I usually don’t post celebrity stuff here but for some reason this, this right here just tickles me to no end.
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.”
Her 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.
My advice to Kelis?
Sell it. All of it. You look out of your cotton picking mind asking your soon to be ex husband to pay for these lavish items for a baby nursery when you are flat broke. How are you broke when you admit to owning 5 homes and a slew of diamond and Cartier jewelry? Let me guess? None of that stuff is in your name?
Why didnt you have the presence of mind to stash some of that cash away for a rainy day? Start a profitable business? Women like you bother me because you go into marriage not thinking about how to stand on your own two feet should the unthinkable happen, not so much in your case because well celebrities divorce at a higher rate than the rest of us.
I don’t claim to know everything but what is posted on the Internet about your life but for goodness sakes woman, have some dignity, sell your possessions to make a comfortable life for you and your child. This begging and pleading for $20k nursery items makes you look deranged and out of touch. What you need is a financial check up and a Certified Financial Planner to help you move forward without having to worry about Nas making sure that you live the lifestyle you’re accustomed to while married. Newsflash: think about and begin to make plans around the fact that you might end up with the short end of the stick. Anything above that is just extra. Be empowered, pick up your dignity and keep it moving and you might want to think about *gasp* earning a living?
There are NBA groupies out there with better business sense and I can’t knock them. At least if they snag a baller, some come out with an education and self sustaining business. A man is not a financial plan, but if you choose to go that route, at least come out on top at the end of the dollar sign lined road.
And yes, I agree that Nas should finance the birth of his unborn child, but I don’t agree with crying broke whilst claiming ownership of expensive jewelry and engagement rings. Sell.Them.
