R&B vocalist Ashanti is making a major comeback, with her fifth studio album, BraveHeart, hitting stores and iTunes yesterday, March 4. While making the rounds to promote her new music, Ashanti stopped by 105.1’s Breakfast Club, where she was unsurprisingly asked about her relationship with ex-boyfriend, Nelly. So, how does Ashanti describe things between her and Nelly?
“I will say that there was a space where it was bad. Like it was really bad. Are we cool [now]? Yeah, we’re OK,” she told the radio hosts.
In talking about what made the breakup “bad,” host Charlamagne asked Ashanti about a rumor that Ashanti cheated on Nelly — a theory which was also implied by Nelly when he joined the Breakfast Club months prior.
“Um… no…” Ashanti coyly responded, adding “we both definitely made mistakes in a lot of things, but what I will say is things do come full circle. You know, it was both people.”
Charlamagne noted that Ashanti’s answer seemed to be pretty tame — as though she still believes that he’s the one for her. When the hosts asked Ashanti if her family still wants to see Nelly in her life, she playfully responded, “Nelly is a really good person, and has a really really good heart.”
“He’s the one,” Charlamagne chimed in. Hmm… if you ask us, it kinda sounds that way too.
