    The headline of this post is wrong and really misleading. Only the court (not Nas himself) has the authority to award or deny spousal support. All that happened was he filed a motion *asking* the court to deny support. And the court hasn’t ruled on the motion yet, so you have no idea what the result will be – the court could very well deny his motion and leave the support order in place.
