Nelly seems to have clapped back at Irv Gotti while recently performing with Ashanti.
During the Oakland, California stop on the “My 2000s Playlist Tour”, which Nelly and Ashanti are currently co-headling, the St. Louis native addressed Gotti’s comments that were made on the recent Drink Champs podcast about his relationship with the “Happy” singer.
In a viral video, Nelly can be heard telling Ashanti after they finished performing their 2008 hit “Body on Me”, “Ayo, I got floor seats to the next game, what’s happening?” in which Ashanti laughs as she walks off the stage.
This clap back comes after Gotti revealed how he found out about Ashanti dating Nelly. “You wanna hear how I found out? I was at home… listen to this s**t,” he said. “This is what God wanted me to out. I was at home. NBA package, I like watching sports. ‘Oh my God, what’s this commotion going on in the stadium? We just found out what the commotion is. Nelly just walked in with Ashanti.”
After clips of the interview went viral on social media, many fans were quick to point out that Irv Gotti was still married during the time he was pursuing a relationship with Ashanti.
One Twitter user wrote, “Damn Ashanti did Irv Gotti dirty stepping with Nelly.. Good thing he had his wife’s shoulder to cry on.”
Nelly and Ashanti dated for 11 years before breaking up in 2014.
