Kelis Roger-Jones has filed divorce paper against her husband of 4 years, rapper Nas, real name Nasir bin Olu Dara Jones.
The 29-year-old singer who goes simply by the name, Kelis, is seven months pregnant with the couple’s first child. The two met in 2002 at an MTV Video Awards after party and married three years later in Atlanta.
Speaking to E! News online a rep for Kelis confirmed the break up stating, “I can confirm that she has filed for divorce… We request the media to respect her privacy during this very difficult time.”
The confirmation comes after Vibe.com broke the news of the divorce. The site obtained and posted the divorce petition online (see below), in which Kelis cites irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split.
