].
Nas' support order was eventually slashed to $25,000 a month [click here if you missed that] and now, for the first time, Nas opens up about Kelis running his pockets...
Nas tells MTV RapFix,
''Life is crazy. I wound up paying more money to baby mommas than what some of my rap brothers and sistren make."
''I've always been away from too much limelight and that right there put me in it -- no one's exempt from people probing into your life once you get into the game."
''So [the divorce] put a lot of my business out there, man. People weren't thinking I was making that kind of money, and now they knew.''
