: MediaTakeOut.com just received a SHOCKING piece of information. According to one of our EXTREMELY RELIABLE insiders, rapper Nelly reportedly owes his on-again-off-again girlfriend Ashanti more than $500,000.
The insider, who spoke on the condition of anonymity - but who IS CLOSE TO ASHANTI, told MediaTakeOut.com, "It's not fair. Nelly has [over the course of their relationship] borrowed more than $500K from Ashanti. It was not gifts either, he promised to pay it all back."
The tipster continued, "But Ashanti hasn't seen one penny. He bought her a couple of dresses, and took her on some trips, but what about a check . . . He really needs to give her back her money."
According to the insider, Ashanti would NEVER specifically ask Nelly for the money back - but she definitely wants it from him.
Ashanti, boo . . . you need to stop PLAYING with that man. If he owes you money make him pay . . . or take his AZZ to Judge Judy or SOMETHIN!!!

Really Ashanti? You 're dumb enough to let be fooled by Nelly? I thought he was one of the most succesful rappers of the last decade. Really Ashanti? You give all your savings ? Homegirl now you're broke!
How many of you truly believe this? Just because MTO's lying coons say something, doesn't make it truth and fact. This is straight messy. I'm sure nothing of the sort happened.......MTO just trying to start sh!t as usual because they can't stand to see a black couple happy and in love! Swirl babies a black couple do not make!
She is hungry for a man..... He borrowed this 500K during the course of their relationship and not at one time. She is the idiot because she kept lending him without being paid back. She paid a lot for that d*ck.
lmao, 1st Nelly likes poker, not craps. And With all his ventures I doubt he'd have 2 borrow money from Ashanti.. She's the one not making change anymore, no hits, not writing for other people.. Nelly's got AppleBottoms (which yes people still wear specially in the south) Nelly's got Basketball revenue, Nelly's just had the #1 song in the country..... get over ur selfs MTO
That's that female libra shyt!!! Better her than ME tho! I just feel as tho a man should be to ashamed of himself to ask a female for any $$$. Go ask your mom! Just how I see it! When "holding your man down" goes #Wrong
He's broke lol, I mean really smh.. But this dude is nothing special, Ashanti most be desperate sitting around waiting for this lame lol... I mean this dude has a clothing line so umm shouldn't money be coming somewhere ???
I dont believe shyt from MTO .....what is this friend doing in her business......she cant tell him ---bunch of bull crap----I thought when Nelly and dude fell out..he said Nelly was spending all his money on gambling & Ashanti PER MTO
but that happens with rich or poor, black or white, young and old. Most men usually do this. the women want to help their men and the men take advantage of that. that is exactly y most females now a days burn their asses or become gold diggers. #realtalk
Wait? The real exclusive is that Ashanti actually had $500K to give somebody. That's really what you should be reporting MTO. Lol! Anyhoo...Nelly's body is ridiculous..owww!! Follow me on Twitter @Lovely_Kashmere. I'll follow back.
I CAN'T BELIEVE U DUMMIES REALLY BELIEVE THIS BS STORY!!!! ALL OF THAT MONEY NELLY MADE AND HE STILL GET MONEY...HE HAS HIS HANDS IN SOME MANY FRANCHISE TO BE BROKE NOW AND ASHANT NEVER NETWORK IS ONLY $100,000 AND SHE WAS THE ONE GETTING MONEY FROM NELLY SO FRED WITH YO 5 DOLLA MTO STAFF NEED TO SHUT IT DOWN LIKE RIGHT NOW!!!
Y'all must have forgot Ashanti has written songs for j.lo and Christina Milian.she also penned home and versed for songs Singer by her former label mates.she a best selling author,she has a successful perfume line a successful beautylone.she owns a record and a production. Company she produced and directed a couple of films and play and she also had a suvessful jeans line.she make 15,000k per appearance/performanceq
Was it 500,000 cents? Ashanti hasn't made that over the course of her entire career sampling. Who did she borrow it from cuz that's who is probably asking for it back (from her). Nobody wants that washed up cooch as collateral.
