    With a baby on the way, Kelis needs more dough for things like a $3,500 nanny.

    Ain't no refunds, hip hop star Kelis spent the cash, man.

    Now she's in divorce court asking for more.

    "I do not have funds to maintain our marital lifestyle or pay for our unborn child's expenses," Kelis said in her filing, according to Access Hollywood. "My survival is based on [Nas's] will at this time."

    After splitting with hubby of six years, rapper Nas, Kelis is in court trying to justify why she needs more (much more) than the $21,616 a month she's been pulling in, according to TMZ.

    Besides her $14,861 mortgage and monthly entertainment/vacation expenses, she has a baby boy due any day now and will need another $3,500 a month to compensate a nanny.

    And for the first year of her baby's life, she'll need about $2,000 to store stem cells from his umbilical cord, according to Access Hollywood.

    All in all, she says she'll need $80,831a month to make ends meet.

    Kelis filed for divorce in April, citing irreconcilable differences, according to Vibe. At the time, she was seven months pregnant with their first child.
