Many people were talking about a potential Nelly and Ashanti reconnection of romance after Nelly hugged her during the Fat Joe vs. Ja Rule ‘VERZUZ’ battle on Tuesday night but Ashanti shut down any possibility of that.
“Listen, there’s nothing happening,” Ashanti said during a recent group Instagram Live session, as pointed out by HotNewHipHop. Later in the chat, Ashanti confirmed that she’s actually in a relationship. Nelly later commented himself, saying he hugged Ashanti because he didn’t want there to be any uncomfortable feelings. So, no rekindling relationship for Nelly and Ashanti.
