Report: Ashanti and Nelly Call It Quits

Ashanti and Nelly

Hip-hop power couple Ashanti and Nelly are reportedly going their separate ways.

The New York Daily News reports that the lovers split because Ashanti wanted to get married, while Nelly wasn’t ready to settle down. The “Country Grammar” rapper was rumored to be seen with model-actress Melyssa Ford in Las Vegas and Miami.

Ashanti and Nelly began dating nearly six years ago. “I met her at the MTV [Video Music] Awards one year,” Nelly told Rap-Up in 2008. “And we just exchanged numbers and we started talking and stuff like that, and we just started hanging out.”

When asked about marriage at the time, he said, “Right now, we not thinking about that. It’s just all about the work.”

No official confirmation has been made from either camp.

    [...] + Hip-hop power couple Ashanti and Nelly called it quits this week. Truly a sad day. Even more sad than Michael Jackson not being buried for the last two months, though that comes in at a close second. (Rap-Up) [...]

    Jay Z and Beyonce been together for 7 years before Jay Z asked her 2 marry him, what people don’t understand is its not how long you<e been with a person to determaine if your really in love, what matters is how you feel for one another and if either of them wasn't ready to get married then why rush into something that could destory what ya built for so long. Love is not a game or a one night stand, its not easy nor is it hard and Love don't come over night its something that could come with a lifetime.
