Kelis and Nas have managed to go a few months without news about their divorce hitting the tabloids, but the peaceful facade has finally cracked as news of court-ordered support payments, attempted reconciliation and pending custody battles hit today.

The couple is in court right now, battling out their divorce case. First up was Nas, 36, being court ordered to increase his monthly support payments from $40,000 to $51,000. But it wasn't all bad news for Nas: The judge also ruled that he no longer has to pay $13,000 a month for the former couple's Los Angeles home.

Kelis, 30, admitted during her testimony that the couple attempted to reconcile in September of this year, but unfortunately, it didn't work out. Nas took the stand after the "Milkshake" singer and testified that he wants overnights with his son. Kelis has sole custody for now, but Nas wants more quality time with his baby Knight, born to the rapper and boricua pop star on July 22, 2009.

Kelis and Nas were married in 2005 and broke up in April of this year.

Mariela Rosario,

I'm a raging opinionista and I love to share my ramblings on everything from pop culture to food to stuff that makes me laugh & cry! I've worked in all types of media (TV, film, print) and was previously the online editor at Latina magazine before joining Mamás Latinas. On most nights you can find me working my way through my library of cookbooks or playing with my puppy Lola (my only child so far). I have a wonderful hubby who shares my passion for any and all kinds of travel. Together, we've formed a semi-professional wine drinking team.
