We all loved Ashanti and Nelly as a couple, but recently Nelly’s been on an all-media diet, denying that he and the ex-Murder Inc. princess were ever an item. And according to Ashanti herself, that is the absolute truth.
During an appearance at 106 & Park’s 10th anniversary episode this week, the 29-year-old explained her side of the story to BET.com. “So one of the rumors that I would like to clear up, the whole Nelly-Ashanti, and Nelly’s denying and Nelly’s not claiming; let’s clear that up right now,” she says adamantly. “Me and Nelly are good friends. I never said I was his girl, I never quote, unquote, ‘claimed him.’ I never said we were an item and neither has he, so there you have it. We’re good friends. The whole, ‘Oh he’s denying and she’s denying,’ no claiming. Come on, son!”
