Rapper Nas Could Face Jail Time Over Back Child Support (VIDEO)
Nas is in some hot water with his baby mama, who accuses him of owing $11,000 in back child support! for their 19-year-old daughter, Destiny Jones. According to TMZ, the Illmatic rapper could face jail time if he doesn’t pay up.
Carmen Bryan’s suit claims that Nas, aka Nassir Jones, is a “repeat criminal non-supporter” of their daughter. For that reason, she’s seeking to have Nas held in contempt of court — which means possible jail time. The court docs also indicate that Nas has refused to pay Destiny’s college tuition and medical bills.
Ironically, Nas has rapped about not feeling he’s been the best parent to Destiny on his hit song, “Daughters”. On one verse, he says: “And I ain’t tryna mess your thing up, but I just wanna see you dream up.” If Carmen’s claims about Destiny’s tuition are true, it certainly doesn’t seem like Nas is putting his money where his mouth is.
Carmen isn’t the only one of Nas’s baby mamas who’s collecting child support. He and Kelis had a contentious divorce in 2009, resulting in an initial child support order of $40k for their son Knight. Eventually, a judge reduced it to $20k. Still... yikes.
