Nas has made headlines quite a bit in the last two of weeks, but it hasn’t been for some amazing new music project or for a new movie that he’s starring in. Instead, he’s being mentioned by a couple of women who have played major roles in his life. Just yesterday we told you that his ex and mother of his 19-year-old daughter, Carmen Bryan, expressed concerns about his mental health. Now, his ex-wife, Kelis Rogers, is also discussing the iconic Queens rapper.
“I’ve been divorced for almost five years,” the “Bossy” singer told The Guardian Guide. “It’s over, I’m over it.”
Though she says their relationship is over, she says her ex-husband’s decision to speak openly about their breakup on his last album, “Life Is Good,” forced her to speak about it.
“But what I would say is that last year I was made more aware of it because my ex-husband decided to talk about stuff that I hadn’t shared with the world.”
“He slipped my wedding dress on to his album cover [2012's Life Is Good],” she explained. “So now I have to talk about it! I had no idea it was happening, I was like, ‘What the…?’”
While Kelis admits that the album forced her to discuss some things about her breakup, she says that talking about it didn’t really bother her too much.
“It didn’t affect my life. I’m not living that life now. I’m super-content and at peace.”
The Grammy Award nominee also discussed being labeled as an R&B artist.
“I was never an R&B artist. People coined me one but that’s because, especially if you’re in the States, if you’re black and you sing, then you’re R&B.”
As for her musical future, Kelis says she’s not sure if she’ll put out another album.
“I might make another album. I might make 10 more albums. I might never make another album again. It depends on how the mood suits me. I’m not declaring retirement but I’m just saying that I don’t have any musical ambitions any more.”
“After ‘Kelis Was Here’ I was done. I was like, ‘I will never put out another record again, I hate this business, I hate all these people.’ I was in this race that I didn’t even realise that I was in. I woke up and ten years had passed. That was never my plan. My desire was never to put out albums, it was to do musical theatre!”

It’s a fresh start for some of Hollywood’s most notable names in 2014. While heartbreak came knocking on their door, it’s not all doom and gloom for these stunners. With a new year comes new opportunities to find the loves of their lives. So in honor of these strong, resilient women, we take a look at 2014′s newly single celebrities.
‘This Is Going To Be An Interesting Valentine’s Day:’ Keri Hilson Sort Of Confirms Serge Ibaka Split
Back in January we reported on rumors that Keri Hilson and Oklahoma City Thunder player Serge Ibaka parted ways. Unfortunately, it appears that those rumors are true. Keri sort of, kind of, confirmed her split to The Jasmine Brand and it looks like she plans on throwing herself back into her music now that things with Serge have gone awry.
“This is going to be an interesting Valentine’s Day,” she said. “That’s all I’ll say. It’s going to be interesting. I’m working, I’m just busy, I’m busy. I feel like right now, music is my boyfriend. That’s how I feel, right now. So, I don’t know.”
She also had a few words of encouragement for single ladies who haven’t met Mr. Right yet.
“Know who you are. Umm, never drop your standards, for anyone. That’s it. And I mean that in every sense of the relationship. Business, you know whatever, if there’s a certain standard that you uphold, and you’re so strong-minded. There are some things that you [can] tweak in a relationship, but not your standard. Not that.”
Keri also discussed the difficulty of going through a public breakup.
“That can be difficult,” she told HipHollywood. “It can be difficult. I mean you can always do without any facet of your life being exposed and dealing with it. Sometimes you wanna deal privately and you’re not really given that option all of the time.”
Keri is one of those celebrities who for the most part enjoys keeping her business under wraps, so we’re not shocked that she didn’t directly confirm the breakup, but we catch her drift. It’s unfortunate that their love didn’t last, but maybe it’s all for the best.
Check out a clip from Keri’s interview on the next page. Thoughts?
It looks like one celebrity couple may have decided to throw in the towel. According to Power 105.1′s Cherry Martinez, singer Keri Hilson and her baller boo, Serge Ibaka, are through.
Sources close to the situation claim that the couple parted ways around the start of the new year and although this wouldn’t be the first time the two split, it appears to be for good this time. The source went on to say that the breakup is especially heartbreaking for Keri, who supposedly “built her whole world” around the Oklahoma City Thunder player and put her album on hold so that she could travel the country with him.
The breakup has yet to be officially confirmed by Keri and Serge, but some believe that the singer’s recent Instagram posts may offer insight into the split. One can only hope that the rumors are another false alarm. Back in September rumors began circulating about a split, buy Serge quickly silenced those whispers when he posted an image to his Instagram page that showed the two were very much still together. During happier times, Keri confessed that she believed Serge was a “gift from God.”
“Absolutely,” she confessed. And I also felt like God is a comedian, for real. He gave me everything I wanted and everything I thought I didn’t want. You know? He’s like ‘Ha! You’ve got to trust me. Stop putting limits on who I am and what I do.’ I absolutely had limits- I had parameters. I had a huge blockage on the types of guys I would date and just when I was-I had tweeted something, ‘I guess it’s time for me to adjust the parameters of dating,’ or something like that, and it was months before meeting him actually, but it was just saying that sometimes you have to trust God and stop putting rules and limits and parameters on things. The moment I accepted that, was the moment he came my way.”
We’ll keep you posted as this story develops.
There was a lot of great celebrity news to come out of 2013. But, unfortunately, not everything was sunshine and roses. A number of notable couples called it a quits this year. From two Kardashian relationships coming to an end to some longtime lovers parting ways, we take a look at some of the saddest celebrity breakups of the past 12 months.

