Nas Answers All Your Kelis Questions In Epic Instagram Confessional
publish date: 2018-09-06
Nas was apparently triggered by a call he got from someone at Essence magazine who told him his ex-wife Kelis was doing another story about their broken marriage.
The former couple has been entangled in a bitter custody battle over their 8-year-old son Knight for the better part of a year. Kelis has also accused him of being an alcoholic and claimed he physically and emotionally abused her.

In seven lengthy Instagram posts, the Hip Hop legend laid it all out for his 4.4 million followers and finally gave his side of the story.
'Today i got a call from essence about my ex wife doing another sad fictitious story. Nothing surprises me anymore, including this,' he begins. '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?'
As he continued, Nas implores his former spouse to 'set a better example' for their child and questions her motives for dragging his name through the press.
'Why did i have to take you to court to see our son?' he writes. '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 ? Why do you need to have control over my life? because we’re not together?'
