Kelis details the highs and lows during her relationship with Nas.
Kelis notes that Nas had a drinking problem, which would lead to mental and physical abuse, stating that he would black-out and not remember them having “the worst night ever.” Detailing the extent of the abuse she experienced, Kelis recalls when Rihanna’s domestic abuse photos were publicized as she hesitated to come out about her own situation. “I had bruises all over my body at that time,” noted the singer, insisting that she did not speak sooner because she believed they could work it out. She claims that the abuse was not one-sided as she fought back on separate occasions but she never started any physical fights.
The “Milkshake” singer remarks that much of their conflicts came from Nas’ drinking habit, saying she was madly in love with him but that he would become aggressive when he drank. Kelis speaks for over an hour about her relationship with Nas in the video below.
