Irv Gotti Drags Ashanti, Spills Tea About How He Was Smashing Her While She Was With Nelly

The Source

Irv Gotti is a popular hip-hop producer that blew up around the same time as Nelly and Ashanti. He produced Vanessa Carlton’s third album and most recently Nicki Minaj’s single “Moment 4 Life.”


In his interview with Funkmaster Flex, the legendary rapper-turned-host asked point-blank about Irv Gotti and Ashanti’s alleged affair. He said yes. And that the tension between him and Nelly revolved around the fact that they were “smashing the same girl.”


Ashanti and Nelly were quietly together for ten years, before splitting somewhere around 2009. Ashanti’s only explanation for the break-up was that she had been betrayed. “I think sometimes when people have their own insecurities it allows them to act out of character. I’ve been betrayed.”
