Nelly & Ashanti Romance Rumors Heat Up As Pair Seen Holding Hands
Nelly and Ashanti have fans talking as romance rumors began running rampant after the two were spotted holding hands in Las Vegas over the weekend. On Saturday night (April 22), the two attended the sold-pout Gervonta Davis vs. Ryan Garcia boxing match at T-Mobile Arena. The rapper and singer were seen holding hands in video footage captured after the fight.

Several fans commented on how they want the two back together as did Bow Wow who voiced his opinion on the potential reunion between the two. “Yo mo! I know we not seeing eye-to-eye either,” Bow Wow wrote in the comment section of the video of the two.
“But from little bro to big bro, STOP PLAYING AND MARRY THIS WOMAN BRO! You like 50. Sit your old a– down this your queen.” Ashanti and Nelly first began dating in 2003, but their relationship ended a decade later. In December, the “Foolish” singer stopped by Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen and she addressed how fans were reacting to seeing the two during their latest performance together.
“My reaction was wow. It was a lot of comments and a lot of people wanting that,” she said. “What I will say is we’re in a better place.”
Cohen then asked if the two would ever have a chance to get back together. She seemingly struggled for words saying, “I mean, I don’t…”
Neither Nelly nor Ashanti have ever been married. Ashanti does not have children, but Nelly has two adult children: Chanelle and Cornell Haynes. Nelly also takes care of his deceased sister’s children, Sydney and Lil Shawn. Back in 2014, Nelly documented their lives on the reality tv show Nellyville.
