NELLY & ASHANTI REPORTEDLY ‘VERY HAPPY’ AFTER REKINDLING RELATIONSHIP

Nelly and Ashanti are said to be “very happy” after the pair rekindled their previous romance following their initial split back in 2013.
After sparking romance rumors over the past few weeks, a source confirmed to Entertainment Tonight that the former couple have repaired their relationship and are happier than ever.
“Both of them are very happy,” one source said, and another confirmed that the couple is “enjoying their time together.”
Rumors began to swirl back in February, after they were both caught wearing the same chain.
In a side-by-side photo shared on social media, the former flames could be seen donning what appeared to be matching iced-out Cuban link chains around their necks. The chain was eerily similar to the one Nelly had been spotted rocking at the 2023 Grammys.
Following that, the Country Grammar rapper and the former Murder Inc. singer delivered a steamy performance of their hit “Body on Me,” during a pool party, only adding fuel to the fire.
It was evident from video footage from the intimate performance that there is still chemistry between Ashanti and Nelly as they touched up on one another, which drew a reaction from the otherwise dreary party crowd.
Most recently, the pair was spotted at the Gervonta Davis vs. Ryan Garcia fight, leading Bow Wow to offer some unsolicited advice to the St. Louis-born rapper, where he urged Nelly to marry the R&B singer.
“Yo mo! I know we not seeing eye-to-eye either,” he wrote in an Instagram comment. “But from little bro to big bro, STOP PLAYING AND MARRY THIS WOMAN BRO! You like 50 [laughing face emoji]. Sit your old ass down [laughing face emojis] this your queen.”
Nelly and Ashanti dated on-and-off for over a decade after hooking up in 2003, and while rumors of them reconciling have circulated for years, the speculation seems to be heating more than ever of late.
