Kelis Demands Estranged Husband Nas To Fund Stem Cell Storage For Their Baby

Kelis is demanding Nas funds stem cell storage for their baby. The "Milkshake" singer filed for divorce from the rapper in May, citing "irreconcilable differences", and legal documents show she has made a string of requests for their unborn child from her spouse of four years.

A letter to Nas' lawyer, Mark Kaplan, from Kelis' representative claims the singer needs money to buy storage space "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".

A storage plan pricing information leaflet included in the filing notes states stem cell storage costs $1,999 for the first year.

Kelis - whose baby son is due on July 21 - is asking her estranged husband for $20,000 towards the cost of "purchasing strollers, cribs and other baby supplies" for their two homes, an apartment in Manhattan and a house in Los Angeles.

She is also seeking money to pay for a baby nurse, nanny and other staff.

According to papers she filed in a Los Angeles court, Kelis - whose surname is Rogers - claims she didn't work much in 2008 and had separate bank accounts from her husband. The papers also state she is willing to return to her music career after the baby is born.

She said: "I do not have funds to maintain our marital lifestyle or pay for our unborn child's expenses, around $80,000 a month. My survival is based on Nas' will at this time."

While she said she earned limited royalties of around $23,000 a month, she noted Nas - real name Nasir Jones - has released nine albums, worked on songs for feature films, signed a shoe design deal, produced a Mike Tyson movie and is part owner of a company called Gorilla Union.
