Kelis Is Demanding $80K A Month+Beyonce Tour News+The Lakers Celebrate Their Championship

Well Kelis has taken her case of brokeassness to the courts. She filed her expenses in court docs today to prove why she needs the money Nas is refusing to give her for baby expenses and living expenses. According to TMZ: 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. Kelis, who is ready to give birth, has some pretty hefty expenses -- $80,831 a month ... way more than she says she makes. Kelis says she hasn't toured in a year and most of her income comes from her concerts. Kelis says she spends $14,861 on her mortgage. Her nanny costs $3,500 a month. She spends $15,000 a month on entertainment, gifts and vacations -- not too shabby. And she says it cost $175 to have the "baby rug dry cleaned." So Ke Ke hasn't made over $20k in a month, but needs $80k for her mortgage and nanny and rug cleaning for her unborn baby. Can't wait to see how the judge rules on this one....

Girl group Rich Girl has just been confirmed to open for Beyonce's U.S. leg of her I Am tour. Definitely a surprising choice.... Pics from the Lakers congratulatory parade today when you read the rest...

Kobe, Vanessa, and their daughters celebrated the Lakers Championship on a parade float today in L.A.:

So did Derek Fisher and the rest of the team.  Apparently the Lakers had to pony up $1 mill+ to have the parade b/c the city couldn't subsidize it this year. The Randomness: 1. Jamie Foxx is wrapped up in a new lawsuit. And is blaming it on the alcohol... 2. Aubrey O'Day got robbed outside her Manhattan hotel room this morning and the muggers stole everything she had in her hands--including her Zac Posen dress. She was on her way to film a segment for TV Guide. Meanwhile, no one really cares.

I think Kobe's kids are cute

I think Kobe's kids are cute well the oldest one. The youngest one is growing on me. That being said they look more like him than her and its obvious he adores them. I don't know how he feels about Vanessa and I don't care really. They have a marriage that works for them whatever that may be. As long as they do what's right by those kids I have no issue. I don't think highly of Vanessa to be honest but I don't think she's any worse than the other wives of pro athletes most of them are annoying heifers anyways. I never expected her to be different. Its too bad we don't see Kobe's parents all that much though.

That's why I love this site.

That's why I love this site. Cuz we tell it like it is. Yes, sorry but Kobe's kids look like Jerry's kids. One do look like ole boy from Fantasy Island. Housekeepers don't come out in public like that for nothing. Especially more than one. Kobe stuck like chuck just straight f****ed. Only we as black people make beautiful babies. I've have white people tell me this too. Especially nurses.

I like Kelis and all, but 80K

I like Kelis and all, but 80K a month is ridiculous. There are men and women out here raising they babies on way less than that. She better get real. Shit she better take a cue from DMX's wife and get a second career, launch a fragrance, start a few businesses (i.e T.I's girl Tiny) or something, cuz that mansion aint gone pay for itself, and from the looks of it, Nas aint either.

I like Kelis and all but 80K is ridiculous. Shit she better do what real world working moms do and work or start a few businesses, come out with a fragrance or something cuz depending on a nigga to pay for all of your expenses is an EPIC FAIL! Shit she better take a note from DMX wife and take on a second career cuz that mansion aint gone pay for itself, and from the looks of it, Nasir aint either.

Kelis broke ass is crazy.. I

Kelis broke ass is crazy.. I believe in spousal support, but DAMN! You can raise about 10 families on what she's asking for! Nas should just focus on his kid and let her fund her own glamorous life style. One that I'm sure her 2 song career wouldnt be able to pull off.

I loved that song since it

I loved that song since it got leaked a good year before the CD even came out. Hope the video works with the song Kelis, really? 80 grand a month is ridic. She had a career (somewhat) of her own, so why is she asking for such an outrageous amount from NAS. smh

jennielove: Okay, so I’ve

jennielove: Okay, so I’ve noticed since Kobe’s cheating incident that his wife is staying close by, but also noticed that she seems to be scared by that incident. She’s all smiles for the camera, but seems scorned to me. She cusses everybody out in the presence of her kids with no regard for setting an example for them. They’ve been through several housekeepers…seems like nobody can work for her, and I think Kobe is trying to front like everything is okay with them. During the award ceremony at the last game, she was not at all connected with anybody else on that podium but Kobe and their kids. I wonder if she has any friends. And when she does make a public statement for her craziness, it’s always through her lawyer/s. She needs the Lord to heal her and she needs to find self worth in herself and not in fame, clothes, jewelry, etc. You're right JL....but most of these women KNOW what they're getting into by marrying these types of men! A friend of mine told me she read somewhere that it's RARELY about love...or even $$$/jewels but the NAME of these men that they covet so much! The damn name! These women are so far removed from themselves let alone God! There's no helping them! They're completely LOST!

