The Queens rapper responded to domestic abuse claims his ex-wife Kelis made toward him during an interview this past April.
The former couple has been entangled in a bitter custody battle over their 8-year-old son Knight for the better part of a year. Kelis has also accused him of being an alcoholic and claimed he physically and emotionally abused her.
Nas, for the first time, opened up about the shocking revelations after he heard that the singer-turned chef was once again going to speak to the press about their relationship. He emphatically denied that he ever physically abused his ex.
In seven lengthy Instagram posts, the Hip Hop legend laid it all out for his 4.4 million followers and finally gave his side of the story.

I’m a mild mannered god fearing very fair human being who tries his hardest to please everyone. It’s my nature.
I’ve seen this too many times before… And there was times i thought Kelis my ex wife was not this type. This is the type of antics that deceive people and people mistakenly call it strong.
