Nelly is ready to propose to his girlfriend of five years, Ashanti. But there’s just one problem: He can’t stand her mother, Tina Douglas! “Tina sticks her nose in everything because she’s also Ashanti’s manager,” a source tells Star. “She’s always pushing Ashanti to make more money, to always look great. It stresses her out, and Nelly doesn’t like that.”
The rapper, 34, has tried to encourage Ashanti, 28, to become more independent, but “Tina has such a strong personality that she’s kind of afraid of her.” Still, if the singer doesn’t put her mom in her place soon, she won’t be getting that rock she’s been hoping for. “Before he makes her his wife,” adds the source, “Nelly wants to know that Ashanti can make decisions on her own.”
Gotta love them stage moms using their kids like Class A gravy trains & sh*t. Lol at Ashanti being scared of her mom too. How sad. But seriously, we don’t blame Nelly for holding out until Ms. Thicky-kins learns to keep Tina in check – in-law drama is a b*tch. By the by, now we see where ole girl gets them massive hams from.
