Chances that St. Louis-bred rap star Nelly celebrated Father’s Day this month are a little slim to none if you take his recent sentiments about his father into account, which he exposed via Twitter on Saturday (June 24).

In a seemingly random tirade against his father, the Country Grammar artist called his father out for his what Nelly considers a deadbeat disposition. He revealed that his father wasn’t in his life as a child and suggests that he only shows up now for the cash payout. Nelly is a proud, self-proclaimed “Mama’s boy,” he boasted in another tweet, saluting her for always stepping up as a mother when he needed it most.

Fans were a bit confused as to where the scolding against his father came from so suddenly. But after The Shade Room posted Derrty Mo’s father in a Snapchat video with his former R&B songstress girlfriend Ashanti, suspicions arose that the clip could have been the trigger that set off Nelly’s Twitter censure for his dad.

  1. In the video, Ashanti and Mr. Haynes share friendly smiles and jokes for the camera after it appears that they caught up backstage at a show she presumably performed at
  2. Meanwhile, Nelly was venting a few things off of his chest regarding Mr. Haynes, who he also revealed he’d unfortunately be cutting off financially as well...
