Nelly and Shantel Jackson have split after six years together.
The ‘Hot In Here’ rapper’s long-time girlfriend has confirmed the pair have gone their separate ways but remain on good terms.
Responding to a follower who asked on Instagram: “R u [and] Nelly still together? I love seeing u guys together”, she replied: “No we’re not….. Just friends.”
The breakup will come as a surprise to their fans, as Nelly claimed just last year that the pair were “working towards” an engagement.
The 46-year-old rapper admitted he couldn’t imagine his life without the 37-year-old model.
He gushed at the time: “I would not want my life to not have Shantel in it. We’ve been seeing each other for five or six years. Any time you can connect with somebody
