Yikes! Seems Nelly is already facing the consequences of his drug-related arrest!
The Hot In Herre rapper was scheduled to perform at Missouri State University next week…
Until the university cancelled the concert on Tuesday without any explanation.
It's pretty suspicious timing, right?

It was only four days ago when he was arrested, and Nelly's already been released on a $10,000 bond.
Guess Missouri State University doesn't care, or hasn't seen the rapper's latest Instagram post, where he writes:
Yesterday, Nelly's bus was pulled over for not having the proper stickers on it, and the cops decided to search it when they smelled marijuana.
They found both pot and, according to them, a small bag of meth, along with some guns. Nelly was arrested for felony maryjane possession, but his lawyer, Scott Rosenblum, says the arrest is crap.

Rosenblum said, "Nelly will not be associated with the contraband that was allegedly discovered." He also added that 15 to 20 people had access to the bus before it even drove off, some of whom were still on the bus when it was searched!
He also says the drug found wasn't meth, it was "a small quantity of [MDMA/Ecstasy]."
We'll have to see how this plays out.

Oh it's hot in here all right.
Nelly was arrested Saturday morning after a state trooper pulled his tour bus over in Putnam County, Tennessee.

According to reports, the recording artist was detained after a search uncovered marijuana, meth, as well as multiple handguns in the vehicle — which is quite an unlucky break seeing as how the bus was originally pulled over for simply failing to display a U.S. Department of Transportation and International Fuel Tax Association sticker.
Now the 40-year-old St. Louis rapper faces legal trouble over charges of felony possession of drugs, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. Brian Jones, another passenger with Nelly, also sits in hot water for possession of a handgun.
Remember his 2012 incident when officials found heroin after raiding his bus? Guess some lessons are just hard to learn.

Such a diplomatic answer from the songstress!
Although Ashanti and Nelly have been broken up and the rapper has moved on, their relationship is still a pretty hot topic.
They did date for quite a while — on and off for over 10 years!
The What's Luv singer opened up to Meredith Vieira about her failed relationship and revealed how insecurities drove them apart! She even felt betrayed!

But that wasn't the only juicy thing Ashanti talked about.
