Well isn’t this messy!! First Kelis was on Twitter openly ranting about the failed state of their relationship, now she’s taking it to the streets to let folks know she’s broke. Apparently Nas left her w/no income, & a babymama got needs–like a $3,500 nurse, & $20,000 strollers & cribs!!

I had to wonder though—now Kelis may not be anywhere near as successful as her ex-hubby, but she’s got a solid cult following.  She better take that nurse on the road!!

However this turns out, hopefully they can remain cordial for the sake of the baby.

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.
