Kelis Tells Nas To Cough Up

Nas Tells Kelis To Get Stuffed

The Kelis Vs Nas debarkle is the gossip gift that keeps on giving; you may remember that Kelis filed legal papers last month demanding that her future baby daddy cough up some dough towards their un-born child.

Proclaiming that she was skint, Kelis demanded that Nas pay spousal support, child support, all pregnancy-related expenses, and one-half of all medical expenses after the child is born. Plus, she wants an extra $US3,500 for a nurse and $US20,000 for prams, nappies and all that other newborn baby paraphernalia. That's one expensive baby!

Kelis told at the time: "My survival is based on Nas. If he does not want to pay for an expense, it does not get paid."

But according to, Nas is calling out the ‘Bossy’ singer in divorce proceedings claiming he’s paid her more than she says, and makes less than she thinks.

In initial documents, Kelis claimed that Nas raked in $US11 million for his album deal.

But Nas claims via legal papers, "I did not receive even half that amount"... claiming it's more like $US4 million. The rapper, whose last album failed to make an impression on the charts, also claims his income is declining, and he's only pulling in $US147,165 a month. Poor diddums.

Nas says he wants to be "fully involved" with his bub-to-be, and says he's agreed to pay for certain baby items already, like strollers, cribs, and a baby sling. He also added that $US5k a month is a generous amount for child support for a newborn. Seeing as that's more than most adults earn in one month, we tend to agree!

It’s going to get real messy people! We’re betting Kelis now wishes her ‘Milkshake’ didn’t bring that particular boy to the yard…
