Rapper Kelis claims her estranged rapper husband Nas has left her high and dry by not offering her a penny, even in the wake of her impending birth.
This is a big deal because, she says, “I have run out of money.”
Kelis filed legal papers claiming that Nas isn’t paying her support, pre-natal expenses – nothing, even though she claims he is obscenely rich.
The rapper’s lawyer asked a judge to order Nas to pay support, both spousal and child, as well as all pregnancy-related expenses, half of the medical expenses after the kid is born, $3,500 for a nurse, and $20,000 for strollers and other 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.”
Nas and Kelis married in 2003. The baby is due this month.
Kelis says she’s entitled to maintain the lifestyle to which she became accustomed – five homes, flying first class, going out to fancy restaurants, etc.
“There were many expensive pieces [of jewelry] such as a princess-cut diamond tennis bracelet that was recently appraised for $190,000,” she writes.
Even better, the “broke” Kelis states in her declaration that “My engagement ring is an approximately nine-carat cushion-cut diamond solitaire. I have numerous watches… such as Cartier, Rolex, Frank Muller and Chopard.”
