We hope he informed Ashanti beforehand, because it would hurt to find out - via the Internet - the man you were having sex with for all those years, the one who made you a star, is dropping you like a hot potato. Damn. Damn. Damn.
BTW: Is Ashanti still relevant? Who is looking forward to another Ashanti album? Not us.
