Ashanti Responds to Nelly "Denying" Their Relationship

Published January 7, 2011

Ashanti has something to say.

Nelly set the internet ablaze last week when media outlets reported that he denied ever dating Murder Inc.'s former first lady. Speaking with BET.com shortly after her performance for “106 & Park's” 10th anniversary, the R&B singer responded to rumors that Pimp Juice denied their relationship. 

"So one of the rumors that I would like to clear up, the whole Nelly-Ashanti, and Nelly's denying and Nelly's not claiming; let's clear that up right now,” she told BET.com. "Me and Nelly are good friends. I never said I was his girl, I never quote, unquote, “claimed him,” I never said we were an item and neither has he, so there you have it. We're good friends. The whole, 'oh he's denying and she's denying,’ no claiming. Come on, son!"

As previously reported, Nelly stopped by Chicago station WCGI to chat with radio personality Loni Swain last week and made the comments in question.
"I've never said I was in a relationship, she's never said she's in a relationship, so I don't know where they do that at," Nelly told Swain. "But the thing is, we've always admitted we're friends. We hang out. She's a sweet girl, very pretty girl, very talented, but she does her thing as far as her career and I'm doing my thing as far as my career now. The end results are inconclusive."
