Kelis has put her differences with ex-husband Nas behind her, insisting they’ve become “friends” months after settling their bitter divorce battle. The “Milkshake” hitmaker filed for legal separation in April, 2009 and their marriage was officially dissolved in May. The former hip-hop super-couple also fell out over child support payments for their baby son Knight, 11 months, but the stars have since moved past their legal problems and Kelis claims they are now back on friendly terms.

She tells Us Magazine, “Everything’s fine. We are divorced, but there is no point to fighting there is nothing to fight about. I am super happy; my life is awesome. We are friends, we get along now and it’s all good.” Kelis has drawn inspiration from her failed marriage for her new song “Brave”, a track which addresses the problems in her relationship with Nas and she’s adamant going their separate ways was the best decision for them both.

She says, “After (the split), everyone was like, ‘You are going through a rough time, you should write something personal.’ I wear my feelings on my sleeve. The hardest decisions are the best ones and for me that was really the case. I am definitely better today than I was a year ago. And I’ll be better next year.”

TMZ obtained legal docs in which Nas concedes he owes Kelis a skosh less than $300,000 in spousal support. But it seems the most pressing problem is the mortgage for the home Kelis is living in — Nas is behind $52,989.22.

So Nas’ lawyer, Mark Vincent Kaplan, filed a payment plan with the court, in which the rapper agrees to pay $17,500 up front, and then pretty much double the $7,800 mortgage payment each month to catch up.

It’s pretty amazing — Kelis’ lawyer, disso queen Laura Wasser, has claimed Nas raked in $244,826 a month.

According to the docs, the plan is to sell the home stat.
