Celebrity Mistresses: The Good, The Bad, and The Trifling
Oh, the drama. No, Ashanti wasn’t the other woman to Nelly, but to the man that used to be her mentor and CEO of Murder Inc. Records–Irv Gotti. Back in ’07, Irv went to Wendy Williams’ radio show to spill the beans about the affair he had with the singer, saying she knew he was married and that he was popping ecstasy and Viagra during their times together. He claims he was disappointed at the fact that when he was facing legal troubles for money laundering, that’s when she decided to distance herself from him. Putting her on blast was pretty jacked up, but Ashanti never denied it, and if anyone (other than me) watched Irv’s short-lived VH1 reality show, Gotti’s Way, we know he wasn’t very shy when it came to exposing his affairs. She and Nelly are no longer together, and nothing came out of her alleged affair with Irv, and honestly, that’s a great thing.
