Given that the pair split ten years ago, many are warning the star singer of involving herself in the relationship again.

Ashanti and Nelly might be reigniting their romance after ten years separated, or at least that's what fans say based on a chain. Moreover, social media speculated on the couple reuniting after fans noticed both of them wearing a similar chain. Furthermore, a fan page of the couple posted a picture of Ashanti wearing a thick, shiny, and silver Cuban link chain. In fact, it looks eerily similar to one that the "Hot In Here" rapper often wears. As such, many warned the singer and actress of straying back into the relationship after he apparently "betrayed" him based on her testimony.

Still, it's not like the two completely stayed out of each other's lives, and recent run-ins fueled reunion rumors before this was even a factor. For example, they were recently spotted clubbing after their Nashville concert in early February this year. Meanwhile, back in December of 2022, they performed together for a Christmas concert in Glendale, Arizona. In fact, many people noted their intimate stage chemistry as they performed, which got hopeful fans excited for their reconciliation.

Nelly & Ashanti Turn Heads With Matching Chains

Even with all that fresh excitement, some fans didn't take too kindly to these rumors. “Girl he wasted your time before he will do it again…" one social media user expressed. "They do look good together though, but no.” Another pointed out that maybe some things are just left up to fate. “Chile soulmates are a thing,” they expressed. Despite shippers expressing their happiness, it didn't filter out the notably cautionary messages that frequented social media discussions. “She’s in his chain," another user expressed. "I liked them together but sometimes it’s best to leave people in your past.”

While they didn't say much about why they broke up back in 2013, they dated since their music careers started. Fans were all the more curious when Ashanti expressed that Nelly "betrayed" her in a 2015 interview. Since then, they reconciled and spoke pretty vaguely about what happened, so clearly not much is set in stone. Regardless, come back to HNHH for the latest on Ashanti, Nelly, and their potential romantic rekindling.
