Chantelle Jackson visit the daytime talk show, Real, earlier this week, as she opened up for the first time about why her longtime friend, Nelly, decided to separate after seven years of dating. During the sit-down interview, the 37-year-old model told co-hosts that the couple chose to separate due to the lack of time they had to give to their relationship. “My ex-wife and I, we didn’t end up on bad terms,” she explained. “When we started our relationship I was always on the road with him to travel, out of the country, to concerts, all that good stuff, but then when it came to a point I was often at home building my Shoe Gummi, or just working on my brand Business and being on the road, and being on the road less with him, we started growing away.”
She continued, explaining that after realizing that the couple needed some time apart, they decided to see if a breakup could make their relationship stronger, explaining that she and Nelly thought, “Let’s take this time and see if this split leads us back full circle and frankly this What we do,” we call the split, a “break.”

Chantelle and Nelly apparently split over the summer when the model confirmed their breakup in an Instagram comment. After posting an Instagram carousel of the red carpet look, one fan commented, “Still love to see you guys together! [sic],” to which Chantelle replied, “No we’re not…..just friends,” and he didn’t touch on the split further… until now.
