UPDATE: Kelis may have her baby before she gets a dime from Nas for her pre-natal expenses and baby clothes.

According to tmz.com, Kelis has been asking the judge to make Nas pay for pre-natal expenses and necessary baby items.

Right now a hearing is set for July 21, but there’s a hitch…Kelis may be in labor during the hearing, and she’s in desperate need of cash,  So her lawyer went to court asking to move the hearing date up.

Sadly for Kelis, the judge was on vacation and the substitute judge wouldn’t mess with the court calendar.

We feel bad for pregnant Kelis!!!

UPDATE: Nas is finally speaking out, in typical celeb fashion…he’s blogging!!!!  Nas just wrote a blog about the importance of protecting family and “our woman.”

Check out what he has to say:

Nas writes on Global Grind: “Right now I’m shouting out to real dads. Some are great role models with real academic achievements. Some are not … We deserve the love!!! We put up with everything, standing true to what’s real and letting life take its course protecting our household, our woman, our children, our family … Biggest Shout To My Son On The Way!!”

Nas, why don’t you give Kelis a shout out and let her know you’re going to take care of your baby!!

UPDATE: Kelis wants Nas to pay up!!!  The singer, expected to deliver her first child next month, said in a court filing she wants her soon-to-be ex-husband to give her $20,000 a month for baby supplies.

According to tmz.com, Kelis says from 11/08 to 4/09, her average monthly income was $21,616. Hardly poor, but way less than what she and Nas were pulling in while she was with him.

The singer has some pretty hefty expenses — $80,831 a month … way more than she says she makes.

Kelis makes her money from touring, but hasn’t toured in over a year. Her monthly expenses include:

$14,861 on her mortgage, nanny costs $3,500 a month, $15,000 a month on entertainment, gifts and vacations — and wait for it…. $175 to have the “baby rug dry cleaned.”

And then we have this:

Kelis says she wants to buy “storage to bank the baby’s blood when he is born. The banking is the collection and storage of the stem cells found in the baby’s umbilical cord.” It’s used to treat 70 life-threatening diseases. It all costs $$.

SMH!!!!

What do the planets have in store for Nas and Kelis?

Kelis says Nas has left her high and dry and that she’s broke. The singer says, “I have run out of money.”

According to tmz.com, Kelis filed legal papers claiming Nas isn’t paying her support, pre-natal expenses — nothing, even though she claims he is filthy rich.

Did Nas throw patron in Kelis’ face?

Kelis wants 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’s nurse after the child’s birth, and $20,000 for strollers, cribs and other baby supplies.

Kelis may want to get a job, she’s being real xtra right now!!!

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.”

Seems like she’s used to living a certain lifestyle, but now that the marriage is over, she needs to wake up and deal with the fact that it’s all about providing for the baby. Her lavish lifestyle is now out the door.

The couple have five homes, and Kelis is used to the fancy restaurants and expensive jewelry, which includes a princess-cut diamond tennis bracelet that was recently appraised for $190,000.

Kelis says: “My engagement ring is an approximately nine-carat cushion-cut diamond solitaire. I have numerous watches…such as Cartier, Rolex, Frank Muller and Chopard.”

Her lawyer reach out to Nas for money for both Kelis and the baby but he has not responded.

We hope Nas will do the right thing and take care of his child.

Check out the couple in happier times:

Kelis goes in on cheating husbands.
