Looks like there is some bad blood between Nelly and his father. The STL rep had some not so nice words for his father Cornell Haynes, Sr. as he vented on Twitter about Cornell Sr. not being there for him as he was growing up. He also went on to say that he will no longer be supporting his father financially.

He added on Instagram, “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 to care of me for half that..!!!! 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 went on to praise his mother for being his main supporter.

Nelly has not said what led to him write off his father, but his ex-girlfriend Ashanti may have something to do with it. Last night, Ashanti performed in St. Louis and posted a video backstage with Cornell Sr. A few hours after this video was posted, Nelly snapped on Twitter.
