Nas Shares Rare Picture Of 8-Year-Old Son Knight Amid Messy Custody Battle With Ex-Wife Kelis

Nas shared what may be his very first picture of him chilling with his son, Knight Jones, and daughter Destiny Jones. 

The Queens, New York emcee posed with his two offspring as he celebrity his birthday at one of his business establishments. 

Dressed in a fly white suit, the elusive rapper hugged his kids with the caption: “You both keep me grounded.”

The rare family photo was shared after Nas went on a savage rant against his ex-wife Kelis, who spoke with Essence to relay “another sad fictitious story” about him.

Nas accused her of keeping their 8-year-old son away from him and doing anything she can to make his life horrible after their 2009 split. 

🤲🏾 you both keep me grounded

He wrote a 7-page Instagram essay blasting the “Milkshake” singer. 

In the first one, he shared: “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? ”

Nas went on to explain: “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 an 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? ”

He applauded the former couples who have managed to stay amicable and added: “To all separated couples out there who are cordial and co-parent nicely GOOD FOR YOU. I wish that were me. I’m the most chill cool parent there is. Who has time to argue? About what? It’s about our little guy. You haven’t had to deal with what I’ve been dealing with. Trust me.”

This is what it’s all about. Pure Peace & Pure Love. Pure Happiness! ❤️ #tb #fathersandsons

He concluded by: “I’m a mild-mannered god fearing very decent human being who tries his hardest to please everyone. It’s my nature. I’ve seen this too many times before. And there were times I thought Kelis my ex-wife was not of this type. This is the type of antics that deceive people and people mistakenly call it strong. Seems I always had more belief in you than you do for yourself. I instilled strength in my daughter who you were already so jealous of and treated poorly. Being jealous & verbally abusive to a Little girl.”

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

Earlier this year, Kelis accused her ex-husband of putting his hands on her.

 “When the Rihanna and Chris Brown pictures came out I thought about coming out because I also had bruises all over my body,” Kelis previously 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.”

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

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.

BUILDING WITH KNIGHT x @johnseymour_nyc Our talks are FIRE. Peace to the DADS. #NASIR
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.
