Ashanti downplayed her relationship with Gotti during an interview with Angie Martinez after his Drink Champs comments. “Let’s clear this up. We’re not gonna say relationship," the singer said at the time. "We dealt with each other, but was Irv my boyfriend? Was I his girlfriend? Never…Irv had several girlfriends, so I’m a little confused by the label and the description.”

Later, Gotti addressed the situation in a post on The Shade Room's Instagram account. “Did I bring Ashanti up? You did it. Here’s what I’m going to say. I wish Ashanti nothing but the best. I’m not hooked on her, like ‘I can’t get over her.’ It’s none of that sh*t," Gotti said. "I got paid to do a documentary on my life and on Murder Inc. If I didn’t talk about Ashanti, you would have been like what kind of bullsh*t is this that he didn’t speak about her. She’s too important to Murder Inc. and his life. They tried to #MeToo me. You know what the f*ck they said. Stop it Shade Room. You the shadiest ones." Be on the lookout for further updates on Nelly and Ashanti on HotNewHipHop.
