Kelis delivered a baby boy today and word is Nas was not allowed to witness the birth of their son. AllHipHop.com is reporting:
Nas’ lawyer Mark Vincent Kaplan stated that Nas rushed to the hospital to witness Kelis deliver his first son today (July 21).
A source close to Nas told AllHipHop.com that the Queen’s rapper missed the actual child birth.
“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,” a source close to the rapper told AllHipHop.com. “While this is clearly heartbreaking to him, Nas continues to offer his support and love to his new baby boy and his mother.”
Nas and Kelis were due in court today in regards to their pending divorce, specifically child and spousal support.
The date had to be postponed when Kelis, born Kelis Rogers , went into labor, around 10:30 this morning.
It is not surprising he wasn’t allowed to witness the birth, is it? They are embroiled in a contentious divorce. It would have probably added to her stress level to have him in the room. She can’t stop him from being in the hospital so that will have to be enough.
During delivery it is about the welfare of the baby and the mother so anything that will agitate her will obviously be limited. However, he should be allowed to see his child in the future so hopefully that doesn’t become an issue.
UPDATE: Nas was spotted at Queensbridge celebrating. He says his son’s name is Knight.
