Ashanti Reveals What Her Ex-Nelly Whispered In Her Ear During VERZUZ Battle, Says Run-In Was A ‘Little Awkward’

We all saw that random moment when Nelly jetted across the stage to hug his ex-Ashanti and whisper in her ear during the Ja Rule vs. Fat Joe VERZUZ Battle.

Now, Ashanti is sharing what he said during the “little awkward” moment…

Ashanti and Nelly were one of Hip Hop’s most-loved couples during the early 2000s. They first met in 2003 at a Grammy Awards press conference. Then, dating rumors began shortly after. There was even marriage talk at one point during their decade long relationship, however, they never made it down the aisle. They called it quits in 2013.

 

Since then, they’ve gone their separate ways.

Ashanti has been living her very best life over the years. She’s glowing these days with tons of amazing things coming down the pipeline. Sis has been out in these streets, touring with Omarion and Bow Wow on the Millennium Tour, jetting off to the islands, slaying birthday parties and more.

The Grammy Award winning singer was front and center to support her Murda Inc. homie Ja Rule during his VERZUZ Battle with Fat Joe. The R&B singer was minding her business on stage before her ex-Nelly made a viral moment.

The Country Grammar” rapper saw Ashanti looking good across the stage and made a beeline to her with his arms extended as if he wanted a hug. He leaned in for a hug and whispered something in her ear. Check it:

Did Nelly walk over and try to ask for a hug from Ashanti? #VERZUZ pic.twitter.com/ATd4adeIY4

The former Murda Inc. First Lady sat down to chop it up with Power 105’s Angie Martinez and the radio host didn’t waste any time to ask her about the viral moment with her ex.

"It was very unexpected," she said. "I hadn’t seen him in, like, six years. Spoken or seen. It was a little awkward!"

So, what did Nelly whisper in her ear?

"You know what the crazy part is, he didn’t say anything," she explained. "He didn’t say anything. First of all, I didn’t know he was going to be there. I told Joe, like, ‘Joe, why didn’t you tell me he was gonna be here?’ He was like, ‘Sis, I know, it’s terrible! I couldn’t risk you not coming if you knew he was gonna be there,” she said impersonating Joe perfectly.

Ashanti went on to reveal she’s currently in a relationship with someone, but she’s keeping it “low and private.” She said “some of us” might know her boyfriend, but she’s not revealing who he is.

After several failed relationships, Ashanti said she hopes she gets it right this time around, but admitted it’s a lot balancing her career, personal and love life.

As for her career, she’s currently on your, she has book coming out, she’s gearing up to executive produce another film and she’ll be receiving a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Not only that, she plans on re-recording her self-titled debut album. The reason? She said she wants to show the business side of ownership and how important it is to “own.” With her first album contract, she’s allowed to re-record it and everything purchased from that moment on, she owns.

There may be some new direction on the album, but she confirmed she’s not taking Ja off any records. If anything, she said she’ll “add some sauce” to records for the re-record. While she said Ja pretty much supports her new endeavors, she hinted “the other guy” (*coughs* Irv Gotti *coughs*) likely isn’t happy about it.

Irv Gotti – who produced most of her early records – chimed in with his issue with her re-recording her album, saying she’s trying to "f over his masters he owns". It sounds like he’d rather flex owning something of hers than her wanting to own something of hers as well.

 

Also, the singer talked about praying with late rapper DMX, catching COVID-19 (she caught it from a family member) traveling the world, how she decides if she’ll clear a sample, and more. Ashanti was joined by her sister, Shia, where she talked about what it was like growing us as Ashanti’s little sister. She also reflected on a brutal domestic violence attack where her jaw was broken.

Bow Wow put on one hell of show before and during the Millennium Tour in Atlanta last night.

After popping off about his set time (which we will discuss), the rapper/actress brought out a special guest that has re-sparked romance rumors.

Last night, the Millennium Tour made a stop in Atlanta and Bow Wow decided to treat his fans with an appearance from his longtime crush, Angela Simmons, while he performed "Shortie Like Mine." Smart. He knows her popping up will spark dating rumors.

Watch him get down on one knee below:

"This might be my last show! ….. I’ve had enough," he tweeted.

Fans were in agreement, sharing videos of how the crowd majorly calmed down during Omarion’s set. They said his set is boring without B2K:

After dubbing himself the best artist on the Millennium Tour, Pretty Ricky’s Spectacular had something to say.

