Kelis: “I Have Run Out of Money”

- By Bossip Staff

This is a classic case of a divorce gone really bad. Nas and Kelis’ financial drama is gettin’ spread across the internet like crazy. Kelis is upset that she can’t afford the Gucci, Prada and Fendi while lounging in a private jet anymore. Pop the hood for more dirty money details

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.”

Nas and KelisHer lawyer, disso-queen Laura Wasser, says in a separate declaration she’s asked Nas to ante up some $$$ for Kelis and the unborn baby but he hasn’t responded.

So Nas is supposed to be supplying your luxury lifestyle for the rest of your life? Doesn’t sound right to us. We think she needs to worry about the baby and leave the other bullsh*t behind.

    I’m going to stay out of this one.

  • Me No Likey

    This is very very messy- I wonder if paternity is in question?

    Kelis- why don’t you have enough of your own money to provide for yourself, chidl support is for the support of a child not an adult? Kelis should be able to take care of herself and then let the courts force (since it has come to that) to enforce NAS providing 1/2of all the babys’ expenses.

    I don’t see the need for spousal support if Kelis AND NAS were both forced to liquidate their assets gained during the marriage and split them? That seems fair to me- if WE bought it while WE were married and money flowed in both accounts then SPLIT IT.

    What she and he had b4 getting married should stay theirs, seperately.

  • Nigga Said

    Kelis kind of reminds me of Danger from “For the Love of Ray J”. Just a little off her rocker, cute, scarey, crazy and sexual. The type you know you should stay away from, but for some reason you don’t, won’t or can’t.

  • Be Original

    Wow, has it really come to this? She’s showing her true colors and needs to get back into the studio to try & sell more of her sorry *ss music. I’m a woman & find it amazing that we’re able to use the “I’m accustomed to a certain lifestyle” argument when there is an impending divorce. Her rants have me now thinking that he wanted to end the marriage & she is responsible for it’s demise, but she beat him to the punch.

  • http://hmlt Too short

    I say she deserves everything she is asking for, he has it, she is accustom to living a certain way,I’m going with Eddie on this, She wants 1/2.

  • ...

    When you get a divorce you should have to give up half of everything, no questions asked. Stop saying til death do us part if you don’t mean it.

  • miss girl

    Nas is punishing Kelis for taking a stand against his cheating. By filing for divorce she hurt his ridiculous ego.

    Kelis is Nas’ wife and he legally owes her spousal and child support.

    I thought Nas was of more substance and integrity than this. His conscious rap game is total bullcrap if this is how he treats his wife and unborn child.

    I do recall it was Kelis scarifising all her own productivity to be Nas trophy and promoter of Nas’ records and the N-gger publicity stunt.

    He’s got nerve to break her down like this in public. No better than a loser on the corner hanging in front of the corner store, is this really “uplift my people” Nas leaving his wife and kid penniless.

  • Real Paporazzi

    Just bring a new album K and you’ll see the world will support you,and for Nas i don’t think he will turn he’s back on he’s son, he just wait for DNA test,woman start to be an entrepeneur of your own,that’s 2009 no need any one else to make sure that you can drink and eat everyday,our mothers did that in the past and look how strong we can become,follow what they did,they went back to school,raised the children,cleaned up,whatever,bread and water that’s where strenght all start.

  • Souljagir

    Well, she’d better start getting some endorsement deals on that baby! Too, Nas is foul for that though even my fiance told me if we split he’d put me up in an apartment and pay half the rent plus some money for our son…….

  • Vicious Kitty

    After all those years of being married without children, that may explain why she got pregnant. She knew he was about to leave her…she needed a meal ticket for the next 18 years. To bring a child into the mix when trouble is brewing is never going to turn out well. $20,000 baby stroller…that is ridiculous. I guess she needs to drag the baby along while she’s shopping for clown clothes to match her circus hair. Ladies, never get caught out there like this. Get your own…everything! Nas…call me…my tubes are tied.

  • EboneezLeggz

    Not saying that Nas shouldn’t be helping her but why is she broke??? A real woman is supposed to be able to take care of herself and her baby weather the man is around or not that’s just how we do. Shame on you Kelis I thought you were BOSSY

  • missunderstood

    damn, I don’t know what to say. On the one hand, Kelis is still legally his wife, pregnant, and not a ‘working’ entertainer right now. So I do feel that he has some duty to help fend for her and THEIR child. However, some of the more lavish requests, I think are unnecessary. If you have no money, you are just trying to LIVE, not live fabulously…
    Also, I doubt her claims that Nas is ‘filthy rich’. He’s caked up, sure. As far as any of us go, he is probably sitting on something major, but I bet just a few bad decisions (like a bad marriage w/ a baby) could see him dried out just like the next man… It does seem like he is being kind of cold-hearted, but she also seems kind gold-diggerish w/ her requests, so IDK what to make of it. She’s going to get some money though, that’s for sure….

  • missunderstood

    @what happened to my name? – he said Beyonce’s breath stank… lol…

  • Liyah

    Kelis wants all that, but she doesn’t need it. She can take care of her own baby, she dont need a nurse. And that $20,000 she supposed to be getting for baby supplies??? She better learn how to stretch that as far as she can, preferrably til the baby is two. No expensive nonsense.
