Rapper Nelly and his girlfriend LaShontae Heckard are shown showing affection to each other in a photobooh in a picture the model uploaded Monday on Instagram.
The couple cozied up in a California photobooth and Heckard captioned the picture, "Him made cuz I'm a beast in bowling #cookienomilk #imlying #ialmostsliddownthelanewiththeball #hehadtosaveme #ibeatblueanddeemarietho."
Speculation of them dating started in January 2013 shortly after he ended an alleged 10-year relationship with singer Ashanti. Heckard posted pictures of her and her boyfriend online, publicizing their romance, and Nelly took her to his Black and White Ball in December. His daughter later posted a picture with Heckard that she captioned "She loves me," according to TheYBF.
The couple been spotted coupled up at different events together including the 2013 BET Awards.
Heckard opened up about her relationship with a mystery man, who many assume to be Nelly, in an interview with Edge Magazine.
"If you see us out you can assume whatever you want, if you never see us you can just keep guessing. Usually I do it for fun just to get people worked up, so I'll show parts of him or blur out his face," she said. "Am I really going to show him? No. Have we been in highly public places together? Yes. But I'm not an attention seeker. If you happen to see us then you see us."
