New York rapper Nas is in rare form. The hip-hop veteran has come forward with an emotionally-driven open letter about his publicized child support battle with ex-wife Kelis.
Nasir Jones went to Instagram Thursday (September 6) with the multi-post must-read letter.
Despite a rocky split, Nas and Kelis spent nearly four years together.
In 2003, he and R&B singer Kelis began the relationship. They tied the knot in 2005, making national headlines. Their marriage was short-lived, though and just 4 years later Kelis filed for divorce. A spokesperson recalled her reasoning as “irreconcilable differences”, and the divorce was finalized in May of 2010. Why these abuse allegations were just made public now is unknown, and is somewhat peculiar considering their relationship ended almost a decade ago now. (SOHH)
Recently, Kelis made headlines after breaking her silence on their marriage.
“There was a lot of mental and physical abuse”, Kelis said. “His memory is definitely faulty. I’ve waited 9 years to say anything. I have never talked about this man. The amount of airing out that I could do and don’t do is what our kids will find out. … We had really intense highs and really intense lows. It was never normal. An intense high would be when money was rolling in. But I was 22 when I met him. We were drinking a lot, getting high a lot. So when that comes down, it was bad.” (The Hollywood Unlocked)
