Has Nas Left Kelis Destitute?


Kelis claims that she’s flat broke and Nas is not doing a darn thing about it!  She claims that he is filthy rich but refuses to support her or their unborn child.  Kelis claims that she has run out of money and is asking a judge to order Nas to pay up.  Here’s the story from TMZ:

Kelis claims estranged hubby Nas has left her high and dry … not offering her a penny in the wake of her impending birth … and she says she’s broke — “I have run out of money.”

Kelis filed legal papers claiming Nas isn’t paying her support, pre-natal expenses — nothing, even though she claims he is filthy rich.

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 supplies.

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 says she’s entitled to maintain the lifestyle to which she became accustomed during their marriage — they have five homes, fly first class, go to fancy restaurants, and on and on. Most interesting — “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

This is a horrible turn of events but it leads me to believe that Nas doesn’t think that this child is his.  I would hate to think that the man who wrote songs to motivate the youth like “I Know I Can” would turn his back on his family like that.  There must be some deep issues that we have yet to find out about.   This fiasco as well as Usher’s divorce, is going to make for a very interesting year…

    This is quite the predicament, which makes it a little difficult to even comment on 😕 Because in one sense, my mind says “pull yourself up by your bootstraps Kelis, and get on with you life – financially and otherwise.” Then reality settles in a bit more, and I think “ummm…your 20 months pregnant with his baby, the least he could do is support you during the outset of the baby’s life, because the baby’s survival depends on your survival too!” Nas needs to stop playing, drop a couple of duckets, and charge it to the game! Seriously this woman is walking around pregnant with YOUR BABY and your contesting whether you should provide spousal support as she’s carrying your child?!! This just further supports the fact that money doesn’t buy class or decency, but according to Kelis’ claims, money might be able to buy alot of other things (namely a Gucci Baby Stroller…just kidding, I friggin’ heart Kelis – get yo money Ma!!!)
