Pregnant Kelis and Nas Are Getting Divorced
Kelis’ milkshake won’t be bringing Nas to the yard anymore.
E! Online reports that the R&B singer—full name Kelis Rogers-Jones—has split up with her rapper husband (full name Nasir bin Olu Dara Jones).
“I can confirm that she has filed for divorce,” a rep for Kelis says. “We request the media to respect her privacy during this very difficult time.”
Rogers-Jones cites irreconcilable differences in her divorce petition.
Further complicating matters, the now-estranged couple are expecting their first child, a son, this summer. Kelis is asking for spousal and child support, as well as joint custody of the child-to-be.
The couple wed on January 8, 2008, after meeting at an afterparty for the 2002 MTV Video Music Awards hosted by hip-hop impresario Sean “Diddy” Combs.
