Kelis Sets The Record Straight While Claping Back At Nas' Scorching 7-Page Exposé Over Custody Drama

We all knew this was coming

It's no secret that a lot went down in the five-year marriage between Nas and Kelis.

The pair wed in 2005, after dating for two years; Kelis filed for divorce in 2009 when she was 7 months pregnant with their son Knight, insisting that Nas had cheated on her.

And it has been a real rollercoaster ever since.

Not long ago, Kelis claimed that her ex-husband used to put his hands on her. 

“When the [infamous] Rihanna and Chris Brown pictures came out I thought about coming out because I also had bruises all over my body,” she told Hollywood Unlocked. “But I didn’t say anything because I’m private. But seeing her the way she looked and then looking at myself… I felt embarrassed.”


As to why she had kept this under wraps, she had explained that "it was a matter of privacy” and she has been determined to “make it work,” until their April 2009 split.

“His memory is definitely faulty. I’ve waited 9 years to say anything. I have never talked about this man. The amount of airing out that I could do and don’t do is what our kids will find out,” she had continued.

Singer/songwriter turned chef Kelis has finally broken her silence on her violent marriage with legendary rapper Nas and the current status of their custody battle.

Nas remained quiet about his side of her two-hour long tell-all interview until last week.

Taking to Instagram, Nas shared in a 7 page essay: “The Price i Pay To See My Son. And apologies in advance for the typos as I am speaking from the heart as a man who has had enough. Today I got a call from essence about my ex wife doing another sad fictitious story. Nothing surprises me anymore, including this. This is what your life has come to sis?”

“Exploiting some people’s Real struggle and pain…just to get at me….to get attention ? Fame? Another fight against men? We are a human family and we should be better examples for our son. Why is there even a issue for me to have time with my son. A son needs his father. So many absentee fathers out here and here i am being attacked by your accusations simply because i got us in court to help fix this the custody matter?”

“Why did i have to take you to court to see our son? Why when i win the joint custody ( which is a win for both of us and our son, it helps us with both our schedules) why do you feel thats an attack on you? Is it control ?,” he continued. “Why do you need to have control over my life? because we’re not together? Then why? Is this being rewarded and praised by people who are being taken advantage of by you and your lies?”


While we don’t know which side to choose, Kelis found time to clap back. 

“My child is beautiful and safe and very loved,” Kelis wrote, seemingly in response to her former flame’s claims. “The fight is not about [their son Knight] in actuality. It’s just being made to look like it is… what’s done in the dark will always come to light, but thanks babe.”

Just love exploring the world with my little ones by my side 🌎

Plus, one fan claimed she seems like a good vibe and Kelis co-signed this. Another asked her to stop lying and Kelis clapped back, asking her to “stop being ridiculous.” The singer also agreed with another supporter who said she “[hates] women who use babies as pawns and checks.” 
#ClapbackSeason: #Kelis had time today! 👀👀 #Nas

Hm.


All we can say is that we hope these two can managed to keep it cordial and comfortable for their son as they co-parent. Aw.
