Rapper Nas has dropped the looming contempt charges against his ex-wife Kelis amid their ongoing custody battle.

Back in January, Nas accused Kelis of violating the custody agreement they have for nine-year-old son Knight, but just days before a hearing on the matter was scheduled to take place, he filed a request for dismissal, according to The Blast.

"In or around December of 2018, Petitioner (Kelis) moved to Cartagena, Colombia and took the minor child without my consent," Nas' filing read back in January.

"On Christmas, Petitioner informed me by text message that although her 'plan' had been to bring the minor child back to me in Los Angeles for New Year's, the plan had changed. She then stated that the new plan was to come back on January 4, 2019."

Kelis had pleaded not guilty to the charges. It's unknown as to why Nas dropped the charges. Perhaps he just did not want to see the mother of his child behind bars.
