Sorry Ashanti: Sources Confirm Nelly Dating Shantel Jackson, Floyd Mayweather’s Ex

If your suspicions were raised when you saw Nelly make Floyd Mayweather’s ex, Shantel Jackson, his #WCW two weeks ago, your thoughts were justified. After the pair was spotted at the Miami Heat vs. Charlotte Bobcats game Sunday night everyone started to question whether they might be more than Instagram flirts and Bossip was able to confirm that Derrty Mo and Miss Jackson are indeed an item.

Sources told the site that the two have actually been dating for several months but have been keeping their relationship on the low. That’s likely all about to change though, thanks to intel which claims Nelly is getting ready to drop a track called “Thanks To My Ex” that we imagine will have Floyd, Ashanti, and Tae Heckard all in their feelings. Emotions aside, it seems to us Nelly is doing the absolute most these days. We’ve come to accept Ashanti is lowkey just as responsible for their decade of secrecy as he is, but every other week Nelly Nel seems to be switching between shouting out his old girl, Ashanti, to his ex-girl Tae, to his new girl Shantel, on social media. He might be thinking it’s time to put it in a song so we know it’s real, but judging by his history — and Shantel’s — he might wanna wait a bit before dropping any love songs that he’ll later have to retract.

Also, interesting he’s willing to be so public with this woman, but he and Ashanti were the worst kept secret in music in the 200s….

    Yawn. He’s only doing this because Tae keeps sporting her new man. Don’t feel sorry for Ashanti, he’s doing her a favor.

    • AyoKP

      Right…funny how as soon as Tae starting sporting an engagement ring he’s been doing the most

  • soisaid

  • Please

    I swear I feel like Ashanti’s mama from the “Happy” video sometimes. Like, I need him to be with Ashanti and marry her and have adorable babies. Please, and thank you.

    I love me some Nelly but he’s looking quite thirsty these days…

  • BabyBlue

    Y’all getting info from bossip? Bahaha…..

    • divinnalafeme

      Bossip owns them so its pretty much the same thing and Nelly and missjackson have already said they aren’t dating so why is bossip saying they have been an item for months and he writing songs about her??? But the sad part is people will believe it just to have something to talk about.

      • BabyBlue

        No wonder….I mean why should we care? Nelly who?

  • dottie

    Or this song is purely coincidental and you all have chosen to attribute this to a new relationship. And intel did not tell y’all that he and missjackson have been an item he probably told y’all about a song and you drew your own conclusions besides missjackson maintains they are friends and Nelly hasn’t said anything. And he is less private bc that was ashani’s thing but you all chose to blame it on him like everything else. I swear yall act like he be holding a gun to that girl head.