"Now Lil Bow Wow…simmer down nah," he said with a red flag emoji.

"N*gga u been my opening act ya whole career now where the lies n*gga! Chill out this ain’t about u magic mike," Bow responded.

OH.EM.GEE.

Then, things started to get messy:

 

Oops ! Spectacular from Pretty Ricky wants to know did Bow Wow ask to come on The Millennium Tour with Omarion or did Omarion come on tour with him?

The 2021 Millennium Tour kicked off at The Forum in Inglewood, CA where Omarion and Bow Wow performed their hits while bringing along a few friends to turn up even more. The lineup is full of nostalgic fan favorites from the 2000s including special guests Ashanti, LLoyd, Ying Yang Twins, Sammie, Pretty Ricky and Soulja Boy!

Last night, O shocked his fans and brought out his B2K brothers, Fizz and Raz B.

Now, O and Fizz have been at odds over the last few years after Fizz started dating O’s ex/kids’ mother, Apryl Jones. Fizz & Apryl’s relationship caused chaos amongst their "Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood" co-stars, B2K and fans due to Apryl’s past relationship with Fizz’s bandmate.

Just months after going public, Fizz and Apryl called is quits in 2020.

During their performance at the tour, Fizz publicly apologized to O for dating his ex and all of the drama it caused. Check it out below:

OH?! Diddy Caught Kissing Bow Wow & Future’s Kids’ Mother Joie Chavis On His Yacht In Italy

Well, what do we have here? It appears Diddy brought Joie Chavis – the mother of Bow Wow‘s daughter & Future‘s son – with him on his vacay in Italy. And paparazzi caught him smooching with the dancer. Oh?

See the racy flicks inside…

It appears Diddy has a new boo in his life. Again.

Over the last week, the Hip Hop mogul has been coasting the waters in Capri, Italy ahead of the Labor Day Weekend. Just a few days ago, he was mourning the death of his kids’ mother, Kim Porter.

Most recently, he was caught locking lips with Joie Chavis – choreographer and the mom of Bow Wow’s daughter, Shai, and mom of Future’s son, Hendrix – on his huge yacht in Capri, Italy. It is seemingly the same vacay from where he posted the above message about Kim.  And there are receipts.

Diddy was last romantically linked to City Girls rapper Yung Miami.

The Highlight Of Soulja Boy & Bow Wow’s Star-Studded VERZUZ Was Their Playful Ish Talking – ‘You Sell Durags, I Got Lemonade!’

Soulja Boy and Bow Wow‘s highly anticipated VERZUZ Battle became a trending topic on social media following over a month’s long online battle of the rappers firing shots at one another. Their playful banter plus their throwback hits were everything. More inside…

Over the last month, Soulja Boy & Bow Wow have been "bickering" online leading up to their VERZUZ Battle.

A lot of trash talk has been exchanged online before the battle – like that time they hopped on IG Live together and was "dissing" one another for their business ventures. Soulja clowned Bow for being a durag model while Bow was talking ish about Soulja’s lemonade.

"You sell durags, I got lemonade Bow Wow!," Soulja said.

"Is it good though?," Bow asked.

The early 2000s rap face-off included a slew of surprise guests. Bow invited Omarion for "Let Me Hold You," Jermaine Dupri, Da Brat, and Dem Franchize Boyz for the remix of “I Think They Like Me," and Three Six Mafia’s DJ Paul for the "Side 2 Side" remix. Meanwhile, Soulja invited Lil Romeo on stage for "2-Way" and later French Montana hit the stage for their unreleased “She Make It Clap” remix.

During the round where Bow brought out DJ Paul for "Side to Side," Soulja performed his verse off of Drake’s "We Made It."

"How you never did a song with Drake," Soulja joked.

It appears Drizzy would have cleared his schedule to make an appearance. He said he would have in the comments. Check it:

Champagne Papi also shared a throwback pic of himself with Bow Wow, Soulja and someone who appears to be Trey Songz:

HA!

There was a Beyonce "BEYHIVE" battle moment when Bow Wow played his Destiny’s Child feature on the “Jumpin’ Jumpin’” So So Def remix. Then, Soulja reminded "Shad” that he worked with The Queen too when he played the sample from Bey’s "Hold Up" before performing his hit, “Turn My Swag On.”

During the battle, both guys were very animated as they cracked jokes on each other in between performing their hits.

“The difference between me and you, Bow, is all those songs are old man!” Soulja said before playing "Make It Clap" AGAIN – this time with a feature from Nicki Minaj. Bow pretended to take a nap on stage.

