With only two and a half weeks before their official divorce hearing, the legal battle between Nas and his estranged wife Kelis seems to be heating up.

According to TMZ, Nas has filed legal papers requesting the judge to not give Kelis spousal support. He has also requested joint custody of their two-month-old son, Knight. Kelis is reportedly asking for $72,728 a month.

Kelis doesn’t seem to be the only one who sees dollar signs–Uncle Sam seems to see some too. In September, Nas received a huge federal tax lien filed of $2,584,206.31. He reportedly owes back-taxes for 2006 and 2007.

He and Kelis’ divorce hearing is scheduled for November 20. -Linda Hobbs
