Nelly and Ashanti, who have been romantically linked on and off since the 2000s, have reignited relationship rumors after being seen together in Las Vegas Saturday night.
The couple sat ringside for the boxing bout between Gervonta Davis and Ryan Garcia, and many of their admirers weighed in on their probable rekindled romance on social media.
Although Nelly, 48, and Ashanti, 42, appeared to stay quiet during the argument, video footage from the occasion showed the singers exiting the venue holding hands.
“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 The Shade Room’s Instagram post.
“You like 50 😂 sit yo old ass down 😂😂😂😂😂 this your queen.”

Many people agreed with the “Bounce With Me” rapper, commenting, “They’re definitely back together,” and “As long as she doesn’t let him waste another 10 years of her life. I’m here for it,” and “I think we all just want them to get married already.”
Another chimed in, writing, “At this point why tf not! But Nelly better get that ring UP. Yesterday’s price is NOT todays price 😂.”

Nelly and Ashanti have yet to openly confirm or deny if they’re officially back together – or just good friends in the industry. However, this isn’t the first time they’ve been the subject of romance rumors in recent months.
Ashanti talked about her relationship with Nelly on “Watch What Happens to Live With Andy Cohen” in December 2022, just a month after their sizzling performance of “Body On Me” onstage.

Initially, I thought, ‘Wow.’ In response to fans witnessing her grinding on her ex after his breakup with Shantel Jackson in 2021, she said, “It was a lot of comments and a lot of people wanting that [us back together].”
“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.”

“My reaction was, ‘Wow.’ It was a lot of comments and a lot of people wanting that [us back together],” she remarked at the time, in response to fans noticing her grinding on her ex-boyfriend after his 2021 separation from Shantel Jackson.
Cohen pressed Ashanti further on the subject, asking, “But you’re not getting back together?”
The “Foolish” singer hesitated to react, just saying, “I mean, I don’t…”
Previously, the couple had a long history of keeping the details of their relationship private. However, Ashanti acknowledged to “Sway in the Morning” in 2014 that Nelly was her first true 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.”
