Published May 04, 2009After six years of marriage, one of the most interesting couples in hip-hop, Nas and Kelis, are reportedly filing for divorce, Vibe reports. In a statement, Kelis's spokesperson validated the report, saying, "I can confirm that she has filed for divorce. We request the media to respect her privacy during this very difficult time." Citing irreconcilable differences, Kelis filed for divorce on Thursday (April 30).
This comes while the couple were expecting their first child together. Kelis is seven months pregnant with the couple's son. They have been married since 2003. While this news is unfortunate, it's hardly surprising considering the strong personalities of both involved. On the bright side, maybe this experience will get both artists back on track and produce great music.
