I’ll admit that I’m definitely one of the people who rode that Nas-and-Kelis-are-still-madly-in-love-and-are-going-to-get-back-together-someday wave. I always thought that they were an adorable couple. But truthfully, I could’ve just been romanticizing their split because we were left in the dark for so long regarding the dirty details regarding their break up. My desire for the hip-hop couple to reunite only intensified when the 39-year-old Queens rapper released his Life is Good album where he appeared on the cover, holding his ex-wife’s wedding gown and released songs that were obviously about his releationship with her such as, “Bye Baby.”
In an interview earlier this year, Nas even revealed that he and Kelis were working on their friendship and that he low-key tried to get back with her.
“We’re back together as friends. We were not the best of friends for a long time. We’re friends now and that’s what it is. We’re not together but we’re friends though. I even said, ‘yo, should we try this again?’ I’m like wow. We had all kinds of talks. You know how that is. We have a child. But we’re friends and I’m glad to be at that place. I don’t want no beef. No beef wit ya mama,” Nas honestly expressed.
Since then, there hasn’t been much said about the possibility of a romantic reunion between the pair. Well, until now, that is. One of Kelis’ Instagram followers expressed how happy they were to see Kelis back out in the spotlight and attempted to offer encouragement regarding her situation with ex-husband, Nas.
Surpisingly, Kelis responded to the fan’s well wishes, thanking them for their concern, but letting it be known that she’s not interested in reconciling with Nas because he’d been unfaithful to her.
Then, another fan chimed in, praising the “Jerk Ribs” singer for being real about her feelings and what happened.
And there you have it.
What do you think of Kelis using her Instagram page to address such a personal subject?
