Rapper Nelly and his girlfriend, Shantel Jackson, who have been together since 2014, have broken up.
In a post on Instagram, a user asked, “R U and Nelly still together?” Shantel responded with, “No we are not..Just frends.”
It was only last year that Nelly proclaimed that he couldn’t imagine his life without Shantel. He even stated that they were headed towards matrimony.
“I wouldn’t want my life to not have Shantel in it. We’ve been seeing each other for five or six years. Anytime you can connect with somebody like that, it works out for the long run. She’s sweet,…beautiful. The more we got to know each other, she’s just as beautiful inside,” Nelly said at the time.
Shantel is the former fiancée of Floyd Mayweather.
She stood by Nelly’s side for seven years even when he was accused of rape in 2018. Then, she was subpoenaed to give her testimony.