However, it was all love between them. At the end, they praised each other for their talent.

"My brother, you deserve every inch of respect. I never planned on doing a Verzuz," Bow Wow said to Soulja. Soulja told Bow Wow that he inspired him to do music before announcing his Big Draco album is set to drop July 28th.

Romeo gave flowers to both of them too:

Tyrese, Ludacris, Bow Wow, Vanessa & Natalia Bryant Rev Up The Red Carpet For ‘F9’ World Premiere In Hollywood

Before the premiere of F9, several celebs made their way to the red carpet for the film’s world premiere in Hollywood, including Kobe’s widow Vanessa Bryant and his eldest daughter Natalia Bryant. More inside….

"Outside" has been slowly opening up with Los Angeles recently fully opening back up since the pandemic started 15+ months ago.

Several celebs stepped out to attend the world premiere of the 9th installment of Fast & Furious held at the TCL Chinese Theatre. Vanessa Bryant – widow of Kobe Bryant – and Natalia Bryant – Kobe & Vanessa’s eldest daughter – stepped out for a mother-daughter night out on the town.

Mama Vanessa stood out in a neon yellow Mimi Plange dress, while her daughter turned up the heat in a red power suit paied with a D&G boduce.

"F9 Premiere with my baby @nataliabryant," Vanessa wrote on Instagram.

Mrs. Bryant shared several flicks from her night out with her daughter, where they snapped it up with the film’s stars, including Tyrese and Vin Diesel:

Also on the carpet…

Rapper-Actor Ludacris posed it up in a tailored blue suit on the carpet for the premiere of the franchise’s possible conclusion (or the beginning of it).

The father-of-three (about to be four) dished to Fatherly.com about how the Fast and Furious family develops the characters more:

"It develops it more because we never knew Dom had a brother. All these different movies, and then you realize that there’s someone of the same blood as Dom. And so it ups the ante and ups the stakes, especially because we’re going against him. So, it adds a whole new element and an element of surprise as well."

Luda’s pregnant wife, Eudoxie Bridges, also hit the carpet, showing off her growing baby bump:

Joie Chavis Claims She Doesn’t Receive Child Support From Bow Wow & Future – ‘I Don’t Really Need To Ask For Certain Things Because I Can Do Things Myself’

Joie Chavis did a Q&A where she revealed she does NOT receive child support from her kids’ rapper fathers, Bow Wow & Future. Oh? But is this totally true, or a play on words?

More inside…

Joie Chavis hopped on her YouTube channel to dispel assumptions made about her.  And as you can guess, it’s going viral.

During the candid Q&A, she made sure to let everyone know she is NOT a gold digger and then revealed she doesn’t even receive child support from the fathers of her children, Bow Wow & Future. Joie shares a 9-year-old daughter, Shai Moss, with Bow Wow and a 2-year-old son, Hendrix Wilburn, with Future.

“I feel like a lot of people say that. I am not a gold digger,” she explained at the 2:20-minute mark. “I have worked since I was 15. I take care of my kids. I don’t get any child support. Repeat that. I don’t get any child support. I don’t really need to ask for certain things for my kids cause I can do everything myself. If their fathers want to do certain things for them, they do it on their own time. I don’t really ask for anything.

It’s unclear if her children’s’ fathers pay for child care in other ways than just straight cash child support sanctioned by the state – like purchasing the homes she and the kids live in, the cars, nannies, school, etc. Just because someone isn’t receiving court sanctioned child support doesn’t necessarily mean they’re not receiving any support at all. Regardless of if it’s sanctioned or "fathers do it on their own", child support is child support – financial support for the children THEY helped make. This has nothing to do with whether a mother can additionally provide and care for her own as well.

Even if a mother is a billionaire, it shouldn’t matter.  One parent should not be 100% financially absolved from taking care of their child.

We all need to be clear when speaking on topics such as this as to not create a subpar standard of expectations, and we need to be 100% honest about where the money comes from if a person decides to publicly speak about their money, businesses and "things" money pays for.

During the Q&A, she also made it clear that she’s NOT a “h*e” and that she would love to get married one day. If her husband wanted a child, she said she wouldn’t be opposed to having more children.

Also, Joie wants everyone to know that she’s not materialistic.

”I definitely have some money,” she said about her living situation right now. “I couldn’t afford to go into Chanel and buy what I want, but I can now.”

