Kelis Owes Housekeeper.


Kelis‘ housekeeper claims the R&B singer owes her $900 in unpaid wages — and according to sources, there’s one major problem preventing her from seeking justice … she’s an illegal alien.

We’re told Kelis’ maid earned $150 a day for her work … and since she only worked one day a week, that means Kelis somehow fell six weeks behind on her payments.

According to sources, the housekeeper is currently exploring her legal options — trying to lock down a lawyer to see if she can file anything with the California Labor Commission.

As we previously reported, Kelis’ rapper ex-husband Nas has been ordered to pay her over $25,000 a month in child and spousal support. Not too shabby.

Calls to Kelis’ camp haven’t been returned.

100 Most POWERFUL Sistas On Twitter.

In a time when Black Women are NOT looked upon favorably, it brings my heart such joy & pleasure to present to you “The 100 Most Powerful Black Women On Twitter” List! According to BlackWeb2.0, they used Klout and Twittergrader, two online reputation measurement tools, to compile a list of the 100 most powerful black women on Twitter. These women have gained a tremendous amount of influence on Twitter by amassing a large number of followers, retweets, and memberships on user lists.

Now I don’t know how the HELL KAT STACKS got on this list, but the rest of these women are PHENOMENAL! They omitted quite a few I can think of off the top of my head. But for the most part, I follow MOST of these ladies myself, and I’m proud to be able to call many of them Friend.

Nas Speaks On Kelis & Divorce.

Nas on Kelis & divorce:

“You live and you learn, when it comes to matters of the heart I go all in. I still think marriage is a beautiful thing, it’s just you have to be strong to weather the ups and downs. I had great hopes and thought we were going to do it big, but when two people see things different and have two different minds, you go into two different directions. But I definitely can see myself doing it again; I had fun doing it and got a beautiful son out of it.”

-“The BklynBandette.” Mr. Hollywood’s Co-Defendant.

Kelis’ “Flesh Tone” Moves 7,900.

Kelis’ NEW CD Flesh Tone sold 7,900 copies first week out. Crickets. Crickets. And More Damn Crickets. And y’all wondering why she sticking Nas for his paper. She KNEW that sh#t wasn’t gonna sell. Who she think she’s foolin’?

-“The BklynBandette.” Mr. Hollywood’s Co-Defendant.

Nas & Kelis OFFICIALLY Divorced.

Nas and Kelis tied the knot in July 2003 and welcomed a baby boy in  July 2009.

Rapper Nas and singer Kelis have officially called it quits. Legal documents finalizing the divorce were filed last Friday in L.A. County Superior Court, according to Despite their nearly seven-year marriage being over, their drama is not. The duo have battled over child custody and spousal support since the singer, then seven months pregnant with the couple’s son, filed for divorce in April 2009, citing “irreconcilable differences.” In July 2009, a Los Angeles court ordered Nas to pay $44,000 a month in spousal and child support. Several months later, a judge increased these payments to $51,101. However, Nas claims he can’t afford these payments. According to testimony in December, the rapper owes his current manager up to $700,000 and millions to the Internal Revenue Service.

-“The BklynBandette.” Mr. Hollywood’s Co-Defendant.

What!!! After all that money Nas is giving up Kelis is barely letting him see his son? Awww Hell No

I got this story from my peep a weeps over at who got it from Kelis is making it very hard for Nas to see his son Knight who he says is “now crawling” Nas says he has to go through”leaps and bounds” to see his son. Check out this quote  from Nas from a recent interview with Vibe Magazine My son was born with ice grills, so when his mom feels in the mood she sends pictures.  If not, it’s hell. It’s hell trying to figure that out, trying to get him—I’ll just leave it at that. It’s hell. A man shouldn’t go through that s**t, but it’s another story I’ma tell at a different time.”

Rediculous  !!  that’s all i’m a say about that.Kelis needs to be shot with a gun full of sh.t and then thrown in jail for stinking

Kelis Wants Out Of Marriage ASAP!


R&B singer Kelis is seeking to make her divorce from Nas official immediately, as opposed to going through with legal proceedings. reports that Kelis filed court documents last week seeking to have their marriage “terminated as soon as possible.”

Kelis told the court that she believed there is no chance of reconciliation with the rapper and is asking the court to wait until a later date to address all “other issues.”

Just last week, a judge in Los Angeles Superior Court ordered Nas to pay Kelis over $299,000 in child support costs, spousal support and also to cover her legal bills.

The rapper was ordered to pay $155,787.28 for Kelis’ lawyers, $48,549.83 in accounting bills, $47,249.42 in back child support and $40,454 in back spousal support.

Nas was cleared of a contempt of court charge last week, after he paid the entire balance of the child support bill.

“All I want to do is make music and raise my kids. Nothing else matters,” Nas said in a statement last week.

Nas also owes an estimated $3 million dollars in back taxes to the IRS.

He is currently preparing to release his highly anticipated album with Damian Marley titled Distant Relatives, which is due in stores May 18th.

Kelis’ new album Flesh Tone is due in stores July 6th on the Music Group.

Nas Ordered To Pay UP In Divorce Settlement.

When They Were...

Nas went to court Monday over his divorce with Kelis — and walked out a little lighter in the wallet.  According to documents filed in L.A. County Superior Court, Nas had to immediately fork over $47,249.42 in back child support and $40,454 in back spousal support.
The judge also ordered Nas to pay $10,000/month in spousal support until he pays off the $299,015.50 he owes Kelis. Nas also has to pay 90% of Kelis’ legal fees in the amount of $155,787.28.  Lastly, Nas has to pay $48,549.83 to cover Kelis’ accounting expenses.  The lesson, as always — when Laura Wasser reps your ex, settle as quickly as possible.  Nas just learned that the hard way.

Kelis Ordered To Pay $5000 In Unpaid Weave Debt.

Seth Browarnik/startraksphoto.coKelis.

Kelis got into a legal tangle over a hair weave. The hip-hop singer will have to pony up $5,000 for a May, 2009, appointment at a Santa Monica salon that sued her for not paying the bill, reports. On Monday, the salon stylist showed up for the trial, but Kelis didn’t. So the judge entered a default judgment and or dered Kelis to pay costs. A rep for Kelis didn’t respond to requests for comment.

-“The BklynBandette.” Mr. Hollywood’s Co-Defendant.

Nas Accused Of Unpaid Child Support.

Nas has denied a criminal contempt charge for unpaid child and spousal support in his divorce from Kelis.  The rapper pleaded not guilty through his attorney and was ordered back for a March hearing in Los Angeles. Kelis’ lawyer claimed Nas is 200,000 dollars behind on child and spousal support. He was ordered to pay more than 51,000 dollars per month to his former wife and infant son in December. Judge David S Cunningham III, who is overseeing the divorce proceedings, said it was starting to look like the rapper is trying to evade court orders. One of Nas’ attorneys, Anthony Ukran, told Cunningham the rapper needs more time to prepare his defence and show he is unable to pay the court-ordered support amounts. Kelis filed for divorce in May.
