Kelis Earns $21K a Month, Spends $80K

by at . Comments

Kelis has declared her financial status with the court, making her case to receive child and spousal support, plus baby expenses, from estranged husband Nas.

From 11/08 to 4/09, Kelis' average monthly income was $21,616.

Not exactly broke, as she claimed to be earlier in the week, but significantly less than what she and Nas were pulling in as a couple while they were married.

Oh, and Kelis, who is ready to give birth, has $80,831 in monthly expenses.

Of that sum, Kelis says she spends $14,861 on her mortgage. Her nanny? $3,500 a month. She spends $15,000 a month on entertainment, gifts and vacations.

You can list those as "expenses"? Maybe she should try living within her means since she filed for divorce. There's always reading celebrity gossip for free online!

She says it cost $175 to have the "baby rug dry cleaned," and that she must buy "storage to bank the baby's blood when he is born. The banking is the collection and storage of the stem cells found in the baby's umbilical cord."

We're sure that's real cheap.

Kelis says she hasn't toured in a year and most of her cash comes from concerts. Man, if a girl can't make it on $21,616 a month, what is the world coming to.
