We are sad to report that Nelly and Ashanti split.
On that report, a source does confirm the hip hop couple has called it quits with Nelly has reportedly already begun dating other female.
The same source furthermore, said that Ashanti, on the other hand, "is really broken up over losing [Nelly] ... But her friends and family are helping her get through it."
"To get her mind off [the break up], Ashanti's been spending all her time working on music ... now she may even be able to release an album before year's end," the source goes on saying.
If only the report is to be believed, we have nothing but best wishes for both stars.
