Breaking The Silence: Kelis Says Her Relationship With Nas Involved ‘Mental & Physical Abuse’

After years staying private, Kelis is finally speaking out about her past relationship with Nas, and according to her, it was filled with “really intense highs and really intense lows.”

“There was a lot mental and physical abuse,” the singer turned chef told Hollywood Unlocked. “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.”

Nas and Kelis met at a MTV Video Music Awards after-party in 2002 and were married in 2005, according to E!.

Kelis went on to describe the physical abuse in their relationship saying, “Did he hit me?…..Mmm hmmm. Did I hit him back?…..Mmm hmmm.”

She said it was Rihanna‘s 2009 domestic violence incident with Chris Brown that finally pushed her to divorce Nas — this and the fact that she was pregnant and didn’t want to bring her son into the drama.

“When the Rihanna and Chris Brown pictures came out I thought about coming out because I also had bruises all over my body,” she said. “But I didn’t say anything because I’m private. But seeing her the way she looked and then looking at myself… I felt embarrassed.”

When considering other women going through similar situations, Kelis said, “Women can’t be afraid to fight.”

Donald Trump Endangers The U.S.'s 2026 World Cup Bid

U.S. soccer fans who were hoping for a “slight return,” will have to have wait and see if their President’s words were in violation a strict FIFA code. The U.S. Soccer Federation has been campaigning with Mexico and Canada on a joint North American bid for the hosting privileges the 2026 World Cup. Decisions the like are ten made several years, to incur the costs preparation. 

In tweeting his support the bid, Donald Trump may have committed illegal tampering. FIFA rules prohibit “any undue influence on the outcome,” for their decision making process. The irony is that a cleaning house never occurred after FIFA broke their own mandates in 2015. The FIFA Corruption Scandal uncovered several accepted bribes from high ranking ficials, one which counted towards the 2010 South Africa bid to the tune $10 million.

FIFA issued a statement pointing to the general rule book, in response to Trump’s public endorsement: “As a general rule, we cannot comment on specific statements in connection with the bidding process.”

“We can only refer to the FIFA Regulations for the selection the venue for the final competition the 2026 FIFA World Cup, and in particular to the Bid Rules Conduct incorporated therein.” Their statement does not necessarily read as a denunciation, but if the proposed bid falls through, we’ll know where to point. Thank you Mr. President.
