Child Custody: Nas Takes Kelis To Court After Refusing To Co Parent & Let Him See His Son
Nas is taking his ex-wife Kelis to court over custody for their 8-year-old son, Knight.
According to The Blast, the Queens rapper says that he has “tried to work cooperatively with Kelis over the years” when it comes to visitation with their son. However, she only allows him to spend time with the boy “when she deems it convenient for her.”
Nas says that Kelis will go months on end “refusing” establish time for the father and son to spend time together, then will seemingly randomly choose an occasion for them to see each other.
As such, Nas has petitioned the court to grant him a formal custody schedule that Kelis must adhere to, which he has lined out as follows in a proposal:
Nas wants the Knight on the 1st, 3rd, and 5th weekend of every month. Their son will spend Mother’s Day with Kelis and Father’s Day with Nas, and each parent will celebrate his or her own birthday with the child.
When it comes to Holidays, Nas has also laid out an even/odd year plan to limit confusion and conflict:
Kelis gets Halloween in even years, Nas gets odd.
Kelis gets July 4 in even years, Nas gets odd.
Kelis gets Summer Break in odd years, Nas gets even.
Kelis gets Thanksgiving in odd years, Nas gets even.
Kelis gets the child’s birthday in odd years, while Nas gets even.
Nothing was specified for Chirstmas, but Nas also makes unspecified stipulations on the child’s December/January school break.
Well, this sounds perfectly reasonable to us. The judge has yet to rule on things, but if Kelis truly is hoarding time with their child, we can’t see how this proposal would be turned down by the court system.
