Angie Stone and Ashanti

Reported by Kacie Whaley

Have you been keeping up with “R&B Divas: Atlanta?”  The reunion show with host Wendy Williams recently aired, and the two-part special was full of tears, drama, accusations, and the usual messiness that Ms. Williams is famous for instigating.

One of the most notable moments of the reunion was when R&B veteran Angie Stone walked off the stage after being questioned about her manager/ boyfriend of eight years, Ashanti.  Williams claimed that during the commercial break, she heard Ashanti call Stone an ‘idiot.’  She then asked Stone about allegations that the couple does not sleep in the same room.  Aggravated, Stone walked off stage, and later came back only to announce that she will no longer be a part of “R&B Divas.”  Now, an anonymous source says that Williams’ nosiness may not be the only thing that set Angie off.  Ashanti has supposedly been having affairs with several women, including a staff member of “R&B Divas: Atlanta.”

The unnamed insider broke the news to Madame Noire.  She explained that while it is common knowledge among the reality show’s cast that Ashanti is a dirty dog, Stone is the only one who claims she has proof that a staff member has been cheating with Ashanti.

“I haven’t seen any real proof. The person she’s accusing has been married for 20 years and just renewed her vows in March. From what I here, he [Ashanti] has a few ‘friends.’ That’s the reality. Whether or not one of those friends was one of the people in our production crew, I don’t know. We’ve all heard and got wind of it. Everybody in the cast and crew knows. I just found out someone who’s a friend of the family that I’ve known since I was child was messing with him for the last six years. But as far as her saying it was someone on our production team, and claiming that she has phone records and text messages to support it, well if you do, provide it to us. Obviously, that’s a breach of our agreements. You can’t be sleeping with somebody that’s on the show. But she’s yet to provide that documentation to the production company or legal. She’s been saying it for some time. But we don’t have the proof on our end to support her claim.”

The source also spoke on Stone’s behavior during the reunion, including moments that were not aired.

“The behavior during the reunion was bizarre when Wendy asked about the status of her relationship. She walked off the show and got upset, was flustered and ‘resigned.’ I was like, ‘Is this because you know how crazy you look and this is your way of kind of spinning it around?’ I know they’re not together and I do know that she has a different manager. I’m hearing Debra Antney who is Wacka Flocka’s mom is now her manager. I know that much. I just don’t know why she’s fixated with this one staff member and has been since the very beginning. She’s tried to physically put hands on her. There was one scene that I wish they would have shown. The person in question was trying to convince her to come back out and Ashanti looked at the woman, and [Stone] didn’t like the way that he looked at her even though she was talking to the both of them. She just went back in her dressing room. I don’t know if it’s just a personal thing, but I really don’t think the person on our team would do that.”

Many fans of the show have expressed that there is a lack of chemistry between the couple.  Viewers have also noticed the somber look on Ashanti’s face whenever Angie brings up her desire for Ashanti to propose to her.  These allegations could explain some of that behavior.

What do you think?  Could Ashanti be cheating on Angie?  Do you think after all of this, we’ll see Angie on another season of “R&B Divas?”

    Ashanti doesn’t even like Angie. A blind man could see that. Who believes that this relationship is headed to the alter, really? 8 years…? Yeah right.

    Angie needs to re-evaluate herself. She is a great woman, but lacks heart! Angie doesn’t believe in herself. Once Angie starts to believe in herself, then things will fall into place. This Ashante is a hanger’On’er! Angie, knows it, but can’t believe it. Let it go…

    When she had the nerve to get on WifeSwap with her ‘boyfriend,’ he was shady from the very start!

    Something about him always having to thwart his man-hood everywhere and taking jabs at Angie about her weight really did it for me.

    I don’t feel bad for her. I saw his shifty ways even before she did, which is sad and very thirsty of her…

    If he’s not for you, then he’s against you….GET RID OF HIM and find peace within yourself and your talent. You don’t need him. Get a new Manager, he can be replaced. He needs you…not the other way around

    It’s a funny thing that this came out because my husband who has never watched the show before the reunion, just happened to stop and look at what all the drama was about. When he saw Ashanti talking to Angie, he said to me: “That guy is fooling around on her. He don’t love her and will never marry her”. I started to say: “How do you know?” But I thought against it because my husband always calls it exactly right in those and other instances of wrong doing. Even if it is a program on tv or in the movies that he has never seen before. He will sum up what the character will do or what type of person they are. He is always right!…so far. Angie, I hope this time he is wrong.

    One thing I must add though Angie, it stands to reason that if you have to continue to ask Ashanti when is he going to marry you, then that is not his intent. If he truly loves and wants to marry you then you would not have to wonder if he will ever do it because he will be ready and willing on his own to ask you. You don’t have to almost beg someone to find value in you. Find it in yourself first, then you will attract the person who will find it in you enough to want to spend the rest of their life with you.

    Miss Stone why can’t you pick a winner in a man?I remember your relationship with De Angelo now this Ashanti. I think you need counseling about your self esteem.Maybe try it solo for a long time until you reconcile this issue.For one so talented you do not need this kind of abuse in your life.If you have to ask a man when he is going to marry you he probably does have it in mind in the first place.I have chosen not to marry several men in my life but I never asked the first one to marry me.I don’t care how modern we become some things have to still stay traditional and one of them is a man asking a woman to marry her.God knows of all his imperfections a man is one of them.You will have enough problems with a man when he thinks he wants to be with you as a husband let alone being harassed and asked by a woman to be married to her.A marriage is in the relationship not in a piece of paper and a ceremony.Best of luck to you in finding a man that truly loves you not these users, mental and verbal abusers.