She ghastly wriiten songs for k.lo and christina Milian.she owns record label which she releases her alumbs under.she's a best selling author. She has penned hooks and verses for songs sunged by her former label mates.she has a successful fragrance.she has a beauty product out.she had a successful jeans line.she produced and directed a couple movies videos and plays.she makes 15,000k per appearance/performance
Dumb broad... Most dumb ass women think thats how you keep a n.igga wrong! She didnt let him borrow she GAVE that lute to him its a big difference."i support my man I give him money I cook and clean and work two jobs" nobody care bout that s.hit dumbass broads
cthu@all the dummies thinking Ashanti cldnt afford $500K. Her first of 4 albums broke records as at that time it became the first album by a female solo artist to have three songs in the top ten on the Billboard Hot 100 in the same week & she also did a few films. Based on how credible MTO 'exclusives' are though? Imma hold off on some more proof, like a public annoucement from Ashanti herself, nah mean? cu
I dunno bout this, but I can't get past the photo, myself. The chick behind them must know som Ashanti don't know & by the look on Nellys' face he doesn't look too interested. I like Ashanti & liked them together. Thought they were a cute couple.
Gambling ain't no damn joke and I don't care how much money you got, when you on a losing streak people can lose everything and the kitchen sink. Look at that fool body language, it's screaming, "I hope you don't think I'm paying yo azz back!!" LADIES...PAY ATTENTION!! YOU DON'T WANT THIS TO BE YOU!! She got the dumb giddy look and his is like whatever b*tch! Rappers be playing the ish out these chicks.
You outta ya mind, I'll put your mind outta you
i believe in helping each other out in a relationship, but not to the tune of $500K, over any period of time. Nelly knew what he was doin, borrowin it from his seemingly complacent "on-again-off-again" gf. He wouldnt borrow it from another rapper.. like Busta... cause Nelly would be headlining MTO cause he was found beat up someplace.
Doesn't that fool have plenty money of his own from selling records once upon a time? If this is even true..lol But then again, Nelly hasn't had a hit in a decade..he could actually be broke..These "celebs" stay fronting with their brokes azzes. especially the black ones..On the other hand, Ashanti seems like a "lady of the evening"..so I know she'll never be broke. She probably still doesn't have half a milli..lol
Ashanti was writing for people. So she has a few coins in. If true.... Sad that she is loaning him money and he has not wifed her. She has a good heart but people esp men take advantage sometimes too bad. Hope it works out.
Finally someone who recognizes that MTO is a GOSSIP site.....@tjtrae1 - Please REPEAT your comment....again and again and AGAIN.
I will say this though, Ashanti does seem like she's a real sweetheart and personally I hope she finds true love....just don't believe she's going to find it with Nelly.
She seems to be more into him than he is with her....she deserves so much better...in MY opinion.
Y'all are some idiots talking aboust Ashanti is broke. She most likely invested that money and made more. Any SMART person would know this. Broke ass haters. Anywayyys. She better kidnap that n*gga and cut off a toe for every day she don't get her sh*t back. Follow me.. @beedubbs
Wow....Many of u think that because your star fades = no $$$....U are crazy!!!....If a star makes the most of their $$$ while they are hot, they are set for life. There's a few musicians that are still living good 10 years later from 1 hit song and millions of ring tunes sold...U call them has-beens & granted in star power, I guess they are. But don't think that means necessarily their money is low. Plus, when u get into the entertainment world, u encounter many rich people. A rolodex of rich friends & associates can b a very powerful tool. There's an old producer who got $ from def-jam's hey day (90's). He owns 5 stores and partnered with other businesses in the commercial downtown Brooklyn area. He has been good since 97 and so will his children and possibly their children.
@MakeITHappen. I agree. Ashanti does deserve more. That's sad when you loan someone that type of money and they don't pay back. She's too pretty to be wasting time with Nelly. Please move on Ashanti before you regret it.
Please go back to the old mto format PLEASE MTO!!! This sh*t is beyond wack. The only reason I fckd w/ y'all, was cause y'all had the cleanest website display on my iPhone. CHANGE IT BACK !! & follow me y'all, @Beauty2Classic
you n*ggers are to dumb to understand that rich people don't need to front like they have by dressing the part, billionaires dress like bumbs and never in forbe mags........I love it when people say what no one has when in reality they have more than the people you think have. Love Ashanti!
It has been a lot of rumors going around about Nelly being in financial trouble. I hope they are false.
Check out the article on Obama being upset about lack of credit from black leaders on blackpeopleDOread dotcom
Lol @ MTO they say they want credit for they're dishing the dirt on stars. Just like old comedian Rodney Dangerfield used to say "Yall don't get no respect"!! Hey it don't even matter though,because even celebrities tune in daily to get the latest lies, OOPS! I mean scoop on whats happening in their lives,so looks like yall done made it in a sleazy sort of way. Anyhoo don't we all give money and exchange gifts in the name of love? See if Nelly had remained faithful, made Ashanti a baby momma or married her he wouldn't be on blast right now....Hope for her sake if she really wants her money back that she made him sign an agreement to pay her back other wise she can just write that off as a hard and VERY EXPENSIVE lesson learned...
