Ashanti has been ''betrayed'' in her romantic life.
Although Ashanti she didn't refer to Nelly by name she admitted she had lost trust in a previous relationship.

Neither Ashanti or Nelly have ever publicly spoken about the reason why their relationship ended.

Ashanti has been bothered by the same man since 2003, and admits his behaviour has been ''not fun'' and she has had to go to court on several occasions to try and put an end to his actions.
