Nelly denies dating ashanti
This week, the leaders of the once popular Murda Inc., chatted with Power 105’s The Breakfast Club. Unlike their previous interview with Hot 97, the two discuss what ruined their relationship with Jay Z (during his infamous Nas battle), the real extent of Irv Gotti’s relationship with Ashanti (and if Nelly Influenced her to leave the label) and years later, how they feel about Karrine Steffans’ book. On what ruined his relationship with Jay Z: I wanna do great, great things. She’s this princess that I created and the ‘murder’ wasn’t good for the image anymore. Me and Shanti had our thing when we went through something.
Well, Irv stopped by and chatted with Hot 97’s Funkmaster Flex and ended up confirming that he and Ashanti used to get it on back then. It was a lot of money, everyone was number one, and apparently everyone was smashing each other back then.
Now things are downright “ratchet,” as Ashanti’s younger sister Shia even threatened Nelly’s new girlfriend ,up and coming actress and video vixen, Tae Heckard, not to come to New York anytime soon because she’d get dealt with.
Tae wasn’t in the least bit moved by the warning, and even Nelly took to his Twitter account to suggest that he doubts Ashanti’s little sis is “bout that life.”Despite that, Ashanti’s loyal fans have been in Tae’s mentions since the news broke and she’s pretty much been given the “jump off” and “side piece” labels.
But despite them having time to get close while touring together on the TRL Tour, she didn’t take it to the next level.
She would go on to record with and fall in love with Jay Z, and he would just have to settle for recording with Kelly and dating Ashanti.
