Nas + Kelis To Sue Miami?

Rapper NAS and his R+B singer wife KELIS are reportedly threatening to launch a $100 million (GBP50 million) lawsuit against the city of Miami, Florida - accusing officials of racial profiling.

Kelis' husband Nas - real name Nasir Jones - was reportedly talking to the undercover cops at the time of his wife's arrest.
And now the couple are said to be planning to sue city officials over claims they were unfairly targeted by police, according to
A source tells the website, "Kelis has been silent about everything thus far. She's waiting for the right time and then she'll explain exactly what happened."
