The couple’s divorce was finalized in May 2010. Kelis has described her relationship with Nas as physically and mentally abusive, crediting the anticipated birth of her child as a factor in her decision to end her marriage. Kelis also recalled that the domestic violence incident between Rihanna and Chris Brown influenced her decision to leave Nas. After she saw pictures of Rihanna battered she felt embarrassed because she also had bruises all over her body, but she was hesitant to speak out. Nas replied to the accusations on social media, accusing Kelis of attempting to slander him in the time of a custody battle and accusing Kelis of abusing his daughter. In addition to the domestic abuse claims, she alleged that Nas’ drinking habit began to take a toll on their relationship, and he had been having adulterous affairs for two years.

In April 2018, Kelis claimed that until 2012, she had not seen “a single cent” from Nas in child support and he has not been an active parent. She explained, “He doesn’t participate. He shows up when it’s fun, he shows up when there’s a good photo-op… I don’t think it should be 50/50 just because you had sperm involved.” In March 2007, Kelis was detained by police in Miami Beach, Florida, and charged with disorderly conduct. The arrest report said an operation in which officers posed as prostitutes in the South Beach nightclub district was disrupted when Kelis started screaming racial profanities at them.
