Johannesburg - Nas has finally addressed the allegations of domestic abuse made by ex-wife Kelis following the demise of their marriage, according to People magazine.

Taking to Instagram, the Ether rapper slammed Kelis for an upcoming interview with Essence magazine, where she spoke about the alleged abuse she suffered during their five year marriage.

“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 wrote. “Exploiting some people’s Real struggle and pain . . . just to get at me . . . to get attention ? Fame? Another fight against men?”

The former couple share joint custody of 9-year-old son, Knight Jones, and the rapper hit out that allegations Kelis has made against him will affect their offspring.

“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 . . . the custody matter?”

Nas also questioned Kelis’ character, alleging that she was also abusive towards him.


In April, Kelis opened up for the first time about the mental and physical abuse she allegedly suffered while married to Nas, real name Nasir Jones.

“It was really dark. There was a lot of drinking. There was a lot of mental and physical abuse,” Kelis told Hollywood Unlocked.

“I probably would have stayed longer had I not been pregnant [with Knight] because I really did love him and because we were married. We weren’t dating, we were married. Like, this was my person.”
