Are Nas and Kelis getting back together? Nas and Kelis shocked a lot of people when they announced they were getting a divorce. Although there has been rumors that the marriage was a rocky one, the former couple seemed so happy together and extremely blissful in the public eye. Unfortunately, the two called it quits after the birth of their son Knight. While neither explained why their marriage was ending at first, Nas admitted last year that the marriage wasn’t an easy one, but his cheating only made matter worse and played a huge role in why they divorced. When Nas decided to put Kelis’ wedding dress on the cover of his last album Life is Good, he made it clear that he was still working on getting over the break up.

The divorce was a messy one and Nas and Kelis battled over child support like foes. However, last year reports surfaced that both were spotted together on what looked like dates, and people began to anticipate that they were working on possibly getting back together.

As we recently reported, Nas denied that they were back on last year, but a little birdie told us that Nas did want to give the relationship another try, however, Kelis found it impossible to get past the fact that he stepped outside of the marriage.

Regardless, Nas and Kelis continue to spend time together in the public eye, so the rumors of these two getting back together have been consistent.

In a recent interview with Hot 97, Nas opened up to Angie Martinez and speaks on what his relationship status with Kelis really is.

He says:

“We’re back together as friends. We were not friends, we were not the best of friends for a long time. It was crazy.

“We’re friends now. And that’s what it is. We’re not together. We’re friends though. So shout out to her. I didn’t want to piss her off too much with the dress [on the album cover]. She kind of handled it like a trooper.

“She handled it like a trooper. I even said, ‘Yo, should we try this again?’ (Laughs)

“We had all kinds of talks [about getting back together] but I’m glad to be back at that place.”


Nas was also recently named as the greatest rapper of all time by CNN. He admits he agrees with the title and talks about how great his relationship is with his father.
