The single mother has urged her ex-husband Nas to do more to support their son financially as much of her money, she says, is spent covering costs she and the rapper should share.
This week, her efforts to force the legal system to force Nas to step up to the plate has seen her own finances laid bare via court documents and showcase just how successful the ‘Game Show‘ singer has fared away from the major label system.
According to her income declaration, Kelis says she currently has $691,153.22 in the bank and $1,374,000 worth of property.
Her grand total of monthly expenses comes to $25,319.
Kelis has two businesses which pull in monthly income — her entertainment/touring company (MyKnight, Inc.) and Feast Enterprises, which is her food product business.
In 2016, MyKnight pulled in $287,755 and the following year, made $922,840. Her net income following expenses came to $98,273 (2016) and $463,809 (2017).
Her food business, Feast Enterprises, pulled in $30k (2016) and $17k (2017) but both years she ended in the red following expenses — $51k and $31k, respectively.
Her music royalties weren’t as much as one would think: $21k for 2016 and $9k for 2017.
All of this lifted her income to close to $1 million in 2017.
She is now seeking more support from Nas, whose income is much higher, as she raises their son Knight.
