What Killed Singer Kelis Roger’s Husband? Illness & Health Details

Mike Mora, a photojournalist who passed away from cancer in March 2022, was Kelis’s husband. In 2014, Kelis and Mora got married; they have a boy and a daughter.

Since January 2020, Kelis and Mora have kept and nurtured their children on a remote farm in Temecula, California, just outside of Los Angeles.

Mora sought the advice of three professionals and underwent an endoscopic biopsy before receiving the news that she had gastric adenocarcinoma or stage 4 stomach cancer.

Despite the news, Mora was optimistic about the future and felt that by sharing his story, he would be able to help others who were going through something similar. “I have given this a lot of thought before sharing. I don’t want people to feel bad for myself or my family for that reason.

Life is full of unforeseen circumstances, so I’m writing this, he said. “I never thought I’d experience this.” I’m 36 years old, have three kids, and my wife adores me.

“I want to be able to help anyone who might experience something similar, perhaps. By proving that it is possible to succeed.”

Six months after receiving a Stage 4 stomach cancer diagnosis, he went away.

The actress has disappeared from social media since her husband’s passing. On Wednesday, she returned to the stage with a 44-second film of gentle ocean waves caressing a sandy beach.

The Black-ish actor Yara Shahidi and singer Tamar Braxton were among the fans who expressed their support for the 42-year-decision old’s to leave out commentary and let the footage speak for itself.

 

What Is Kelis Roger’s Ethnicity? Explored

American singer Kelis is of mixed racial and ethnic heritage. Her father, Kenneth, was a Pentecostal minister and jazz pianist who taught at Wesleyan University.

On the other side, Kelis was inspired to pursue a singing career by her mother Eveliss, a Chinese-Puerto Rican fashion designer.

Along with her three sisters, Kelis Rogers was born and raised in the Frederick Douglass Houses in Manhattan’s Harlem neighborhood. The third of Mora’s four daughters are named Kelis.

In a conversation, Kelis mentioned: “I consider myself black despite the fact that my mother is half Chinese and half Puerto Rican. The man who raised me is black.”

Kenneth and Iveliss, her parents’ names, were combined to create her given name, Kelis. At the age of 14, she was accepted to the Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music, Art, and Performing Arts in New York thanks to the influence of her mother.

She joined the Girls Choir of Harlem and picked up the saxophone there. After finishing high school in 1997, Kelis contributed background vocals on the album track “Fairytalez” by the American hip-hop group Gravediggaz.

Who Are Kelis’s Children, Knight-Jones, Sheperd Mora, And Galilee Mora Explored

Nas Jones and Mike Mora, Kelis’s two husbands, are the parents of three kids in all. In July 2009, Kelis gave birth to Knight, her first child with Nas.

She had already cut ties with Nas before he was born. The couple was engaged in a custody battle for their child.

In April 2018, Kelis claimed that Nas was not an involved father and that she had not received “a single penny” in child support from him since 2012.

He doesn’t take part, she continued. “He shows up when it’s fun and there’s a great photo opportunity. Just though your sperm was utilized, I don’t think it should be split equally.”

The couple selected joint legal and physical custody, according to TMZ. According to court documents, the ex-couple specified which holidays each spent with the child; Nas did so on Father’s Day, while Kelis did so on Mother’s Day.

A birthday custody arrangement was also reached, with his mother having custody on odd years and his father having custody on even years.
