Kelis has filed for divorce from fellow rapper Nas, according to reports.
The Milkshake star is currently seven months pregnant with their child.
A rep for Kelis apparently said: “I can confirm she has filed for divorce. We request the media to respect her privacy during this very difficult time.”
It is claimed attorney Laura Wasser (who has also represented Britney Spears) filed a divorce petition on behalf of Kelis on Thursday, April 30.
The court documents apparently state the catch-all “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the split between the music stars.
Nas and Kelis have been together for nearly seven years since meeting on a video shoot and have been married since January 2005.
Asked recently by MTV about Kelis, Nas said: “She’s great, man. She’s doing good. [We are deciding between] a few baby names. It’s kinda hard.”
