Nelly has officially confirmed that is in a relationship with Ashanti again. 

During a recent interview, the rapper revealed that he and the “Rain On Me,” decided to give love another try and admitted that the move surprised the both of them. “Yeah, we cool again,” he said. “I think it surprised both of us though. It wasn’t anything that was like, I don’t think planned. We both was pretty much doing what we do.” 

Nelly continued, “Sometimes being separate allows you to understand one another more. You can be like, ‘Yo, let me see exactly, maybe, what they see.’ We all can be defensive, sometimes, in our own relationships.”

Nelly didn’t go into detail about what issues the two encountered in the past but they definitely seem happier this time around. 

Last year, fans speculated that the two of them may have started dating again after a clip of them performing their hit “Body On Me” surfaced on social media. Ashanti would quickly shut down those rumors at that time.
