A Los Angeles judge has officially terminated the high-profile marriage between emcee Nas and songstress Kelis. TMZ.com reports that the announcement was made May 21, last Friday by a Los Angeles Superior Court judge.

The former couple remain in litigation over child support, alimony and custody rights. After paying a reported $87,000 the Queens Rap veteran recently asked for an appeal when the court concluded he earns over $150,000 a month. The rapper is said to be paying his ex-wife over $10,000 a month at present.

The couple married in January of 2005 in Atlanta, making it a five-plus-year marriage. Last summer, media rumors began, followed by legal action on Kelis' part, citing "irreconcilable differences" between the duo.

Last summer, the couple had a son, Knight, born during their early divorce proceedings.

Three days before the announcement, Nas and Damian Marley released Distant Relatives, a critically-acclaimed concept album recorded throughout the period in Nas' life.
