Has Nelly spent all his money on jerseys, grillz and band aids?
Nelly decided to set a few people straight on rumors surrounding his love life and finances. Allegations have been swirling that the St.Louis rapper hit up his on again-off again boo thang Ashanti for $500K when he was experiencing financial difficulties, but the two fell out when he never paid her back.
Nelly hit up Baltimore’s 92Q radio station this week to shut down the rumors:
“It could be my mama, if she owed me half a million dollars, she better recognize…” he joked on ‘The KO Show’.
“There’s things and rumors about every artist at some point… and if they’re not talking about you then you’re not worth talking about,” he added.
Lastly, when the host asked about his 10+ year relationship with Ashanti (that he still refuses to claim) he kept up the mystery. After the radio personality mentioned seeing photos the couple spending time around St. Louis recently, Nelly responded:
“We’re pretty cool.”
Well, isn’t that romantic? Ashanti come get your boo!
