Nelly and Ashanti dated on and off from 2003 to 2013 before calling it quits after a decade together. Nelly would go on to date Shantel Jackson for a few years before they parted ways in the summer of 2021, Us Weekly reports.
Ashanti has always done a good job of keeping her romantic life private after parting ways with Nelly. Last year, she claimed “narcissist” Murder Inc. CEO Irv Gotti “lied” about the yearslong affair he alleged they had during Ashanti’s early days on his record label, according to Vulture.
Fans have been hopeful that Ashanti and Nelly would give things another try when the two crossed paths at the Ja Rule and Fat Joe Verzuz battle in September 2021.

In February, Nelly opened up about how time helped him and Ashanti mend their broken fences.
“Time does wonders for a lot of different things,” he told ET.
“And time is one [of] those things that allows you time to reflect on what’s what, and you get a chance to see things in a different light and see your faults. So I think we both did that and it’s cool that we just friends.”
