When the couple was spotted holding hands at the Gervonta Davis vs. Ryan Garcia bout in Las Vegas last month, it gave rise to rumors of a passionate reunion. They later sang “Body On Me” together sensually during a concert in Arizona, which fueled rumors about their connection even more.
When Ashanti was pictured wearing Nelly’s necklace around her neck in February, fans saw further indications of their revived romance. According to sources for Entertainment Tonight, “Nelly and Ashanti are really enjoying their time together.”
The couple split up in 2013 after meeting at a Grammy press conference in 2003. On the other hand, Ashanti said in an appearance on Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live” last year that she and Nelly were “in a better place” and had “some conversations.”
Nelly expressed his opinions on marriage and his relationship with Ashanti in a 2010 interview with Rap-Up, saying, “I think you really have to be friends first. It’s not about how long it takes. I’m not a person that wants to get married more than once. If I’ma do it, I’ma do it. You’re dying if you leave me.”
A source close to Nelly and Ashanti said they have recently been spotted “hanging” out while touring and performing. Fans are eagerly looking for indications of a deeper commitment as the couple continues to work together and hang out.
Nelly and Ashanti have openly expressed their love for one another over the years, even when they weren’t together. Many people hope their rekindled romance will last now that they have reconnected.
