Kelis and Nas are not playing very nice during their divorce proceedings. In papers filled with the court Kelis says she's broke (literally she said "I have run out of money") and Nas doesn't seem to want to part with anything, even though his ex is carrying his child. Nas has not even offered to pay for pre natal expenses and we all know how loaded Nas is, he's worth about $421 million.
Kelis is asking the judge to order Nas to pay spousal support, child
support, all pregnancy-related expenses, and one-half of all medical expenses
after the child is born. She also wants $3,500 for the baby nurse after the
child's birth, and $20,000 for strollers, cribs and other baby
Kelis says, "My survival is based on [Nas'] will at this time. If he
does not want to pay for an expense, it does not get paid." The couple was
married in 2003. The baby is due this month.
Kelis also goes onto to explain that since she's been married to Nas she became accustom to a certain lifestyle and she deserves to keep that. She even went on to list the luxury items Nas has bought her... "There were many expensive pieces [of jewelry] such as a princess-cut diamond tennis bracelet that was recently appraised for $190,000. My engagement ring is an approximately nine-carat cushion-cut diamond solitaire. I have numerous watches...such as Cartier, Rolex, Frank Muller and Chopard." Then of course there's the first class flights, five homes and on and on.
Here's hoping that Kelis can go and have her baby without it being repossessed.
