Nas & Kelis Finally Settle Messy Child Custody Battle Over 8-Year-Old Son And Reach New Agreement
Looks like Jesus Finally Fixed It!

TMZ says that Nas and ex-wife Kelis have finally put a stop to their child custody dispute, as they have supposedly reached a new agreement, the parameters of which surround how much time each gets to spend with their 8-year-old son, Knight.

Court documents detailed a few very specific dates that Nas will have a bit of quality time with Knight; four full weekends over January, February and March. His weekend visits begin right after the child is done with school on Fridays and last all the way through Sunday night (or Monday night, if it is a long weekend).

The new plan also makes very clear that neither one of them is to popularize Knight using any of their social media accounts. This whole issue came up during the protracted discussions that have gone on between Nas and Kelis about custody for A MINUTE.

Last month, he accused her of refusing him proper visitation with his son.

Nas had filed legal documents, stating that he has attempted "to work cooperatively with Kelis over the years," but Kelis only allows him visitation with Knight "when she deems it convenient for her."

He claimed there are times he will go without seeing his son for months. Nas added that Kelis refuses "to set up time for our son and me to spend time together." He had submitted a proposal to the judge for visitation, requesting that he has custody of Knight on the 1st, 3rd, and 5th weekend of every month. 

He also asked that his son be able to spend Mother’s Day with Kelis and Father’s Day with him.

Kelis and Nas tied the knot in 2005, after dating for two years. She filed for divorce in 2009 when she was 7 months pregnant with their son, claiming that Nas has cheated on her.

Fun (for us, probably not for Nas) fact! Their divorce is considered one of the most expensive split in hip-hop history, as Nas was ordered to pay over $350,000 in the divorce settlement, in addition to the $51,000 the rapper was ordered to pay Kelis each month for child and spousal support.

What else is going on his Nas’ life? Well, he is no longer involved with Nicki Minaj after 7 months of dating reportedly.

Too bad, so sad.
