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

- By

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….
