Kelis Responds To Nas Child Custody Filing, Wants To Go To Court - CATEGORY Worldwide news: TITLE

Kelis is looking for a large chunk of change from estranged hubby

Nas to keep their baby in diamond-studded diapers.

The "Milkshake" mama-to-be has filed court papers demanding the rapper pay her $20,000 a month to cover expenses for their son, who is due next month, and help with her cash-flow problem.

"[Her] survival is based on Nas's will," her lawyers say in court documents.

Kelis, 29, claims she needs the money because she hasn't made a dime in over a year from performing, her bread and butter, and has been relying on her MIA hip-hop hubby to underwrite her $80,000-a-month lifestyle.

The R&B songbird says she has only been making about $21,616 a month since November and can barely cover such monthly expenses as a $14,861 mortgage and maintenance on homes in Los Angeles and New York; $15,000 on entertainment, gifts and vacations; and $3,500 for baby bills, including nanny and support staff, supplies (strollers, cribs, diapers, etc.) and cold storage of the child's umbilical cord blood and stem cells in case of future ailments., News Around the world presents the latest information of national, regional, and international, politics, economics, sports, automotive, and lifestyle.
