Ashanti and Nelly originally dated on and off from 2003 to 2014. As for why their relationship didn't work at the time, Ashanti explained to the New York Post: “There were good times, and there were times where it was hard . . . just traveling so much and living in two different states. Our careers were, like, taking off back then. It was really hard to try and just do everything.” She also discussed the idea of marriage: "There have been situations that were very, very close to that. I just want it to be the right person. My parents have been married for, like, 40-plus years. So, you know, that’s kind of like the template for me.” Be on the lookout for further updates on Ashanti and Nelly on HotNewHipHop.
