‘Everyone Acts Like I’m The Only Person Who Ever Filed For Divorce:’ Kelis Talks Nas Split & Dating Post Divorce

Kelis Rogers has been a busy bee these days. In addition to releasing her new album, “Food,” she is also the star of a new show on The Cooking Channel titled “Saucy & Sweet.” While promoting her projects in New York City, the singer-turned-chef stopped by Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club where she discussed her split from Nas, dating post divorce and the nasty rumors, which have been floating around about her.

“I went to culinary school about four years ago. I love to cook. Everything just kind of came together,” she explained. “Between music and food, it all just kind of comes together anyway. At a good party, there’s always food and music. I have been doing music for so long, I just felt like doing something else and challenge myself. It was one of the best things I’ve ever done. I had a great time.”

The singer also discussed what separates her from other artists and why there’s usually such a long period of time between music releases.

“I don’t really get low, I just don’t rush stuff out the way people do. Like, I usually put an album out every three to four years. I tour it, make money, hang out. I have a kid, so you know, I like to live my life.”

As for what her current relationship with ex-husband, Nas, is like, Kelis says they’re in a positive place.

“We’re good,” she confessed. “Everyone acts like I’m the only person who ever filed for divorce. It happens.”

“At the end of the day, we were married for a fairly long time. We have a child together. And that is what it is.”

Though the former hip hop power couple has been divorced since 2010, talk of their split was reignited two summers ago when Nas released the art work for his 2012 album, “Life Is Good,” in which he posed with what appeared to be Kelis’ signature green wedding dress.

“It was the slip the to petticoat of my dress [that he posed with],” Kelis clarified. “I actually have my dress and it’s fabulous. It looks nothing like what’s on the cover.”

The 34-year-old mom also says that she has been dating since the divorce four years ago and admits that she has run into a few suitors who appeared to have the potential to sweep her off of her feet like Nas once did.

“I’m actually in a really good place right now. It’s nice. My son is four, actually he’ll almost be five. So everything is kind of settled, I’m in my mommyhood. I feel good. I got an album out and I feel like I can sort of do that… you know, date and take it easy.”

She adds that a man with a sense of humor is always a plus—and height doesn’t hurt either.

“I like to laugh. I think that’s always the easiest thing for a woman. You know, find someone who makes you laugh and it’s like, okay.”

“I think it should be easy and it shouldn’t be complicated. We’re adults and it shouldn’t take a lot of explanations and sort of like, making it work. It either does or it doesn’t.”

Kelis also discussed those ugly rumors that her son isn’t actually by Nas.

“I never heard that one, actually,” she revealed. “To be honest, I don’t listen to a lot of stuff about me. I don’t read a lot of stuff about me. It doesn’t impact how I live my day. I’m sure there’s stuff out there, people say stuff.”

    Kelis can be dangerous. People pls. be very careful. If the industry works in way, I give you my energy and take the enrgy from others through sex or attention, ok, she does what the whole industry does. And Kelis is very talented. I know about a man who was destroyd after 6 months beeing in love with her. He was sucked off. He just said, the feeling was stronger when he got her attention. There are a lot of information how she lives her life. Easy said, sex is like drinking water for her. Some will share infos but who trust them. If the whole world agree with it, ok, but to involve jesus and God to this, not sure. Dont get caught from her. Just simple.

    If Kelis had a gap in her teeth she would look just like Keisha Cole, especially when watching her breakfast club interview.

    Better with age, very cute lady! We loved Kelis and Nas together but he was cheating on her left and right.

    I commend her for going against the grain and leaving a cheating man that she couldn’t tolerate. Another post was just encouraging us to stay with these ninja’s.

    She reminds me a little bit of singer/actress Irene Cara (Fame/Sparkle).
