A mere two months after Hip-Hop’s favorite secret (that actually isn’t that much of a secret) couple Nelly and Ashanti were seen hugged up and having at amazing time at the 2012 Angel Ball, the two are reported to have called it quits. A source exclusively revealed to Bossip.com that Nelly is actually the one who put an end to the relationship because of Ashanti’s inability to be faithful and her dishonesty about past infidelity.
It seems that Ashanti’s good girl image went down the crapper once word began circulating that she’s pretty “popular” among men in the industry. The source went on to say that for years Nelly ignored the rumors that the songstress had slept with celebrities such as Jay Z, Nas, and her producer Irv Gotti, who is actually a married man and openly admitted in a radio interview with Wendy Williams that he had an affair with the Glen Cove native back in 2007.
It was also rumored that she had some involvement with producer Chink Santana who played her love interest in the video for her 2004 single “Don’t Let Them“. The producer also played a leading role in Keyshia Cole’s “Should’ve Cheated” video, which triggered the circulation of rumors that Ashanti and Keyshia disliked one another because they were both romantically involved with the married producer; however those speculations were never actually proven. But, it seems that this very rumor is what caused Nelly to say enough is enough.
It is believed that Keyshia’s new duet with Ashanti “Woman To Woman” is based on more fact than fiction and is actually what pushed Nelly over the edge and that the two ladies have squashed their beef because Keyshia is now happily married. The source revealed that this is what caused him to begin questioning the nature of the relationship between Chink and Ashanti again and made it hard for him to believe her claims that the relationship was platonic. Again, allegedly.
We can only hope that these rumors aren’t true and that whatever the situation is, the two can find it in themselves to make amends and move on so we can get back to talking about how they’re a secret couple again.
Check out the video of Ashanti and Keyshia performing “Woman To Woman.” Does this strike you as a true to life scenario or do you think this is just a rumor?
