From personal experience, I can tell you that sometimes time apart is exactly what’s needed to make a relationship stronger than ever… and for some reason, Ashanti and Nelly have always seemed perfect together to me, so I’m here for this.
Apparently, It’s getting “Hot In Herre” once again for a former couple as they are said to be rekindling their flame. For years, Nelly and Ashanti were one of rap and R&B’s most well known pop culture couple obsessions, even ten years after they broke up. However, that seems to have changed over the past few months, as more and more rumors and hints point to the two being back together. Moreover, sources reportedly close to the two recently spoke to the folks at Entertainment Tonight and confirmed that they were back together.
“Both of them are very happy,” one source said. Another added that the stars are “enjoying their time together.” It’s been clear for a while that the former couple was on consistently good terms, but this is a big update to that amicable relationship.
For those unaware, rumors of their rekindled romance first started floating around in February. Furthermore, the first piece of fan evidence came when eagle-eyed social media users spotted them apparently wearing the same chain in different posts. In fact, it’s very similar to the Cuban link that Nelly took to the Grammys this year, which Ashanti then posted a picture in. Of course, it’s not like the Country Grammar rapper has a monopoly on that style of jewelry, so it remained just speculation.
However, a more suggestive piece of evidence was their intimate performance at a pool party, which saw them get up close and personal. With that steamy video in mind, fans couldn’t imagine it being anything other than a relationship. Still, Ashanti had previously denied that she was getting back together with Nelly in an interview with Andy Cohen following a 2021 concert. “I saw a lot of comments,” the “Body On Me” singer explained. “I mean, my reaction was, ‘wow!’ It was a lot of comments and people wanting that. What I will say is we’re in a better place. We’re cool now. We had some conversations, so it’s cool.”
Meanwhile, the alleged reconciled couple also popped out together during the fight between Ryan Garcia and Gervonta Davis. What’s more is that people spotted them holding hands as they left the premises. No matter what’s going on between the two, it’s safe to say that they know exactly what they’re doing. Maybe it’s just a much closer friendship than social media expects, or they’re just letting people connect the dots for themselves. Regardless, would you be here for seeing these two get that old thing back?
