Ashanti didn’t mince words about his reunion with ex Nelly during a battle of Verzuz. She said it was “awkward” after not seeing Nelly for at least 6 years and revealed that she had no idea he was coming at all.

When nelly showed up to be sure Ja Rule’s team during the Battle of Verzuz between Ja Rule and Fat Joe, he didn’t say a word to his ex Ashanti. “What’s crazy is that he didn’t say anything,” Ashanti said on Power 105.1, around 4.30am of the video. “First of all, I had no idea he would be there. I said [Fat] Joe, ‘Joe, why don’t you tell me he was [going to be there]? ‘ He said to me, ‘I know. It’s terrible… I couldn’t risk you… ‘He said to me,’ I couldn’t risk you not coming if you knew he was going to be there. ‘ I said, ‘Joe …’ “

Ashanti added that the reunion was “very unexpected. I hadn’t seen him for about 6 years or more, spoken or seen, so it was a bit awkward. Nelly and Ashanti kissed on stage at one point. When the host Angie martinez referred to Fat Joe when asking if there was a chance to revive between Ashanti and Nelly, Ashanti pointed out that the answer to this question is “no”.

But Fat Joe is not giving up hope. He commented on the clip released by Power 105.1, “Never Give Up on Love.”

Ashanti and Nelly started dating in 2003 and have grown into one of the most powerful couples in hip hop. They were a couple for 11 years until 2014. Trust between the couple finally returned and Ashanti opened up about their separation in 2015.

“I think sometimes when people have their own insecurities it allows them to act out of character,” Ashanti said on The Meredith Vieira show. ” I’ve been betrayed. You just have to grow up. You have to grow up. You have to take responsibility for the things you do. I’m not a big fan of cowardly people.
