Hip-Hop star Nas is currently celebrating the birth of his son, although sources close to the rapper told AllHipHop.com that he was not allowed to witness the event.
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.
Nas and Kelis were married in January of 2005 after being engaged for two years.
Kelis filed for divorce in April of 2009, citing irreconcilable differences.
No further details were available as to why Nas may have been prevented from witnessing the birth of his son.
Nas, born Nasir Jones, also has a 12-year-old daughter with ex-fiancée Carmen Bryan.
