According to a report, Kelis allegedly left her nanny stranded while overseas, and now has to pay almost $18,000 to the woman.
The nanny—Soraya Tascon was with Kelis while the singer was on tour in June 2016. Tascon was taking care of Kelis’ then six-month-old baby and seven-month-old son that she and Nas have together. Kelis reportedly was supposed to give the nanny $750 a week to take care of her children, but did not do so. When they reached London, Kelis fired the nanny and didn’t pay for a plane ticket for the woman to get back to Los Angeles.
Tascon had to find her way back to L.A. and filed a complaint to the Labor Commission of the State of California. It was noted that the Labor Commissioner immediately sided with Tascon in the matter, saying she was a victim.
