There's a damn good reason Kelis is skipping out on today's scheduled court date to fight Nas for child support and baby and prenatal expenses -- she's giving birth right now!!!
TMZ has learned the singer is currently in labor, about to deliver a brand new baby boy.
We also know rapper Nas -- the baby daddy -- is definitely not by her side.
The two were scheduled to battle over expenses. She says he's paid nothing. Nas claims he's paid some.
But the big question -- will Nas actually have the stones to show up to court and argue against his baby mama while she's pushing out their child?!
UPDATE: Nas' lawyer, Mark Vincent Kaplan, just told us Nas is in New York for the birth of the baby and he is now "rushing to the hospital to be with her."
Kelis to Judge: Sorry, Baby ... I'm Busy
