The couple has been romantically involved since 2003, but they were rumoured to have gone their separate ways earlier this month (Jul08) after the New York Daily News quoted Ashanti as saying, “I’m dating my new album, and no one else.” However, according to website Usmagazine.com, their relationship is still going strong.
A source says, “(They) are definitely very much still together.” R B star Ashanti recently collaborated with her beau for a song on her album The Declaration, which was released last month (Jun08).
She made her music video debut in Brandy’s 2002 video for “Full Moon.” Are you surprised that Nelly has started dating so soon after ending a long-term relationship?
Rapper NELLY is still dating singer ASHANTI despite recent rumours of a split.
I've been betrayed," the 34-year-old said, although she failed to elaborate with specifics.
A trusted source has confirmed the breakup to BOSSIP exclusively.But for the longest time Cornell chose to disregard rumors that Shanti had been passed around amongst rappers like Jay-Z and Nas as well as among lesser known producers, like Chink Santana.From what we hear — Ashanti’s new duet with Keyshia Cole “Woman To Woman” rang a little too true to his ears.Just a couple of weeks after breaking up with his longtime girlfriend, Ashanti, Nelly has moved on with Tae Heckard.The 38-year-old rapper and the 32-year-old singer had been dating for almost a decade, but never really confirmed the relationship despite constantly being photographed together.Here are the highlights: On Nelly: "There was a space where it was bad. Yea." She said that they BOTH did each other wrong (this seemed to refer to "cheating" and stepping outside of the relationship).She added that their biggest issue was that men and women handle "hurt" differently.Her military father was stationed there when he met her mother, and the family later moved to Texas.Heckard herself was in the military for nine years — four of which were active duty.After years of knowing that Ashanti was at odds with Keyshia (who never made it a secret that she disliked Ashanti and may as well have confessed to a relationship with Chink during a 2005 appearance on “106 & Park”) why were the women finally able to bury the hatchet?Only because both had moved on from Chink (who ironically had production credits on Cole’s 2010 album).
