Kelis is currently embroiled in a nasty custody battle with her ex-husband Nas, and she’s been accused of using their 9-year-old son Knight to try and hurt him.
It’s not only something the rapper said in court documents, but others have too, and they blasted the singer underneath a picture she posted.
The newly shared image came just days after it was revealed Kelis pleaded not guilty to violating the terms of her custody agreement with Nas.
In December of 2018, she took Knight to Cartagena, Colombia, a move to which the rapper said he never consented.
The photo, which the singer posted on Wednesday, shows her sporting new rainbow colored braids, which is reminiscent of the color theme she went with on her 1999 “Kaleidoscope” album. Kelis was picking fruit in the Instagram photo as well.
“Taste the rainbow,” she wrote in the caption.
But the only thing people had on their collective palettes was bitterness left by the accusation that she’s purposely keeping Knight away from his dad.
“Sis out here picking fruits instead of letting nas pick his son up okay,” someone wrote.
“Girl shutup and let the Man see his kid…. Giving Leos a bad name ,” a second person messaged.
“Don’t like her at all,” a third person simply stated.
In fact, there were a slew of comments that echoed those same words: That people used to admire Kelis, but since the details of her custody case surfaced, those days are long gone.
And one could say that’s the reason why Nas wasn’t canceled after she told The Hollywood Unlocked he got physical with her, which he eventually denied. In that same interview, Kelis admitted to striking him as well.
“Did he hit me?…..Mmm hmmm. Did I hit him back?…..Mmm hmmm,” she stated during that sit down.
Kelis and Nas are due back in court for their custody case on June 20.
