While she's currently pregnant with their first child—a boy—Kelis has filed for divorce from her husband of more than four years, Nas. A press rep for the star confirmed the split with E! News yesterday, adding, "We request the media to respect her privacy during this very difficult time."
Nas and Kelis were married in Atlanta on January 8, 2005. They originally met at a Diddy-hosted afterparty for the 2002 MTV Video Music Awards. According to Vibe.com, the latter has cited irreconcilable differences for the divorce. As a result, she's asking for spousal and child support, along with joint custody of the former couple's baby.
