Nas Not Allowed to Witness Son’s Birth?
Rapper Nas and his soon-to-be ex-wife Kelis are both celebrating the birth of their son, but according to reports the doting dad was not allowed in the delivery room. Kelis, was rushed to a hospital Tuesday, ironically forcing her to postpone a scheduled child support hearing.
“Nas is in New York City today, anxiously awaiting the arrival of his son. It was his intention to be there for the birth, but unfortunately he has not been allowed to be present,” said a source close to the rapper. “While this is clearly heartbreaking to him, Nas continues to offer his support and love to his new baby boy and his mother.” According to reports, Nas rushed to the hospital when he received word Kelis went into labor, but missed the actual birth.
The couple tied the knot in 2005 following a two-year engagement. Following their recent split, negotiations between the two have gotten pretty ugly. Kelis stated that without Nas’ financial support she would not be able to survive, as her pregnant condition hindered her ability to work. She stated that her ex made upwards of $11 million last year, a claim that he later refuted.
The birth of their son marks the first child for Kelis, and the second for Nas, who has a 15-year-old daughter, Destiny, from a previous relationship.
