Nelly Goes All The Way Off On Social Media After Ex Ashanti Gets Petty And Shares A Video With His Dad — Receipts Inside

Father's Day may be over, but there is one celeb still talking about the man he refuses to call "father."

Nelly is apparently feeling disrespected by his father, Cornell Haynes Sr., after viewing an Instagram video posted by his ex-girlfriend, Ashanti. Nelly put his father on blast and said he'd no longer be footing his bills!

The "Hot in Herre" rapper obviously feels some kind of way about his former girlfriend and views his father's friendly behavior with Ashanti as a betrayal.  

Ashanti shared a video to her Instagram story over the weekend, showing herself backstage at her show in St. Louis with Nelly's father. 

Nelly reacted to the video by slamming his deadbeat dad, telling him someone else will have to foot his bills from now on.
#PressPlay: Oop!! Looks like #Nelly went off on his dad hours after #Ashanti posted a video with him on her IG Stories 👀👀👀 (See earlier post)


One of Nelly's followers wrote, "This is just petty and sad. He did not have to do this on social media and you can’t control folks with money. Smh."

Another fan wrote, "Oop. @derrtymo letting everyone know he don’t [expletive] with @ashanti at all 😂🤣😂 so why is his dad! I think Nelly sees this as a betrayal on his dads part. If he does see this as a betrayal, his feelings are understandable."

Nelly was enraged after seeing his father being so friendly with his ex and took to social media to react.

The "Country Grammer" rapper wrote that his dad was an absentee father when he was child. However, he still chose to help his father out as an adult. 


Nelly shared a post bashing his father, sharing a lengthy caption.

He wrote, "Just because it’s ya DNA DONT MAKE YOU A FATHER..!!! Mine never saw me play sports never taught me anything never saw me graduate and I still took care of him for almost 20 years. He never took care of me for half that..!!!! And till this day he still does whatever he wants even though I pay his bills .. 'WELL USE TO' ..!!! That’s Over as of tonight ..!!!"

And till this day he still does what ever he wants even tho I pay his bills .. “WELL USE TO” ..!!! That’s Over as of tonight ..!!!

Nelly didn't reveal if there were other reasons behind his decision to cut his father off, but it's clear his father's latest move was the final straw. 


Nelly wrote, "Hope it was worth it, pops. I’m done with you. No more money from me. Let them pay your bills."



The rapper then proceeded to praise his mother for being both a mother and father to him growing up. 

He wrote in the caption, "S/O to all the mamas that had to be fathers for the kids...to my mama who taught me how to catch and play ball took me to my game, borrowed money to buy me cleats and stood up and cheered when I walked the stage .. I LOVE YOU Mama....!! I GET IT NOW TOTALLY..!!!"

Two questions: (1) What made Cornell decide to go to Ashanti’s show and (2) Why did Ashanti even decide to post a video with Nelly’s dad in the first place?


We hope both Nelly and his Father can make amends soon.
