Nas Denies Ex-Wife’s Domestic Abuse Claims, Says “I Hate You So Much Right Now”
Nasir Olu Dare Jones popularly known as NAS has responded to the allegations made by his ex-wife Kelis against him, saying: “I do not beat women.”
Singer Kelis had earlier this year claimed that Nas had been physically abusive during their four-year marriage.
“Did he hit me? Mmhmm. Did I hit him back? Mmhmm. I’m not afraid to throw a punch, but I wouldn’t have started it,” she had said.
She claimed that while Rihanna was struggling with injuries from Chris Brown that she was also suffering same with NAS.
The pair divorced in 2009, with Kelis saying in April that she considered going public about the alleged abuse at the time – after seeing pictures of Rihanna’s face following an attack by Chris Brown.
“I remember so clearly, when the pictures came out with that whole thing that happened with her and Chris Brown, and the only way I can describe it was like Double Dutch.
“‘Do I jump in? Do I say it?’ Because I had bruises all over my body at that time,” she told Hollywood Unlocked.
“Seeing her, the way she looked, and then looking at myself, I was embarrassed,” Kelis said. “He knew it. He looked at me like, ‘Are you gonna do it?’.”
However, in a series of lengthy emotional posts, Nas revealed his struggles trying to see his son, how he ignored the signs that she is jealous and how he now hates her.
Nas, who’s one of the best-selling hip hop artists in history, also remembered the “good times”.
“I HATE YOU SO MUCH RIGHT NOW. But I thought you was beautiful.
“You came into my life at a time I was grieving from my mom’s passing. You was a friend. Because of that I wanted to marry you,” he wrote, before apologising for not being “the most faithful husband”.
