Kelis Order To Cough Up $17,000 After Leaving Nanny Stranded In London

According to The Blast Kelis has been ordered to pay $17,000 to her former nanny after allegedly leaving her stranded in London.

The former nanny, Soraya Tascon, filed a complaint with the California Labor Commissioner’s Office after Kelis refused to pay her in full for services rendered.

Tascon was hired in early 2016 to look after Kelis’ then six-month-old baby and her then seven-year-old son (whom she shares with Nas). The nanny reportedly agreed to work out of Kelis’ home and travel with her while the singer was on tour for the fee of $750 a week.  Tascon says she asked about being paid but Kelis after a few weeks of working, but was never paid. A month later they were overseas in London, where she claims Kelis fired her and left her without providing a ticket for her to return back home to Los Angeles.

Tascon claimed she was owed over a hundred hours of wages and overtime, along with the $1,200 she spent on the flight home. After filing a complaint with the Labor Commission of the State of California, Tascon won a judgment in the amount of $17,623.73 after they determined the evidence proved her claims and later dismissed Kelis’ argument that the nanny had a problem returning phone calls or texts during the incident.
