Singer Ashanti, 34, is a beautiful and wealthy young woman, and many thought she would marry rapper Nelly after the two dated for nearly 10 years. The star sat down with talk show host Meredith Vieira to talk about their break up last year among other things. While the nitty-gritty details behind their split were never really revealed, the singer explains to Vieira that it basically came down to trust. She said;;
"I think sometimes when people have their own insecurities it allows them to act out of character. I've been betrayed," she says. "Again, you just have to grow, you have to grow up and accept responsibilities for the things that you do. I'm not a big fan of people being cowards. I think it's really important to know yourself and understand what you want and get it. I'm in a different place right now."
