UPDATE: Apparently Kelis was overseas celebrating her decision to divorce her hubby Nas. Seems like Kelis is very popular in Europe and Russia so she spends a lot of time there when she can. According to egyptsaidso.com, Kelis had a celebratory dinner with some girlfriends where she toasted to her upcoming divorce and said “Here’s to taking that motherf*$%#@ for everything he has!” and here’s the shocker…Pregnant Kelis was allegedly drinking.

And in Nas’ corner, sources close to Nas’ camp say that a sex tape of Kelis and another man is the reason why the couple’s relationship went downhill. ¬†Nas is said to have been publicly humiliated by the tape although Kelis assured him it wasn’t during their marriage. Both camps say he hasn’t been able to move past the incident and has been distant and cruel to Kelis ever since.

We’ve heard in the past that Nas is not crazy about Kelis’ friendship with actress Dania Ramirez.

Apparently Nas thinks Dania is a bad influence on Kelis because when they’re together they run around town like they are single. He’s told folks that everytime Kelis goes out west to hang with Dania, she gets into trouble or hangs with a crowd of people who hop around to selacious private parties at the homes of various Hollywood A & B listers as well as at the home of professional athletes.

UPDATE: New details are emerging regarding Kelis and Nas divorce drama. ¬†According to ballerstatus.com, former XXL editor-in-chief Elliott Wilson held an interview with Angela Yee’s Shade 45 satellite radio show, and revealed that the couple got into an argument last week over a text message and photos that Kelis found:

Here’s what was revealed:

On the women Nas was cheating on his pregnant wife with:

“She had found a certain young lady’s photos and inappropriate text, correspondence between a certain young lady on the side … I don’t believe it’s a famous woman. I believe it’s a black chick from Virginia who may be a promoter of some sort, but definitely not a famous chick..”

On the verbal abuse allegations:

“The biggest issue I heard is a lot of him just talking to her crazy…besides physicaly abusive they can be verbally abusive…A lot of the drama I’m hearing had to do with that aspect too.”

On the breaking point:

“To find out your man’s cheating on you when your seven months pregnant in a blatant way makes Kelis feel like this is the breaking point and she’s calling the lawyer.”

UPDATE: We just came across this video of Nas following the divorce announcement:

We’ve heard this one before, but this time around it seems like it’s the real deal, Nas and Kelis are separating after three years of marriage.

According to vibe.com, the couple have split. “I can confirm that she has filed for divorce,” a spokesperson for Kelis told VIBE. “We request the media to respect her privacy during this very difficult time.” At around 3:45pm PST, high-powered attorney Laura Wasser (who has also represented Britney Spears, Angelina Jolie, and Stevie Wonder) filed a divorce petition today on behalf of Kelis, citing irreconciable differences.

Nas and Kelis may be divorcing.

The bombshell comes amid recent reports that the acclaimed rhymer and influential R&B vixen were expecting their first child together-a son. Kelis is currently seven months pregnant.

Check out the couple in happier times:

Apparently the couple is already living separately with Nas staying in his New Jersey mansion, and Kelis splitting her time between the Atlanta house and L.A.
