Singer Kelis has finally opened up on her abusive relationship with rapper NAS.
According to her Nas abused her verbally, mentally, and physically during their 2005 to 2009 marriage. She described the marriage as “really toxic” in her first public interview about her failed marriage as, Kelis said, she would have probably remained married to him had she not gotten pregnant. Speaking with Hollywood Unlocked Kelis said;”I didn’t file for divorce because he cheated. He’s been cheating for two years and I didn’t file. because I knew that. . .There was a lot of drinking. There was a lot of mental and physical abuse. . . . I would have probably stayed longer had I not been pregnant.
There was a lot of mental and physical abuse. I had bruises all over my body … it was really toxic … at seven months’ pregnant I was terrified. I was like, I cannot bring a person into this. I can’t control this. I’ve got to get out. It wasn’t good, ever, but it progressively got worse. We had really intense highs and really intense lows, it was never normal … We were drinking too much, smoking too much, spending too much … We lived hard and because of that, when that comes down, it goes really low. We would fight. I never just sat there … Did he hit me? M-hmm [nods]. Did I hit him back? M-hmm [nods]. He would black out – he would drink way too much … a lot of stuff, he may not remember. We would have, literally, the worst night ever, and we would wake up the next day, and it’s like it never happened.” Watch the interview below;
