Nelly, Ashanti reignite romance rumors with fight night date in Vegas

It’s getting Hot in Herre.

Nelly and Ashanti – who have been romantically linked on and off since the 2000s – are fueling romance rumors once again after they were spotted together in Las Vegas Saturday night.

The duo sat ringside for the boxing match between Gervonta Davis and Ryan Garcia, with many of their fans taking to social media to weigh in on their potential reignited romance.

Although Nelly, 48, and Ashanti, 42, appeared to lay low during the actual fight, video footage from the event showed the musicians holding hands as they exited the venue.

“Yo mo! I know we not seeing eye to eye either really but from lil bro to big bro STOP PLAYING AND MARRY THIS WOMAN BRO!” fellow rapper Bow Wow wrote in the comments section of an Instagram post from The Shade Room.

Ashanti and Nelly are facing romance rumors once again after they were spotted holding hands in Las Vegas Saturday night.
The two have been romantically linked on and off since the early 2000s.

Many agreed with the “Bounce With Me” rapper, writing things like, “They’re definitely back together,” “As long as she don’t let him waste another 10 years of her life. I’m here for it,” and “I think that we all just want them to get married already.”

Nelly and Ashanti have yet to publicly confirm or deny whether they’re officially back on – or just good industry pals. However, this certainly isn’t the first time they’ve faced romance rumors in recent months.

Ashanti shared some solo shots from the fight – sans Nelly – via her Instagram Stories.
She has yet to address her latest outing with her former flame.

Following their steamy onstage performance of “Body On Me” in December 2022, Ashanti addressed her connection with Nelly during her appearance on “Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen” that same month.

“My reaction was, ‘Wow.’ It was a lot of comments and a lot of people wanting that [us back together],” she said at the time, in reaction to fans seeing her grinding on her former flame following his 2021 split from Shantel Jackson.

“What I will say is, we’re in a better place. You know, ’cause before, it was like [mimics fighting]. But we’re cool now. Yeah, we have some conversations, you know. So it’s cool.”

Cohen continued to press Ashanti on the topic, asking, “But you’re not getting back together?”

The “Foolish” singer struggled to find words, simply responding, “I mean, I don’t…”

Reps for Nelly and Ashanti did not immediately respond to Page Six’s requests for comment.

Nelly’s last public relationship was with Shantel Jackson, whom he dated for six years.

The duo previously had a long history of staying tight-lipped about the terms of their relationship over the years. However, Ashanti admitted in a 2014 interview with “Sway in the Morning” that Nelly was her first real love.

”It’s a very small industry. Are we gonna see each other? Yeah… I’m not bitter,” she later told Hot 97.

“I feel like in a relationship, it’s like ping-pong. Sometimes you love them, sometimes you hate them. That’s a real statement, everyone goes through that.”
