We told you yesterday about the reports that Angie Stone and boyfriend/manager Ashanti had broken up after more than eight years together. If you watched this season of “R&B Divas: Atlanta,” you know that Stone was hoping that she would walk down the aisle with him at some point (she DID catch the bouquet at Monifah’s wedding…), but as of right now, that’s not going to happen. As the story goes, they broke up because he was cheating on her with a member of the “R&B Divas: Atlanta” production crew. There was supposedly evidence of his infidelity that Stone found, including text messages and phone records. Crazy, right?
Well, a source from the show told us that yes, the two have gone their separate ways, and most of the cast and crew found out at one time or another that Ashanti was being unfaithful. They also say that part of Stone’s behavior during the reunion (the storming out part) had to do with that betrayal. But the source says that as far as the part of the story about the MARRIED staff member cheating with Ashanti, they’re not so sure. They’re waiting to see the evidence Stone claims she has.
Claims Of Ashanti Cheating With Show Staff Member:
“I haven’t seen any real proof. The person she’s accusing has been married for 20 years and just renewed her vows in March. From what I here, he [Ashanti] has a few ‘friends.’ That’s the reality. Whether or not one of those friends was one of the people in our production crew, I don’t know. We’ve all heard and got wind of it. Everybody in the cast and crew knows. I just found out someone who’s a friend of the family that I’ve known since I was child was messing with him for the last six years. But as far as her saying it was someone on our production team, and claiming that she has phone records and text messages to support it, well if you do, provide it to us. Obviously, that’s a breach of our agreements. You can’t be sleeping with somebody that’s on the show. But she’s yet to provide that documentation to the production company or legal. She’s been saying it for some time. But we don’t have the proof on our end to support her claim.”
Stone’s Reunion Outburst:
“The behavior during the reunion was bizarre when Wendy asked about the status of her relationship. She walked off the show and got upset, was flustered and ‘resigned.’ I was like, ‘Is this because you know how crazy you look and this is your way of kind of spinning it around?’ I know they’re not together and I do know that she has a different manager. I’m hearing Debra Antney who is Wacka Flocka’s mom is now her manager. I know that much. I just don’t know why she’s fixated with this one staff member and has been since the very beginning. She’s tried to physically put hands on her. There was one scene that I wish they would have shown. The person in question was trying to convince her to come back out and Ashanti looked at the woman, and [Stone] didn’t like the way that he looked at her even though she was talking to the both of them. She just went back in her dressing room. I don’t know if it’s just a personal thing, but I really don’t think the person on our team would do that.”
Considering how down Stone seemed for Ashanti (whom she met while he was working at an airport and then made into her manager), all this is pretty sad. But what do you believe?
