Nas and the mother of his son, Kelis have reached a joint custody agreement for their 8-year-old son after a bumpy road of legal tussle since their divorce in 2010.
According to TMZ, it appears that the couple has finally decided to share joint legal and physical custody of their son, with a few specifics fleshing out the details.
According to court documents obtained by TMZ at the end of last year, Nas claimed Kelis wasn’t cooperating amicably, and that he’d attempted to reach an agreement for months.
Now, both parents will share equal rights with caveats that include Nas getting Knight on Father’s Day and Kelis getting him on Mother’s Day. Additionally, Knight’s birthdays will decide which parent gets to celebrate with him—Nas on the even years and Kelis on the odd ones.
Considering the pair officially divorced in 2010 and Kelis welcomed another baby in 2015 with reported husband real estate agent Mike Mora , it’s about time that they’ve buried the hatchet. For those of you in Los Angeles, Kelis will be speaking at the Melody Ehsani Shop as part of the “The M.E. Speaker Series.”
On the career front, Nas has been busy being an angel investor through his Queensbridge Venture Partners company, while Kelis recently co-hosted BBC One’s Pitch Battle, where she judged singing contestants alongside Gareth Malone.
It would appear that the two are doing reasonably well, even though Kelis believes the monthly $8,000 she receives from Nas is far too low, in light of his recent business ventures.
Hopefully it’s less tussles between Nas and his baby mama going forward.
