Filed under : Entertainment, Music

So earlier this month, Queensbridge rapper, Nas sent shock-waves when he unveiled the cover to his upcoming 10th studio album,  Life Is Good, due July 17.

*I CANNOT wait for this album to drop*!

The controversial cover features Nas in a white suit holding the green wedding dress that his ex-wife, singer Kelis wore when they tied the knot back in January of 2005 . In April 2009 she filed for divorce, citing “irreconcilable differences”. She was seven months pregnant at the time and subsequently gave birth to the couple’s son, names Knight.

On July 23, a Judge in New York City ordered Nas to pay Kelis $55,000 per month in child and spousal support.The couple’s divorce was finalized May 29, 2010

Fast forward to April of this year, Nas reveals in his VH1 Behind the Music special,that Kelis left the dress behind after  suddenly moving out and subsequently filing for divorce.

 Well now his ex-wife, who was on the bill for this year’s Isle of Wight festival held this weekend, caught up with NME, who asked what her thoughts were on her ex-hubby’s artwork:

“My feelings about it are not really relevant, but you know at the end of the day Nas is an artist. And for whatever it’s worth he’s one of the greatest, and especially for what it is he does. So for me, I feel like especially for someone in hip-hop to kind of be genuine and honest, whatever the honesty is about, I think it’s awesome. So my feelings about it aren’t really necessarily valid, it’s just the fact that as an artist I can respect that he wears his feelings on his sleeve.”
