Illegal Alien to Kelis: You Stiffed Me!

1/17/2011 5:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Kelis' housekeeper claims the R&B singer owes her $900 in unpaid wages -- and according to sources, there's one major problem preventing her from seeking justice ... she's an illegal alien.

We're told Kelis' maid earned $150 a day for her work ... and since she only worked one day a week, that means Kelis somehow fell six weeks behind on her payments.

According to sources, the housekeeper is currently exploring her legal options -- trying to lock down a lawyer to see if she can file anything with the California Labor Commission.

As we previously reported, Kelis' rapper ex-husband Nas has been ordered to pay her over $25,000 a month in child and spousal support. Not too shabby.

Calls to Kelis' camp haven't been returned.

Kelis, pay her the money you allegedly owe her, then the government can deport her.

I mean, really...Isn't this woman just walking around waving a sign that says "DEPORT ME"? Cheap to not pay your housekeeper, but even cheaper when you know they can't legally do much about it if you stiff them. Hmm...On second thought, that's genius! Still messed up though.

Illegals get to do whatever they want and there are no repercussions. It's ridiculous.

I love it when TMZ brings us this type of "news". Can't wait until we find out when Kelis goes back to the sewer see crawled out of w/o a dime or a nickel.

I can smell the sour milky secretions oozing out between those turkey thighs. It's disgusting...hope nobody is forced to clean in between those loose lips. Illegal or not. Also stop eating a snickers bar, I can see the saturated fat falling off her fatass

If TMZ knows she is here illegally, then it is their responsibility to report it to INS. Or are you just part of the problem?

Hm, think of all the money she and other illegal immigrants cost this country. She doesn't deserve a damn cent.

This woman is going to have a hard time getting her mits the cash she claims right to if she goes through the court system. Seems like this case is just to hassle Kelis out of funds. Cost of lawyer > $900. Fork of the dough minus federal taxes, and then fork this illegal's ass out of the country! Or wait, pay for the lawyer, extend the case and wait for INS to get the maid before she can get the money, just to fork her! hahah. That being said, it should be easier to obtain citizenship in this country.

If she was paid cash under the table, their is no way the illegal alien can even prove she worked for her or what her wages would have been.

Don't pay her. Then maybe she will leave. And if you knew she was illegal and hired her anyway, you should go to jail.

Well too bad for this illegal when dead Federal Judge John Roll allowed 12 illegals who stole, killed calves, stalked and threatened and ran through a ranchers home with his family sue that same Arizona rancher...oh, he would have allowed this illegal to sue and isn't that great ... NOT ... go back to Mexico and come here legally like my father did from Sweden and then use our system. John Roll caused a lawsuit to ruin the ranchers lives when he had enough trouble with them. But course he's dead now and after I learned more about him and after I sobbed he was killed, guess I feel worse for the rancher. He's the real American under the gun and now court too. Maybe this illegal can find a sympathetic judge just like Roll.... maybe ... maybe not.
