Ashanti Says It Was Betrayal That Led To Her Split From Nelly

Some wounds are just too deep put a fashion Band-Aid over.

R&B songstress Ashanti appeared on today’s edition of The Meredith Vieira Show and provided a little bit of information on what led to her split with longtime squeeze Nelly. The details were sparse, but the choice of words from the singer/actress said it all.

“You aren’t together anymore and you said it basically came down to trust,”; said Vieira during the daytime chat. “Why do you think it’s hard to trust somebody?”;

Ashanti tackled the question head on.

“I think sometimes when people have their own insecurities it allows them to act out of character. I’ve been betrayed,”; offered the 34-year-old star. “Again, you just have to grow. You have to grow up and accept responsibilities for the things that you do… 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. I’m in a different place right now.”;

Nelly and Ashanti were an item for roughly a decade and kept their relationship fairly private. In 2013, Ashanti appeared to dig into her split with Nelly in the lyrics of her single “Never Should Have.”;
