Another one bites the dust! Word on the street is Ashanti has officially been kicked to the curb for being a lying cheating no good slore!
A trusted source has confirmed the breakup to BOSSIP exclusively.
For years Nelly has been hearing rumors that Ashanti was sleeping around, but he didn’t want to believe the rumors. It’s never been a secret that Shanti ain’t exactly sweet and innocent and amongst industry folk it is common lore that Irv Gotti hit that. 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.
Don’t know who Chink is?
Well you need only look at Ashanti and Keyshia Cole videos like “Don’t Let Them” and “I Should’ve Cheated,” both videos which used Chink as the leading male love interest which sparked talk back as far as 2005 that the two women hated each other because they both were involved with Chink — at the same damn time!!! Ironically, Chink was also married at the time, a fact Ashanti later used to deflect Nelly’s suspicions after he heard talk about their involvement. In addition to serving as eye candy to both ladies he also did double duty behind the boards, producing on several songs with each. He also had easy access to Ashanti as Irv had brought him on as part of The Inc team.
We all know that Nelly isn’t exactly innocent either, but after years of being off and on he’d finally made the decision to be a changed man and move forward with the relationship. Cornell came clean about all his wrongdoings — but Ashanti maintained that she’d been faithful during the relationship.
So what sank her ship finally? Hit the flip to find out
From what we hear — Ashanti’s new duet with Keyshia Cole “Woman To Woman” rang a little too true to his ears. 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).
Long story short — Nelly was no longer able to buy Ashanti’s story about Chink. And if the stories about Chink were true, how many others were as well?
That’s why after those lavish birthday parties he threw for her — Nelly closed the door on Ashanti for the last time.
Damn Shanti… hope it was worth it.