I love Nelly..........I love Ashanti........as two individuals. But I hate the fact that he had her locked down in a relationship for so long without putting a ring on it....I've always disliked that fact about him. If this story is true, she's even more stupid than she's letting on. Ladies, stop 'paying' for the sex. If he wants to leave, let him. Five years max, no ring.......buh bye!!!!!!
i see a Judge Judy episode happening here. if they were married, i could understand the money situation, but there's no ring on her finger and she gave that type of money to his azz? uhhh, thought these rappers had all this cash on them. i guess gambling has gotten the best of him, if this story is true, and i really hope it's not. if it's true, she's an idiot. i have a problem getting up off a $5 let alone $500,000 (if i had that much)
@ghettobeats its 500 stacks I'm pretty sure she wrote a check or a money order.Ashanti was writing hits songs for other people before she become famous so she can live off of publishing checks alone.just customer someoney hasn't had a hit song in yours doesn't mean they broke.foxy brown hasn't released a hit song since 2005 but I heard she is have 3 million left out of her 18 million dollar fortune.plus Ashanti never really talks about her money.and we never really heard any stories on her waisting her money.plus the main ones who don't brag and show off is usually the one with the money

If this is true, then she is dumber than I thought. He isn't even going to wife her, but yet giving up a half million dollars is a DESPERATE move for a DESPERATE chick!
Ladies, word of advice: Don't lend men money PERIOD!!! As long as you're f**king him, they think they will never owe you.
Umm.. LOSER A ashanti! Don't give your man any money, if anything he should be paying you w/ interest for wasting your precious time. HAHAHA but thats just how we do in the bay, you hoes gots to start paying attention and learn from your stupid mistakes. If he aint spoiling you then he aint the one you should be fucking around with. end session of P.I 101 lmao **get informed dumb b!tches**
I love Nelly but Ashanti has really lowered her self worth in the course of this relationship. All those years of him denying their relationship, cheating on her etc. This is just something else. He should have way WAY more money than her too so dont know why he would need to borrow from her. She needs to let him go and find a nice business man or something.
IF this is true, then she was smart not to wait for a RING from him. He seems like he would have been better off not getting famous. They all need a class from JayZ and 50 on how to manage that money and not let it manage you.
Ashanti is one stupid broke azz chick that would believe anything Nelly has to say and offer. Her record sales are down her mother fugly self has her money, running around living like a spoil azz child something her own man should be providing for her.
Ashanti is just arm candy and sex for Nelly they are so played out. Nelly want Ashanti deliver no ring, no children. These pics are so old of them hugging and all smiles when in reality there is so much more drama behind the scene. Yall check out Behind The Music Nelly said it himself the phone stop ringing. In other words, nobody checking for Nelly he is broke and now living average. Next...
Nelly is the typical hood Negro they sex ya then play ya. Slow azz chicks like Ashanti fall right into this stupid old azz trap. Ashanti will be broke soon checking for food stamps and food pantry come on back to hood yall plenty of available seats. :-)
yal sound stupid lol do yal not know Ashanti has made millions??most celebrities invest bunch of broke haters hating on another black chick lol i think this chick is worth @least $30million do ya research
I AGREE STARCREAM...
IF TRUE IF ASHANTI WAS SMART SHE WOULD INVEST THAT KIND OF MONEY INTO HER CAREER NOT A MAN WHOS WAY RICHER THAN HER SMH THATS WHY SHES WHERE SHES AT NOW CAUSE OF BAD DECISIONS LIKE THIS...
Y'all must have forgot Ashanti has written songs for j.lo and Christina Milian.she also penned home and versed for songs Singer by her former label mates.she a best selling author,she has a successful perfume line a successful beautylone.she owns a record and a production. Company she produced and directed a couple of films and play and she also had a suvessful jeans line.she make 15,000k per appearance/performance
ok so he made some money back in the day and so did she. this is the second time money issues have came up about nelly in like the past two or so months, one from is so called manager and one from this article. maybe gambling is taking control of his life. yes he has a clothing line, but really, who still purchases apple bottom. his single just a dream did ok, but not the album. so there is a chance he is really BROKE. if this is true, she is hella dumb for still sticking around with him. he's obviously isn't taking the relationship very seriously if they are continuously breaking up and getting back together, he's still messing around, and he has yet to put a ring on it. ashanti honey please move on and stop stooping to his level. you can do better
