Hip-hop supercouple Nas and Kelis are to divorce just months before the birth of their first child together.
Kelis has filed papers via top divorce lawyer Laura Wasser, citing "irreconcilable differences" and a spokesperson for the Milkshake hitmaker tells Vibe.com, "I can confirm that she has filed for divorce. We request the media to respect her privacy during this very difficult time."
Kelis is expecting the now-estranged couple's son at the end of the summer (09).
Nas has a teenage daughter from a previous relationship.
The couple met at an MTV Video Music Awards afterparty in 2002 and they wed in Atlanta, Georgia in July, 2003.
