Nelly and Ashanti Possibly Back On?

Rapper Nelly and singer Ashanti may have rekindled their romance, following in the footsteps of stars like Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck as well as Gabrielle Union and Dwayne Wade. Hollywood keeps these stars very busy, so on-and-off is pretty normal for them. However, fans are really rooting for Nelly and Ashanti.

How Did It Start Again?

It all (re-) started with a questionable performance from the pair in Las Vegas. They sang and rapped along to their hit “Body On Me.” Plus shortly after that the couple were seen holding hands at the Gervonta Davis vs. Ryan Garcia fight last month. According to PEOPLE, a source said the pair “have been touring and performing together and just hanging.” Entertainment Tonight reports they both have rekindled their relationship and are allegedly very happy.

Take Us Back To The Beginning Of Their Love

This dyamic duo was unstoppable for a decade, breaking up in 2013. The 48-year-old rapper and 42-year-old singer started dating in 2003 after meeting at a press conference. Nelly opened up in an interview a few years before they broke up explaining why he was waiting for marriage. The “Flap Your Wings” rapper explained that he is not a person that wants to get married multiple times. “If I’ma do it, I’ma do it. You’re dying if you leave me,’ added Nelly born Cornell Iral Haynes Jr.

The pair was pretty secretive about actually dating in the beginning the first time, so no surprise if we find out they are together a few years from now. Maybe second time is a charm and a ring will present itself in a few years or maybe even months…

Someone Check On Irv Gotti

Social media was going crazy when the idea of these two getting back together circulated, but people were thinking of someone else; Irv Gotti. The co-founder of Murder Inc. Records has had a lot to say about the New York singer the past year. Ashanti had to set the record straight about his allegations. Gotti was claiming that him and Ashanti were dating at some point earlier in her career. However, she firmly denied those rumors after remaining silent for a while as he spread a lot of dirty laundry.