Joie said she and Bow Wow have a good co-parenting relationship and that she looks at him like a brother now. Oh.

CLUB DRAMA IN HOUSTON! Bow Wow Responds To Mayor About Superspreader Event + Trey Songz & Fabolous’ Party Gets Shutdown

Bow Wow, Trey Songz & Fabolous hosted events in Houston over the weekend and Mayor Sylvester Turner was NOT here for it. More inside…

As COVID-19 numbers continue to rise (with numbers higher than when the pandemic FIRST hit), people are still carrying on as if we’re not in the middle of a pandemic. Everyday we hear on television or the radio to wear a mask, social distance, avoid crowds, and wash our hands frequently.

Yet, celebs and even regular folks just refuse to abide by the guidelines to help lower the spread of the virus. Mary J Blige threw a party last weekend to celebrate her 50th birthday party: no masks. Rapper Blueface has been out in L.A. turning up at the strip clubs with his homies: no masks. It’s as if the guidelines don’t apply to them.

Over the weekend, Bow Wow performed at a party in Houston that was part of restaranteur and club promoter Larry Morrow’s Birthday Weekend. As a surprise to some, Shad Moss PACKED OUT the club Friday night. No one had masks on and it was too many people to gathered inside in the club to social distance. Check it:

It’s reported Meek Mill and J. Prince Jr. were also in the mix…maskless.

The party caught the attention of Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner and he responded to the superspreader event Bow Wow hosted. In fact, the “Growing Up Hip Hop: Atlanta” star had more events scheduled throughout the weekend, so the mayor called him out:

These events that are scheduled with @BowWowPromoTeam today in Houston are on our radar. Other bars/clubs that are operating as restaurants, beyond capacity and social distancing requirements, please expect visits. Today we report 1964 new cases and 17 more deaths. st

”These events that are scheduled with @BowWowPromoTeam today in Houston are on our radar. Other bars/clubs that are operating as restaurants, beyond capacity and social distancing requirements, please expect visits. Today we report 1964 new cases and 17 more deaths,” he tweeted.

Neither Houston nor any Texas city should be allowed to be a venue for concert promoters outside of this State because clubs/bars are allowed to reclassify as restaurants. Only legitimate restaurants should be open at this time. st

”Neither Houston nor any Texas city should be allowed to be a venue for concert promoters outside of this State because clubs/bars are allowed to reclassify as restaurants. Only legitimate restaurants should be open at this time,” he continued.

It may have been entrepreneur Larry Morrow’s “All Black Birthday Weekend” in Houston, but celebrating with a super spreader event – even in an "open" state – isn’t a right.  Especially when there are still rules to abide by.

The “CSI: Cyber” star took to social media to react to the Mayor blasting him for his superspreader events. He tried to play victim, of course. He couldn’t believe the Mayor was only blaming him when there were other celebs hosting events in Houston over the weekend.

”Someone tell the Mayor of Houston, TX I’m leaving right now. Geeeeez. He singling me out as if I was the only celeb here this weekend. This is ridiculous,” he wrote on IG Stories. He also responded via Twitter, tweeting:

”Safe to say the mayor of Houston hates my guts. I can’t believe I get the blame for a whole weekend. This is ridiculous.”

No, YOU’RE ridiculous Bow Wow. Your actions are SELFISH and RECKLESS. COVID-19 positive tests, hospitalizations and deaths are steadily rising and what do you do? You do the exact OPPOSITE of what’s being asked of everyone so we can get the hell out of this pandemic. If you’re rich enough to be flying around on private jets and riding around on yachts – both of which are shoved down the faces of your IG followers – you’re rich enough to STFD for a year and find other ways to make money than performing in person and asking people to pile into clubs to watch you as you stand more than 6 ft from the crowd the entire time – just so you can stack more coins.

Cases of #COVID19
Hospitalizations from #COVID19
Deaths from #COVID19
Protect yourself and others.

Stay home if you can. Wear a mask. ↔ Stay 6 ft from others. Avoid crowds. Wash your hands.

Do them all for the best protection.

Bow Wow wasn’t the only one, even though he was seemingly thirsty to respond and engage on social media about all of this for attention…

A Houston nightclub hosting an event featuring Trey Songz and Fabolous had to be shut down last night because it was filled beyond capacity

200 people outside were waiting to get in, some traveled as far as New Orleans https://t.co/FQayc56w1X

Trey Songz & Fabolous hosted "The Black Affair” at Club Spire, which got SHUT DOWN by police due to it being filled beyond capacity, according to the Houston Fire Marshal’s office.

