Full story below…
A clip of the performer’s mom in a concerning predicament in Atlanta went viral and saw some slam the star for seemingly “living the life” while his mom…does not.
However, rising to his defense was his dad, R.L. Stafford, who shared a pic of the family together with this lengthy message:
“Despite what people say @lilnasx is the greatest kid a parent can be BLESSED with. Although his mom is in a struggle with an addiction she’s STILL a QUEEN and he goes through great lengths to make sure we’re taking care of. Those who have family members and friends dealing with addiction understands that there ain’t enough money you can throw at this situation to make it right. I dont usually address personal issues publicly but felt like this need to be. Please join us in keeping her in your PRAYERS. And to those out there trying to create a false story you wont prosper. #controlthenarrative”
In an interview with Variety, Nas said of his mother:
“I never really talk about my mom. She’s an addict so we don’t have the closest relationship. Even trying to get her better — things didn’t quite work out. But there’s still love… The biggest surprise of becoming globally famous? On the outside, everybody loves you — but on the inside, everything [feels] the same.”
We wish their family the best.
