Here, pictured in happier times, are Nas and Kelis. The two were married for 5 years before filing for divorce in 2009. It’s been a minute since I checked in on what Kelis has been up to since she came out with allegations that Nas was physically and mentally abusive during their relationship. When that came out, Nas was heated, denied the allegations and posted an exhaustive 7-part series of Instagram posts defending his honor, reading Kelis for filth, and going into way too much detail about their grueling custody battle over their 9-year-old son Knight (last names are so last year). That was last September. According to The Blast, things have heated up again as Kelis embarks on a new journey in her life as a milkshake farmer in Colombia. And she’s bringing Knight along for the ride, despite Nas’ objections.
The Blast says Nas has filed court documents asking for Kelis to be found in contempt of their custody agreement. He claims she took Knight out of the country without his knowledge or consent.
Nas says Kelis told him she intends to stay in Colombia, and plans to tend to a farm with her husband, who she claims is Colombian. Nas says he only recently learned Kelis left Los Angeles and allegedly took their son out of private school and plans to homeschool the child.
“On Christmas, Petitioner informed me by text message that although her ‘plan’ had been to bring the minor child back to me in Los Angeles for New Year’s, the plan had changed. She then stated that the new plan was to come back on January 4, 2019.”
Apparently Kelis didn’t come back on the 4th as promised, but instead returned on the 14th. Nas provided text messages to support his claims. Meanwhile, Kelis is stunting up and down Instagram, living her best life as a humble farmer’s wife.
Kelis has violated their custody agreement before (17 times since January 2018 by his count), and has refused to pay $8,000 in sanctions that she was ordered to pay. TMZ says Nas was supposed to spend Father’s Day, Halloween, and Thanksgiving with Knight last year, but was unable to do so. He also claims that he was unable to contact his son during the time he was in Colombia. Sounds like a fucking mess all around. But maybe I can help, if Nas doesn’t want Knight moving off to a farm in Colombia, maybe Kelis will consider adopting me. Knight has his own horse there!
