Ashanti Goes In On Nelly During Concert For Betraying Her Amid His Sexual Assault Scandal
There is obviously still bad blood between Ashanti and Nelly, although they split way back in 2012. The singer slammed the rapper during her concert for publicly betraying her. 

Ashanti was recently asked about her ex-boyfriend, who has been accused of sexually assaulting two women, and didn't have much to say. 

TMZ cameramen caught up to the singer at LAX, hoping to get a comment on the rape allegations. Ashanti refused to comment, only stating, "do less." However, she had plenty to say about Nelly during her recent performance. 

Ashanti addressed the audience before her performance to tell the crowd she wanted them to understand where she is coming from. She proceeded to bring up the subject of being betrayed.

"See I just wanna make sure y’all understand exactly what I’m saying," she stated. "Cause I’ve been betrayed before, publicly at that."

One male fan in the crowd yelled out, "[expletive] Nelly!", to which Ashanti replied, "Word." 

It's clear that Ashanti still holds a grudge against Nelly and the way he treated her during their relationship.

An Ashanti fan commented on the singer's statements during her show, defending her actions.

The fan wrote, "I see a lot of females on here telling her to get over it. She didn't even bring his name up, a fan did. She said word and kept moving. Not only that she was with that man for 10 years and if she sings songs about him so what. Keisha Cole and Mary J. Blige sing songs about heartache as well as good times too. Don't understand why some women want to bring other women down. We don't know what she went through with him. I'm glad to see she didn't let herself go, and she's still making boss moves. Still beautiful and doing what she loves to do. I am a fan of Nelly too but if he's out here unprotected Ashanti dodged a bullet. Can't be mad or hate on that."

#Timeless #sayless

Ashanti and Nelly were together for 10 years before ending their relationship in December 2012.

The pair remained pretty quiet on their split, but Ashanti hinted at the reason for their break-up during an interview back in 2015.

When people show you who they are... believe them.. #sayless

The "Foolish" singer appeared on "The Meredith Viera Show" and opened up about the end of her relationship with Nelly. She explained trust issues were the main problem.
The eyes Chico... they never lie.. #sayless #hypebae

Ashanti said, "I think sometimes when people have their own insecurities, it allows them to act out of character."

The host asked her why she found it hard to trust people. 

"I've been betrayed," Ashanti replied. "You have to grow up and accept responsibilities for the things that you do."

She continued, "I'm not a big fan of people being cowards. I think it's really important to know yourself and understand what you want and get it."

Ashanti and Nelly met during a pre-Grammys press conference back in 2003 where both were nominees.


The pair kept their relationship very private, but they did collaborate on 2009's "Body on Me."

Nelly is now in a relationship with Shantel Jackson, who is standing by her man even after the sex assault allegations.