If there’s one couple that we were really sad to see throw in the towel, it was Malcolm-Jamal Warner and Regina King. I mean, they seemed to perfect together. It’s difficult to imagine what could’ve possibly gone wrong. But as most of us who have been long-term relationships before know, getting together is simple; staying together is where things get a little tricky. Breakup rumors surrounding the couple began swirling back in March, but King quickly took to Twitter in what some perceived as an attempt at putting those whispers to bed.
“Hey everybody PLEASE don’t believe everything you read. Me & @MalcolmJamalWar are good. Life Happens. Forward motion. Godspeed,” the “Southland” actress tweeted.
Though damage control tweet seemed to keep some at bay, folks like us were busy trying to figure out whether or not her tweet meant that they’re good and still together or good it broken up. Unfortunately, it turns out that she meant the latter. Their split was later confirmed. Macolm-Jamal recently opened up to Sister 2 Sister about the split.
“I mean, you try not to date in the spotlight. I think what Regina and I—you know, we had been together for several years before people realized we were together. So unfortunately our breakup got more coverage than our being together, and that kind of sucked ‘cause we spent so much time trying to keep it out of the public eye, and then the breakup was so much in the public eye. So all relationships have their share of obstacles, and you just try not to have yours plastered.”
He adds that he still maintains a relationship with Regina’s son.
“We’re all very cool.”
Though we’re sad they they’re no longer together, it’s great to see that they remain amicable. And who knows, maybe somewhere down the line they will be able to iron out their differences and get back together. Speaking of Regina King, according to Deadline she’s set to star in a new FX series titled, “The Strain.”

Last week Real Housewives of Atlanta star Porsha Stewart revealed that her divorce from estranged husband, Kordell Stewart, would be finalized soon.
“In the next month, it should be actually over,” the bubbly reality star said during a recent interview.
Although the drama surrounding her actual divorce from Kordell may be coming to a close, it appears that their bickering may go one for little bit longer. Kordell recently did an interview with Atlanta’s V-103, insisting that the pair had plenty of marital issues before he filed for a “surprise” divorce last year—including Porsha’s alleged failure to become “comfortable” with raising his son.
“I didn’t hear the interview, and I really don’t care to comment on anything Kordell has to say. He’s saying it for a reason and wants everybody to think of me in one way. At the end of day, Kordell knew who I was to him and what I did and how I felt about his son. I don’t have to justify that at all,” Porsha said last week.
To make matters worse, during the most recent episode of RHOA, Porsha hinted that her ex-husband may have been physically abusive at some point and referred to him as a “queen.” After all of that, it seems clear that it was Kordell’s turn to “take a jab” and it appears that is exactly what he did. Last night the former Pittsburgh Steelers player shared an image to his Instagram page that read:
“No hoodrat formed against me shall prosper.”
He later erased the post. Now, we probably wouldn’t bet our last 10 bucks that Kordell was taking shots at Porsha, but honestly, who else would he be referring to?

If you’ve ever been with a guy, and after dating him for a long while you break up and he proposes to the next chick, you’re not alone. It happens all the time, and many of us are left wondering, ‘why did I have to be the one before THE ONE?’ But men, both everyday Joe’s and famous fellas too, do things like this, and some ladies do too. They won’t get to commit to one guy, but in the interest of wanting to get married and start a family (and believing in “happily ever after”), will marry the next guy they meet. Need examples? Here are nine celebs who got engaged right after they left a long-time love.
Is there a such thing as a “break-up season?” We haven’t done any studies on the phenomenon but it sure seems like a lot of celebrity couples have called it quits this fall. Maybe it’s the end of swimsuit season or the cold weather. What do you think? Is there a time of year when you’re more likely to lose your boo? Seems like that’s the case for these pairs.
Just yesterday we told you that the wife of famed producer Timbaland filed for divorce after just five years of marriage. Unfortunately, it looks like Master P’s wife, Sonya Miiller is singing a similar tune.
According to TMZ, Sonya is petitioning for a divorce from her music mogul hubby after twenty-four years of marriage. Court documents reveal that Sonya is claiming that the marriage is broken due to “irreconcilable differences.” She is requesting full custody of their four underage children. In addition to full custody, Sonya is requesting spousal support.
What’s interesting though, is back in 2011 many thought that the couple had already divorced because Sonya took her estranged husband to court for child support. It turns out that the former couple has been separated for a very long time, but up until recently, neither made steps towards actually filing for divorce. In addition to their four minor children, they also share 24-year-old son, Romeo Miller. The pair have yet to publicly comment on the split.
They’ve been together for a very long time, hopefully they can find a way to handle the divorce amicably.
