Nas 'facing Contempt Of Court Charges' - CATEGORY News update: TITLE

Nas has pleaded not guilty to contempt of court following accusations that he failed to pay both child and spousal support to estranged wife Kelis.

The 'Milkshake' singer originally filed for divorce from the rapper last year, just months before she gave birth to their son Knight.

The warring couple have since been engaged in a bitter legal battle, which has led to Kelis filing a contempt motion against Nas, alleging that he has failed to keep up with the $51,000 (£31,336) per month court-ordered support payments.

At a court hearing last week, Kelis's lawyer claimed that Nas owed her nearly $200,000 (£125,000) in outstanding child and spousal support and attorney's fees. The attorney acting for Nas has subsequently entered a plea of not guilty on the star's behalf.

According to TMZ, a contempt hearing is scheduled for next month.
