Kelis Opens Up About Violent Marriage and Custody Battle With Nas

Kelis opened up about her tumultuous marriage to Nas in an interview with Hollywood Unlocked, where she talked alleged mental and physical abuse, the extreme ups and downs of their relationship, and what parenting is—and should be—all about.

“There was a lot of mental and physical abuse,” said Kelis in a surprisingly candid revelation. The “Milkshake” singer has never been as vocal about her marriage, with the most striking claim previously coming from Nas, when he called Kelis “hostile” during the couple’s child custody hearings. These days, Kelis is a chef, happily re-married, and launching her new Bounty & Full brand.

“I’m living my life,” she said. “I’m cooking. I’m raising my kids and I’m very private.” The impulse to speak out about her ex-husband, Nas, might seem surprising, but Kelis seems like she genuinely needs to get some things off her chest—no matter how private a person she may be.

  1. Hip hop, rap has a serious case of amnesia & selective hearing. This is not new information. That's why she left him, cuz he was a damn woman beater. Like far too many of our famous actors and athletes.

  2. Alot of those commenting don't even remember when Nas and Kelis were together! LMAO! Nas is one of the best rappers of all time, BUT, he is human….and shouldn't be worshipped as a God like he could do no wrong! Only Nas, Kelis and God know the ultimate truth! Kelis kept silent for almost a decade, and never spoke negative about Nas, EVER! Y'all be too invested in these celebrities lives, stop dickriding and form your own opinion! Smh 😔
