Nelly and Lashontae Heckard are no longer together, and Ashanti may be to blame. The 39-year-old rapper confirmed on Instagram Tuesday that he is single.

He posted a photo of himself along with the caption, “Hold up…!! I’m 100% single…! So what..!! 

Ashanti and Nelly reportedly broke up last year after a relationship that lasted for about 10 years, but sparked rumors of reconciliation in February. The two were spotted getting cozy over Super Bowl weekend.

Back in June, Ashanti opened up about their relationship and whether or not they broke up because Nelly cheated on her. She told talk-show host Arsenio Hall: “I mean, listen…things happen, people get hurt, people have resentment, people carry old things with them. Things just happen in real life. You go through things, I go through things, It’s a little bit of both. Some of it is generic and some things are about me. Do I go through things? Absolutely. He has to do what he has to do right now, and I have to do what I have to do right now, because sometimes you can distract each other.”

But they must have missed distracting each other lately, as Page Six reported in February that the two hung out together at New York nightclub WIP along with P. Diddy, Rick Ross and other rappers. “Diddy and Rick needed extra room at the table for their furs. Ashanti and Nelly cuddled up next to them…” a source says, adding that they looked “happy to be back together.”

That could not have been good news for Heckard. He met her nearly 10 years ago on the video set of his song “Grillz.” She even has his nickname, “Mo,” tattooed on her lower back. "M.O." is also the title of Nelly’s seventh studio album. It is believed the pair had been together since at least last January. She posted a video of Nelly on her Instagram account in November but kept quiet about him since then. She is now believed to be dating Brandon Jennings. He currently plays for the Detroit Pistons. She posted a picture of the two looking happy together on her Instagram on Monday.
