Kelis Accused of Stiffing Illegal Immigrant Housekeeper

Published January 18, 2011

It's apparently Kelis's turn to pay up.

TMZ reports that Kelis owes her former housekeeper $900, but the "Milkshake" singer may not have to hand over a dime. Word is her housekeeper is living and working in the country illegaly.

The maid, whose name has not been released, reportedly earned $150 per day and worked once a week. Sources say the maid is looking into ways to get compensated and is in search of a lawyer to see if she can file a motion with the California Labor Commission.

In related news, Kelis's ex-husband, Nas, recently got his child support payments sliced in half. Under the new agreement, the Queens lyricist must fork over $5,000 per month in child support and $20,000 in spousal support.
