Kelis: Nas Left Me High and Dry

6/15/2009 3:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kelis and NasKelis claims estranged hubby Nas has left her high and dry ... not offering her a penny in the wake of her impending birth ... and she says she's broke -- "I have run out of money."

Kelis filed legal papers claiming Nas isn't paying her support, pre-natal expenses -- nothing, even though she claims he is filthy rich.

Kelis is asking 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 nurse after the child's birth, and $20,000 for strollers, cribs and other baby supplies.

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." The couple was married in 2003. The baby is due this month.

Kelis says she's entitled to maintain the lifestyle to which she became accustomed during their marriage -- they have five homes, fly first class, go to fancy restaurants, and on and on. Most interesting -- "There were many expensive pieces [of jewelry] such as a princess-cut diamond tennis bracelet that was recently appraised for $190,000. My engagement ring is an approximately nine-carat cushion-cut diamond solitaire. I have numerous watches...such as Cartier, Rolex, Frank Muller and Chopard."

Nas and KelisHer lawyer, disso-queen Laura Wasser, says in a separate declaration she's asked Nas to ante up some $$$ for Kelis and the unborn baby but he hasn't responded.

A breakup is always sad when there is a child involved. I hope they can resolve all of this quickly to help elievate some stress she must be carrying around with that unborn child

I find her comment about being entitled to maintain the lifestyle she has been accustomed to to be just
plain ridiculous, just as the amount she is asking for strollers, etc. I think she needs a reality check as to
what is going on in the rest of the world. I do feel Nas needs to pay her pre natal expenses and maybe
some child support but I am sure the amount she wants is far too high to be realistic
