Nelly Wants To Marry Ashanti, But…
In a recent interview with Rap-Up TV, Nelly talked about his album 5.0 and his relationship with Ashanti. He explains why he keeps saying they are “really good friends” and what marriage means to him.
“I think you really have to be friends first. It’s not about how long it takes,” he explains. “I’m not a person that wants to get married more than once. If I’ma do it, I’ma do it. You’re dying if you leave me.” Back in early October rumors of Ashanti and Nelly reconciling after breaking up for about a year had these two annoying the media with their “we’re just good friends” cover-up. But it got extra hot when Nelly played down the dating rumor at a Chicago radio interview:
“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.”
The reaction from this was pretty harsh, saying Nelly wasn’t “claiming” her. So Ashanti fired back and reiterated what Nelly said, just with a NYC attitude:
>“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!”
Diddy is doing the same thing! Nelly isn’t the only one hesitant about marriage. In a recent interview with The View, Diddy got personal about why he hasn’t jumped into marriage at all in his life after sharing six children with three women in his life:
