50 Cent doesn’t miss an opportunity to poke fun at someone else’s expense and Monday’s (April 24) target was Irv Gotti. Following rumors that Nelly and Ashanti are back together, 50 took it as his chance to rub the gossip in Irv’s face.
The Power creator took to Instagram to share a video of the rapper and singer sharing a steamy moment onstage at Tao Beach in Las Vegas, NV. 50 reposted the video with Irv’s face next to it implying that the producer was surprised to hear about Nelly and Ashanti’s possible rekindling.
“Man, somebody check on Irv Gotti ASAP!” he wrote in the photo. “Know he going through it right now.”
“HE WILL BE AIGHT [laughing face emojis],” he wrote in the caption. “I was in love wit her, and she just popped up with Nelly. LOL.”
The G-Unit mogul’s trolling follows Irv’s confession last year that he and Ashanti were once an item. Ashanti has never confirmed his claim.
50 Cent and Irv have had beef that has been going on for over two decades. The two have been at odds because the Murder Inc. founder’s artist and friend Ja Rule was allegedly robbed at gunpoint in Jamaica in 1999 by an associate of the television executive allegedly per HipHopDX.
Relationship rumors have been heating up between Ashanti and Nelly ever since their performance back in December. Recently, however, the two were seen holding hands in Las Vegas over the weekend. On Saturday night (April 22), the two attended the sold-out Gervonta Davis vs. Ryan Garcia boxing match at T-Mobile Arena. The rapper and singer held hands in video footage captured after the fight.

After the former flames’ steamy December moment on stage, 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.
“I saw a lot of comments,” she said. “My reaction was wow. It was a lot of comments and a lot of people wanting that.”
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…”
“I’ll tell you this, “We’re in a better place ’cause before it was like…” she added while playfully making a punching motion. “But you know, we’re cool now. We had some conversations, you know, so it was cool.”
