Are R&B songstress Ashanti and her ex-boyfriend Nelly on the verge of getting back together? First, these two were rumored to be hanging out — and might have even hooked up — over Super Bowl weekend and now Ashanti has revealed that she never says “never” with regards to her getting back with her ex.

During a recent interview with Madame Noire, Ashanti was asked about her upcoming album, BraveHeart, and whether she would ever consider rekindling her romance with Nelly. Her answer?

“I’m smart enough to know that never is a strong word. You have to learn to kind of never say never because you never know. But at that moment [when she said getting back together with Nelly was a negative] that’s what I felt.”

The moment in question refers to an interview with Hot 97 back in December, when the Long Island native spoke on her relationship with Nelly, and how he both impacted her life and her music.

At the time, she had this to say about whether there was a possibility of reuniting with her former flame:

“Negative. Nelly and I are kind of in the space where, I’m kinda like focusing on my career, he’s focusing on what he’s doing, you know there’s a lot of things that happened this year, you know a lot of things kinda went public more than other things have gone public before, you know what I’m saying? And um, I kinda just… I have to do me. We’re in that space right now and there are things that were said and things that were done, that probably shouldn’t have been said or done, but they have been.”

But considering how much Ashanti’s opened up in detail about her relationship with Nelly — both in interviews and her music — who’s to say that time hasn’t healed the “Scars” she talks about in the song of the same title? After all, it sounds like Nelly is her “First Real Love.” Can a reunion can be in the near future?

Do you think Ashanti and her ex Nelly should get back together? Sound off in the comments below!
