They are in a better place. Nas and Kelis have reportedly burried the past and are moving forward.
Speaking candidly about their divorce, public perception and some not so good moments, Nas says Kelis really got a bad rap and that should not have been the case.
“She’s a great girl and she caught a bad rap in the whole thing,” Nas says of their divorce. “It wasn’t fair though. I love that people ride with me but at the end of the day, they were too harsh. People didn’t really understand.”
Admitting there were instances of him clearing out a house and her doing things in spite, Nas says it took them awhile to get to a good place.
“It took a while to get there,” Nas told Hot 97 Tuesday before admitting the divorce lawyers and hype surrounding the divorce played into there being more problems. “We had some of the biggest divorce lawyers in L.A. When you’re dealing with divorce, there’s anger and there’s hurt. So you go and get the best representation you could get.”
While Nas and Kelis are better now, he admits he didn’t tell her about using her wedding dress on his album cover until the last minute.
“I told her two weeks before it went out,” he joked.
