One would imagine that there’s still some sort of unspoken beef between Ashanti and 50 Cent after he called her out on several diss tracks during the early 2000s. If you recall, 50′s G-Unit camp got into an ugly feud with Murder Inc. and no one was safe—not even the Inc.’s “princess,” Ashanti. Though he frequently attacked her during his verbal tirades back in the day, Ashanti says that all is well between she and 50 thanks to her ex-boo, Nelly.

“I would see 50 every now and again and I never had a problem,” Ashanti recently told DJ Whoo Kidd. “He didn’t seem like he had a problem.”

According to the “Never Should’ve” singer, Nelly requested that 50 apologize to “his girl” one year at the VMAs.

“The first time we [me and 50] kind of ‘spoke’ so to speak, we were at the VMA’s in Vegas and Nelly was like ‘Yo, you need to apologize to my girl.’”

Apparently the exchange occurred in front a big group of people and to be honest, we’re pretty shocked that 50 didn’t just add Nelly to his hit list. But instead, he simply apologized to her.

“We were in front of everybody and you know, 50 has a personality, he was like ‘Ashanti I’m sorry! I’m sorry, Ashanti!’ And everybody was dying laughing.”

“Obviously, everybody knew about the beef, G-Unit, Murder Inc. It wasn’t anything personal. It was explained to me that sometimes you’re guilty by association. It’s part of what happens.”

And that’s how Nelly defended Ashanti’s honor against the big, bad Curtis Jackson.

    Well its good that Nelly defended her. 50 didnt have to come for her like that. I love Nelly and Ashanti together, but I probably wouldnt talk about him anymore even if I was asked. But its up to her..

  • Quiet Storm

    Ashanta knows she blew it with Nelly so she is trying all kind of tricks to get him to soften up to her again,,,, ashanti in this case compliments will get you NOWHERE!…. just sayin

    @Junie. Honey, folks don’t care about the truth when they are dying to drag somebody through the mud. And Madame Noire knows that!

  • Junie

    This is so sad. She spent 98% of the Interview talking about her Work, Career (past & Present), Album, Lifetime Movie and big screen role in Resident Evil. She NEVER MENTIONED NELLY until the Interviewer asked her about the Old 50¢ beef that involved Nelly. HE asked her about that knowing what happened. SHE WAS NOT THE ONE WHO BROUGHT IT UP. These Articles are always Instigating things.

    SO NO ASHANTI is not Trying to Keep Nelly’s name in her mouth like the Title suggested.

        We heard you already lol….Ashanti declined all questions about Nelly when they were dating all them years. So She can decline to talk about him now if she wanted to. But the woman can’t stop saying his name now lol. She wants him to be the topic. She knows saying his name is gonna by the highlight of the interview. He has a new lady now, she needs to let it go. Put it into music or something, but just needs to stop saying his name in every interview

    • Junie

      Ashanti never brought Nelly up. The interviewer was the one who asked her about the situation with 50¢ that involved Nelly. He knew what He was doing when He asked her about that. She spent 99% of the Interview talking about her Work, Career (Past & Present), Album, Lifetime Movie and big screen Role in ‘Resident Evil’. These MadameNoire Articles & Titles always try to instigate things.

    So…you ain’t talk about Nelly for ten years but now that you need to promote your album, he’s your favorite topic? Girl don’t take this mess into the new year. Your music career can NOT be revived at this point. Keep it moving!

    • okokokokokookko

      I find it so strange how her career lost it’s flame so fast. Ashanti was huge back then, but now it’s like Ashanti who? Thankfully she’s a songwriter because if she didn’t have that she would be broke.

    She seems desperate to keep bringing him up. You two have broken up. He has moved on(doesn’t mention you) and Ashanti should move on as well.

  • MISSS

    WHO CARES, NOBODY HERE IS RELEVANT

    • Taneesha Culture Clash Thomas

      lol right

    • Jessica

      I never understood why people leave comments like this because clearly they are relevant enough for you to click and read this post as well as leave a comment. Ashanti may not be as popular in mainstream but she is still putting out good music better than the stuff on the radio.