KELIS...how can you NOT live

KELIS...how can you NOT live off of $20K a month?!!? RI-DAMN-FUKN'-DICULOUS! That's some people's annual salary, and they're (strugglin') but still makin' ends meet, what's WRONG w/you!?!! Estas dominicana, an islander...so you weren't used to money ALL your life! Leavin' it after gettin' it for only FIVE years, won't kill you! Esp. w/$20K as a monthly income...PUTA, please!!!! ------- Just a question....not a joke....does Kobe's first born have down syndrome?!

Scooby: Y the heck Kobe’s kids look like a broke bootleg version of Kimora Lee Simmons’s kids lol! How can someone's kids look like a bootleg version of anyone? They are human beings not forever 21 specials. They look the way God intended them to look and he doesn't do bootleg!

TyTy: Nas has some

TyTy: Nas has some companies on the side yo!Just coz these guys are a rappers/entertainers doesn’t mean that all they do is eat off “endorsments, movies and clothing lines” That is a very stereotyped view right there.Some of our artists are actually smarter than you think….besides, we are talking NAS here. You should know better. He shoulda known better than to bag that milkshake though. One of my friends pointed out that Nas has been a guest artist on a lot of albums recently also and I can remember seeing his name a lot. So he is still getting paid plus royalties from all of his successful albums from the 90s and early 2000s.

jennielove: I think both

jennielove: I think both his girls look like him. Or maybe he just doesn't want his girls to look like little black girls which they do anyway. If he has self-esteem issuees, it wouldn't be shocking. Little black girls are beautiful to me, I don't understand why people want mixed babies just to avoid having them look like little black girls!!!!

sherry: You know I think

sherry: You know I think that it is mean. I think they look like that because he thought because he is ugly that marrying a non african american would make some cute babies. You notice how whenever he talks about his children he always reference thank god they look like their mother. I think Kobe really thinks he is ugly. This could be why he dumped that educated black girl for an uneducated mexican girl that use to deny her mexican hertiage. I think that is karma for him. But do you notice how thay seem to be more connected to Kobe and never really affectionate with Vanessa. Just an observation. I think both his girls look like him.

Damn Kelis is not playing!

Damn Kelis is not playing! She needs to stop I mean I heard that Nas is worth 421 million I guess she's trying to milk him dry I hope they come to some kind of agreement for the child's sake.

ALLDAY BABY!!! This back and forth is so childish. Grow up!

At the end of the clip

At the end of the clip Beyonce stated, "I am a fulfilled happy woman...my priorities will continue to change as I get older" some of you bloggin on this site, really need to try that. She is a young woman, not even 30 yet at the peak of her career and is KILLING the entertainment industry. Let the woman live...she's doing what fulfills her and makes her happy, not everyone can do that and it's a damn good look. It really helps you to feel so much better about you...there are really some very unhappy and miserable people on this site, for real. Y'all should really just try and be happy...it really does feel good

MeLeLe: And years before

MeLeLe: And years before beyonce did the Robot outfit, KYLIE MINOGUE did it. 2-3 years before beyonce suspended herself above and MTV stage in a trench coat…Britney spears did for the same award show. …Just so YOU know. My reason for saying this is that it is 2009...pop music and pop artists have been around for I'd say 50-60 years. In that time span...everything has been done in the way of performance. No one is hardly and original these days. So please get it out of your head that Beyonce or any pop artist is an original when it comes to performing.

Jane Doe: I Think Kelis Is

Jane Doe: I Think Kelis Is CRAZY 80 thousand a Month.. She Gotta be on Something.. and Nas Cds Don’t Flop Where U Been at??.. Nas debuts high but his last 2 or 3 albums have not done big numbers. It might not be a Ciara's 3rd album level flop but its not successful enough for this woman to be asking for 80G's a month. And yeah I know the dude has other ventures bringing in money yada yada yada... BEYONCE SWAGGER JACKING CIARA ALREADY: YOU BEYONCE FANS ARE TRUELY STUPID.JUST WOW AT SOME OF YALL. KEEP THINKING CIARA IS A FLOP AND NOT HOT IN EUROPE. AS A MATTER OF FACT KEEP BRAGGING ABOUT BEYONCE CAUSE YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT COULD HAPPEN. SO KEEP SAYING CIARA ISN’T TALENTED EVEN THOUGH THE INDUSTRY HAS ALREADY CALLED HER THIS GENERATION JANET. KEEP HATING CAUSE WHEN KARMA BITES YOU HATERS IN THE ASS I WILL BE LAUGHING. HAHAH being "Hot in Europe" thats the claim of every artist who flops in America because no one cares enough to actually check if thats true. How about the stars who are hot ALL OVER THE WORLD????? Ciara certainly doesnt fit that category.

