• Nelly celebrated Ashanti’s birthday with a heartfelt Instagram tribute.
• The couple confirmed their reunion in September and made a public appearance at the 2023 MTV VMAs.
Here is what happened:
Nelly and Ashanti have taken their rekindled romance to Instagram. On his 43rd birthday, Nelly shared a video montage on Instagram featuring throwback pictures and clips of himself and Ashanti set to their 2022 track “Birthday Girl.” In the caption, he praised Ashanti as a beautiful and hardworking person and wished her a happy birthday. Ashanti responded with gratitude and love.
The couple’s relationship had been on and off for nearly 10 years until their breakup a decade ago. However, in recent months, they have been spotted together multiple times, sparking rumors of a reconciliation. In May, they even performed together at one of Ashanti’s shows in Las Vegas. On September 11, Nelly confirmed on a talk show that he and Ashanti were back together and “cool again,” emphasizing the value of understanding each other after being apart.
A day after the confirmation, Ashanti made their rekindled romance pseudo red carpet official at the 2023 MTV Video Music Awards. Though she attended the event without Nelly, she carried a clutch bag with a photo of them from the same event 20 years ago. According to Ashanti, she thought it was a cute gesture to commemorate their past history at the VMAs.
