Beach Bumming...

Divorces are messy so its pretty understandable that singer Kelis decided to hit the beach to get away from the hoopla surrounding her pregnancy and recent separation from rapper Nas. According to TMZ.com things aren't going well in splitsville, Kelis is running into financial trouble as her estranged husband was the primary breadwinner.

Kelis said, "My survival is based on [Nas'] will at this time. If he does not want to pay for an expense, it does not get paid."

Kelis also said she's entitled to maintain the lifestyle to which she became accustomed during their marriage -- they have five homes, fly first class, go to fancy restaurants, and on and on.

"There were many expensive pieces [of jewelry] such as a princess-cut diamond tennis bracelet that was recently appraised for $190,000. My engagement ring is an approximately nine-carat cushion cut solitaire. I have numerous watches...such as Cartier, Rolex, Frank Muller and Chopard."

That may explain why Kelis sported a Forever 21 swimsuit (above) at the beach with her friends...

The swimsuit Kelis is wearing if Forever 21's Geo Studded Bandeau top and Bikini bottom. Both pieces retail for $12.80.

This summer Forever 21 introduced swimsuits to their collection of low-cost fashion goodies. Check out some more 80's retro swimsuits below that wont break the bank.

  1. Knowing Forever 21, that's probably a really flagrant designer knock-off
