Nas caught a break after he was cleared of a civil contempt charge on Monday in connection with his divorce from Kelis.MTV News is reporting that the contempt charges were dismissed after Nas paid nearly $50,000 in child support to estranged wife Kelis.

“The contempt charges that were filed against Nas earlier this year in conjunction with his ongoing custody battle were thrown out yesterday by Judge David Cunningham III presiding over the case. Nas has paid all of the child support owed in full. His legal counsel today also settled on additional undisclosed financial terms, which included attorneys’ fees and spousal support.”
Nas also released a statement of his own saying that he just wants to move on.
“All I want to do is make music and raise my kids. Nothing else matters.”
Nas has a daughter from a previous relationship.
