Kelis has reportedly given birth to her son. The soon to be ex-Mrs. Nasir Jones was scheduled to appear in court for her divorce settlement case but went to the hospital to have her baby instead. According to Nas’ lawyer, Mark Vincent Kaplan, he rushed to the hospital to be with her for the birth of their baby.
Kelis has been feuding with her estranged husband, Nas, for months mainly about money. She is asking for $20,000 a month in child support because he is her sole source of financial support. In the divorce papers she cited that his Def Jam signing in 2006 was worth $11 million making her requested child support payments reasonable. She also confirmed that he has only given her $350 and $2500 in gift cards for their child.
Out of frustration for the sour divorce, the singer took to her Twitter to call out “scum bag cowards” in June. In a series of Tweets she wrote:
“This lovely day I would like to touch on cheaters. Super brief! Why be cowardly? Why not go after what you really want? Do people know what they want? Probably not which just goes into know and respecting ones self. Also we can discuss whores I mean the nasty sub par tricks that participate in the cheating. Well let me say this, both parties are gross. And in reality they deserve each other. All the scum bag coward husbands and the less then impressive sluts unite! You can all go down in flames together! Hooray! Who’s disgusted and bitter? Not I said the cat! Wink Wink.”
The couple married in 2005 after dating for two years. A lawyer for Kelis confirmed the divorce in April citing “irreconcilable differences”.
