Judge Orders Kelis and Nas to Avoid Making Their Son Famous in Social Media

·

Chef, Cookbook author and singer Kelis and her ex-fiance rapper Nas  have reached a custody and visitation arrangement over their 8 year old son, Knight.

According to TMZ, a judge stepped in to preside over Nas’ complaint that the “Milkshake” singer made it difficult for him to see his child. Kelis has since welcomed a second son, Shepherd, with a partner she has never disclosed publicly.

TMZ reports:

According to court docs, the exes hammered out specific dates where Nas will have custody of Knight for weekends. Dad gets four full weekends over January, February and March. Nas’ weekend visits will begin immediately after school on Fridays … thru Sunday night, or Monday night, if it’s a 3-day weekend.

Another interesting part of the judge’s order: Try to limit exposing their son and ”popularizing” him in social media!

Ok.

We get it tho. There have been quite a few social media custody battles play themselves out in social media, most notably Ciara and Future over their son Future Zahir and Eva Marcille and Kevin McCall over their daughter, Marley Rae.

Ciara’s husband NFL quarterback Russell Wilson faced backlash last year for wishing his wife a Happy Mother’s Day on behalf of him and “our kids”.  Future fans saw it as a slap in the face to his step son’s dad.

McCall reportedly disowned Marley when Marcille posted an Instagram photo of Marley with her fiancé attorney Michael Sterling.

Nas rarely, if ever, posts photos of his son in social media and Kelis does so sparingly and never shows either of her children’s faces when she does. In fact, it looks like around the same time of the judge’s orders, she posted the above photo of herself with Knight on Instagram recently, with his cap over his face.

“Just exploring the world with my little ones by my side,” she captioned the colorful photo on a yacht or boat.

The timing to the proximity of the order is uncanny.

Speaking of which, Kelis has a mad dope Instagram feed! You should follow her if you are a fan of travel, color, music and culture!

Second Time Mom-to-Be Kelis hits NYC to promote her New Cook Book

When not touring or belting out hits on a stage, mom-to-be Kelis was studying at the famous Paris cooking school, Le Cordon Bleu. The native New Yorker recently hit up the HuffPost Live  and Sirius XM studios to promote her new cook book,  “My Life on a Plate: Recipes From Around the World“.

Dressed in baggy denim cuffed cropped pants, a silk t-shirt and black ballet flats, the Milkshake” singer hit the NYC promo tour last week.

In her cookbook, the native New Yorker shares dishes from her Puerto Rican heritage and her travels around the world. During stops on various legs of world tours, she discovered local outdoor markets and tiny hole-in-the-wall restaurants and other hidden journeys. She captures some of the food from her travels, culture and her own specialties derived from growing up watching and learning her mom who ran a catering business in the family home.

The cook book is the output of all that effort and was released this past September 28. And she had much practice working in a few restaurants on the line as a prerequisite to graduating from cooking school. “Kitchen is intense,”  she told BBC of working sauté, adding that at first her fellow classmates were taken with a celebrity apprentice by their side but over time, because “time is so crucial that no one, it was like whatever,  can you cook, like get on with it?”

Kelis, who is still actively performing,  told BBC that the cook book is “just another outlet” for her, “something she enjoys.”

It’s available in hardback for $17.79 at Amazon.com.

Kelis is currently expecting her second child with her husband (though that is yet to be confirmed). She has a 6-year old son Knight with ex-husband Nas,

Raspy-voiced singer Kelis is reportedly expecting  her second child.

The “Milkshake” singer debuted a sizable bump in a hot pink caftan-like top while performing this weekend at the Afropunk Festival in Brooklyn, New York on Sunday.

The singer  has a 6-year old son named Knight with rapper Nas. The couple split smack dab in the middle of filming a reality TV show for MTV while the curly-haired songstress was pregnant with Knight.

She recently concealed her bump in a black outfit while celebrating her 36th birthday and   is allegedly several months along and is ‘feeling great’, according to E! News. Her skin looks amazing. She is absolutely glowing. Wow, mama!

Congrats!

6 celebrity couples who split up before baby was born

Bellyitch Rewind
I saw this smokin’ hawt photo of Christina Milian today and thought boy is her ex singer/ mega producer The Dream missing out. The couple was one of several celebrity pairs to split in the middle of a pregnancy and BEFORE the baby was born.
Christina Milian was 8 months pregnant when she filed for divorce from The Dream  in 2010.
Personally, I know of a few friends who wound up splitting with their boyfriend or spouse before having their baby and each of them say it was very challenging being pregnant and not at least having someone to help them through those challenging months. A few have said, in hindsight, they would’ve waited it out until baby was born. Oy! Here are four other celebrities who split before their child was born:
In 2004, four months before delivering her 1st child, son Leni, whose dad is billionaire Flavio Briatore, Heidi Klum started dated Seal, who she later married and had 3 kids with before they too split in 2012.
Rapper Nas and singer Kelis were in the middle of filming their MTV reality TV show when they split while she was 7 months pregnant with their first child together in 2009. 
Alexis Knapp had to get Ryan Phillippe to submit to a paternity test to prove that the child she was carrying was his.  The two split before Knapp confirmed she was pregnant in 2010. 
Ex Spice Girl Melanie Brown too had to force comedian/actor Eddie Murphy to submit to a paternity test to prove he was the father to her then-soon-to-be born daughter Angel Iris born ironically on Murphy’s 47th birthday, April 3, 2007.  The couple had split in 2006 and back then there was no way of proving paternity until the baby was born. 
No one knows for sure who the dad is to Mad Men star January Jones’ first child, son Xander, but she announced she was pregnant in May 2011, five months after splitting with her boyfriend Saturday Night Live‘s  Jason Sudeikis. Rumors swirled that Ashton Kutcher may have been the dad. The two are good  friends.

Edited to Add: I found this post of 12 Celebrities that broke up before the baby was born that Crushable did a year ago which also includes Denise Richards and Charlie Sheen, Tom Brady and Bridget Moynahan, Mary Louise Parker and Billy Crudup and Tiki and Ginny Barber which I so would have added to this list had I remembered about them too!