Fire Chief Samuel Pena said the club was given the option to re-open within capacity guidelines, but management decided to close for the night. Over 200 people were waiting in line to get inside the club. SMH!

ABC13 reports:

"I’m still getting some disturbing pictures of people hanging out in clubs that have been recategorized as restaurants," Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner said on Saturday. "And let me tell you, they are not restaurants."

Turner said he will be calling on TABC to crack down on the reclassifications.

"When you look at these pictures, there’s no food on the table," Turner said. "That is crazy. I am calling on the state to review their policies."

He said loopholes like these are making it difficult for the city to achieve getting rid of COVID-19.

"TABC continues to conduct more than 1,000 inspections each week, which includes responding to reports of potential violations," TABC later said in a statement. "We are aware of the videos which surfaced this weekend and have already opened our own investigation."

Fans were dragging Trigga and Fab as well. People were clowning folks who would risk catching Coronavirus for Trey Songz, Fabolous & Bow Wow in the year of our Lord 2021:

Soulja Boy & Bow Wow – Intro (Ignorant Shit Mixtape) letras

[Verse 1: Soulja Boy]
Hit the pot with the fork
Scrape the cocaine just like an egg yolk
Slam dunk a brick just like I’m on a court
Feeling like John Gotti walking out the court
Broke my wrist when I jumped out the gym
Balling hard like I’m on ESPN
Pinky ring, hit me for the 10
Slide through the trap, Forgiato my rims
In the trap, let the story begin
’09, me and Guwop getting it in
Young rich nigga came up straight out the rip

2015, nigga we made it
Jump out the gym and I went to Las Vegas
2016, came from trapping on Baby
Made 3M overseas, we gonna go to Australia
Me and Bow Wow all about paper
Stack up the money taller than skyscraper
Smoke up gelato, then I hit the vape
Hop in the Lambo, we stunt on the haters

[Verse 2: Bow Wow]
Yeah, yeah

Now now a nigga gotta suit up
In the building like I own it
Lamborghini doing donuts
Niggas talking like they want it
Bad bitches, yeah, we on them
Hop out the Wraith, young nigga knocking your bitch
Look at the stones on my wrist
Stripper parties in the suite at the Ritz
Forbes calling because they know niggas rich
We don’t make music for broke niggas
Only for rich niggas out getting money
I stay to myself, I keep shit on the low
And they say that I’m broke, boy, y’all funny
Still ball, I’m a Minute Made fan now
Still getting "Like Mike" checks in the mail now
Blowing big blunts, kush smoke in the air now
Young niggas in here turnt, we don’t pipe down
[Verse 3: Soulja Boy]
Young niggas turnt, we don’t pipe down
Posted on the block with the Glocks out
Posted on the block in the drop with Bow Wow
Pinky ring, 10 chain cost a 100 thou
Young rich niggas, yeah, we all about paper
Rollie my wrist, bust down on a hater
The niggas mad, just look at they faces
Went and spent 50 thousand for a bracelet
Posted on the block, I’m gripping
Serena Williams how I play with the racks like it’s tennis
Shoot this Draco just like Dennis the Menace
Standing in Zone 1, I’m serving the pigeons
Hit the p-jet with a hundred and fifty chickens
Drunk and testing, thought they say it’s finger licking
Knock out the plug, I ain’t leaving no witness
Sipping on Actavis, feeling the promethazine in my kidneys

[Verse 4: Bow Wow]
Club jumping because we in it
Niggas mad because we winning
Money coming by the boatloads
Fuck saving, we gonna spend it
Costa Mesa with your bitch
We just spent about a grit
Left nothing on the racks
We just fucking up Saks
Designer this, designer that
Always ten, we on the map
Speaking of the town, still the king of that
Homie, I’m just stating facts
Party at Jamie Foxx’s house
Fucking hoes on the couch
Never catching feelings with these bitches
Fuck them one time then kick them out
Been stunting since a jit
Red bottoms for the kicks
Switch the Rolly for the Cartier
Niggas balling, Penny Hardaway
Got a Gotti never drove it
Drive the Rover like it’s stolen
Diamonds came from Elliot the jeweler
So you know my neck and wrist is frozen
I just got a check, nigga
So I’m gonna flex, nigga
Got a driveway full of foreigns
I don’t drive Corvettes, nigga
