Nas and Kelis separated back in 2009, and Kelis said she was physically abused by the rapper. But Nas still has love for his ex-wife. “I’ve been through a whole lot, and no one really gave me advice on how to deal with what I was going through with a broken family,” he told the New York Post.
“I’m optimistic that things will get better. Certain things just have to develop into a better place. But I got love for my ex-wife.”
During the exes custody battle, Nas accused Kelis of keeping their son from him. Kelis accused Nas of being inconsistent in the young boys life. Last April Kelis accused Nas of beating her during their marriage.
“I remember so clearly when the pictures came out with that whole thing that happened with her and Chris Brown. And the only way I can describe it was like double-dutch. I felt like, ‘Do I jump in? Do I say it?’ Cause I had bruises all over my body at that time,” she said during an interview with Hollywood Unlocked.
“That day, I remember being in Atlanta sitting in the kitchen, and I wasn’t ready to walk.”
Nas denied the allegations in an open letter posted to Instagram.
