Well, what a difference a few months make. Wasn’t it just last October when we spotted Nelly and Ashanti celebrating her birthday? Well, that may all be over. After dating for about 8 years the couple have called it quits! Although this isn’t the first time the couple have been rumored to have broken up, this time, Nelly has been spending quite some time with actress Tae Heckard. Here’s a photo Tae posted via Instagram of herself and Nelly smoking some trees. She writes, “N*ggas sswweeaarrr it’s medicinal. Pull out yo prescription then…-_-”
The “Country Grammar” rapper, who burst on the scene in 2000, has not only sold 21 millions albums across the United States, but has ventured off into acting and has become a lucrative businessman.
He’s even a philanthropist. He founded the “4Sho4Kids Foundation” following the diagnosis and death of his sister Jackie Donahue from leukemia. The foundation attempts to educate African-Americans and other minorities about the need for bone marrow transplants, and urges the registration of more donors.
Just how will he celebrate his birthday, Vegas of course!
He’ll host his birthday/fight party at TAO Las Vegas, Saturday, Nov 12th. I wonder if his on-off and believed to be back on girlfriend Ashanti will be in toe to celebrate? Hmm…I’ll keep you posted.
The lovely Keyshia Cole and NBA player and finance’ Daniel Gibson rang in the new year in a very low kinda way while on a trip in Chicago. The couple also celebrated the one year anniversary of when they became engaged.

Beyonce even took to the stage to perform “Forever Young” with the man of the hour Jay Z and her own hit “Halo”.
