Look at what we have here. It’s Missouri rapper, Nelly with his new girlfriend, LaShontae Heckard, (also known as Tae Heckard.) You might recognize her from a few episodes from BET’s “The Game,” as Jazz, Jasmine or Shelia. Earlier this morning Tae posted this adorable picture of she and Nelly canoodling in a photo booth. And she captioned it like this:
Him mad cuz I’m a beast in bowling. #cookienomilk #imlying #ialmostsliddownthelanewiththeball #hehadtosaveme #ibeatblueanddeemarietho
I’m not gon’ lie, they’re cute. But I would be lying if I said I only felt happiness looking at this picture.
Honestly, the first thing that came to mind was, “It’s a shame this new girl gets to publicly express her love when Ashanti had to repeatedly deny the true nature of her relationship with Nelly… for nearly a decade.”
I don’t consider myself an Ashanti fan, but I can’t help feeling sorry for the girl, she was always in the shadows. And then when the two started alluding to the fact that they really were together the whole time, Nelly was talking about how he couldn’t be forced into a marriage. Sigh…
Who knows, it may have been Ashanti’s idea to keep their relationship on the low but all of this looks suspect or at least shady doesn’t it?
Anyway, best of luck to Nelly and Tae.
