Nas has been trending lately after hitting the stage accompanied by an orchestra, The Illmatic rapper is now trending for unrelated reasons. His ex-wife Kelis claims $8K in child support per month isn't cutting it anymore.

According to TMZ, Kelis wants a judge to up monthly child support payments for their 8-year-old son Knight. It's not certain if she'll get it, but it didn't stop her from requesting it.

The "Milkshake" singer also claims their young son has different needs than 5 years back when the $8k child support order was established. Now that Nas is rolling in the doe these days, she wants more of the green stuff. What does a kid need with $8k? Seriously, I'm asking.

Kelis reportedly hasn't specified an amount, but she wants enough to cover "50% of school-related costs, %50 of child care, and 50% of unreimbursed health care", said TMZ.

Will Kelis be granted the increase in child support? We'll just have to wait and see.
