An insider claims the two split because Ashanti was ready to settle down, while her beau wanted to sow his wild oats. Sure enough, the "Hot in Herre" rapper has been squiring video vixen Jessica Rabbit around Las Vegas and Miami. A rep for both declined to comment.
The hip-hop super-couple managed to keep their four-year romance secret until Nelly confirmed only last November that they were a couple. Ashanti confessed earlier this year that a wedding was "absolutely in the cards".
Too bad. They seemed like such a happy couple but this is probably better for Ashanti.
