Classic Quotes by Carmen Bryan and Nas about their relationship:

"I do not want to see my child's father go to jail. However, I do want to see him get the mental help that I believe he desperately needs. So this situation is a curse and a blessing with regard to the fact that there are some deep rooted mental issues that I believe exist and need to be addressed." Carmen Bryan 3/2014
"Well first off, let me just say my experiences with Nas, my dealings with Nas, and my research all lead me to believe that he does suffer from bipolarism and he may be a paranoid schizophrenic. That's my personal opinion based on my experiences and interaction with him. An incident occurred with Nas years ago when we were together. I came in the house, Destiny and I, and he was on the couch wrapped up in a blanket; his mom was on one side of him, his brother on the other side, there were a few more people in the house. My first reaction was, 'Is everything okay? What happened?' And that's when Nas told me ghosts were haunting him again, and entities were whispering to him and touching him and bothering him. This is something that he mentioned when we first got together, but I had never experienced him ever experiencing it until that moment. So, I've witnessed this long battle with insanity." Carmen Bryan 3/2014
"This thing started, unbeknownst to me, in June of 2013. Nas just stopped paying Destiny's tuition. I have a court order that says he has to pay 100% of her secondary education, which is college. Nas dropped out of school I believe 7th, 8th grade, so he's ignorant and uneducated. He's a junior high school dropout; he doesn't believe in education. My thing is she wants an education. After all she's been through, she desires it, and she deserves it. What she doesn't deserve is to get half way through an accelerated program, and have to stop because her father refuses to pay the tuition. But this time, I want things to be different. I don't want him to go to jail, I want him to get help." Carmen Bryan 3/2014
"My legal team is going to file a motion and ask the judge for an order to have him mentally evaluated before we proceed because like I said, I don't want to see him go to jail, but I do want to see him get the help that possibly, based on my experiences with him, he needs. And anyone that knows Nas, knows him, they know that he's off. I believe that he is terrified, and he's afraid of public backlash and humiliation. I also believe that he's afraid the medication will numb him, or turn him into some kind of zombie so he won't be able to write and create, which will ultimately ruin his career. These are my personal beliefs based on my past experiences and conversations with Nas. Like I said, I just want to see him get the help I believe he desperately needs, at the end of the day he is Destiny's father. I'm concerned." Carmen Bryan 3/2014