iolastar: There is nothing

iolastar: There is nothing wrong with asking for a high number in a divorce this is where the negotiating will come in. Like it or not Kelis is the mother of his child and he will have to provide for them both. I always liked them as a couple, they seem like opposites to us, but they’re probably more alike they were together for awhile. I just hope they get it together for the baby’s sake.People hate on Beyonce, but she’s doing her thing and she’s doing it in some bad ass shoes and boots!And is it just me, but when the Lakers won the body language between Kobe and Vanessa speaks volumes! She looks like she marvels in all this attention. Kobe loves his girls and may have love for Vanessa, but I don’t think his heart is with Vanessa, but maybe I’m wrong. I agree, I love Bey people need to stop. i am soo excited about Sunday in New York. It would my first show at Madison Square Gardens because I am from B-More. I will say it again, I think Nas should pay spousal and child support. It is always looked upon as a negative in the black community but I get it. Black women are protrayed as being strong and independent and men buy into it. Stop hating on her for doing what the other races do. As for Vanessa, as you can always see she finds the camera. Think about the her waiting in the tunnel at half time and after the game for her tv time. She is an attention hulk. I think their marriage is for cameras, I doubt if they have any real connection besides the children and she seems to be disconnected to them. Kobe is dumb and I think he realizes he made a mistake with Vanessa but do not know how to get out. She is a little psycho. She should try to do things such as go back to school because she thrives off of his life. I can not imagine having a conversation with her.

ummm I think Kelis should cut

ummm I think Kelis should cut down on going away for vacations and giving lavish presents, you ready to pop anyways, go and have a sat down.
*arte*'s picture

I said it yesterday and I

I said it yesterday and I will say it again. Kelis is in serious denial about her finances. In this economic times she needs to cut back. Vacations, gifts and entertaining are not essential. Nas shouldn't have to pay for that. Her talkin before about he needs to help with the medical expenses of the birth...umm beech ain't you insured? Beech you are not working like that and you DAMN sure ain't touring like beyonce...even Britney for that matter. So why do you need a nanny? Raise your own damn kids you ain't Posh Spice. I think she should get 15-20K a month in child support. If Nas was smart they will do a split custody and he won't have to pay child support. Nas isn't going to shit on his child. And what morgage do you have where you are paying 14K? I PRAy that's not 14K month. If that's the case beech you need to down size and get something that you can afford.

Ladies, I'm a 28 yr old

Ladies, I'm a 28 yr old brotha who reads the ybf here an there to see what's going on with black celebs. I have a 10am meeting but had to comment on Kelis and Nas. 1st I may be biased Since besides 2pac, Nas is my favorite rapper. But you can't tell me the airing out of laundry Kelis is doing is called for. She's paying a nanny, and dry cleaning rugs prior to having a kid. That makes ZERO sense at all. Also, she is going to get a nice chunk of change regardless due to a standard divorce and having a child. To say anyone deserves this is un-called for. Also, Nas has been quiet on this and yet I see women commenting and dissing him when all you have heard is one side of things from Kelis. None of us were in the relationship. The courts are going to see to it that Nas either pays child support if the child is his or he'll be in jail. How about we not crucify the guy when you haven't heard anything from him. It really makes brothas who are moderately successful (100k or more) worry about being married/having kids with anyone. I just had to get on the soapbox for this one. Hopefully, they can squash this... But too me Kelis has really tarnished her rep by giving a new tidbit daily. NAS top 5 of all time.

I’m mad that TMZ has so much

I’m mad that TMZ has so much to say about Nas and Kelis on a dily basis when it comes to something negative. But when they are doing something good, they’re no existant on a TMZ post. Same for the Urshmeka situation. Harvey and his 2 tokens (dread lock boy and the ghetto chick that wears the fitteds) all need more people!! Quote TMZ and other gossip sites make it their busy to report gossip...they are not CNN or your local news. they don't care about feel good stories. they report the dirt...that is their job...nothing racial about it

Its not really a surprise that RichGirl is opening for Bey, cuz they are from Houston just like her… I’m lovin Richgirl by the way!
