VIDEO: Exes Ashanti and Nelly Fuel New Romance Rumour After Being Spotted Holding Hands at Davis-Garcia Fight in Vegas


Singers Ashanti and Nelly have triggered speculation of reigniting their romance after showing up together to watch the sold-out Gervonta Davis vs. Ryan Garcia boxing match at T-Mobile Arena last weekend. 

The two music stars who have history dating back to the 2000s, looked cozy while seated ringside next to each other. Later, Nelly, 48, and Ashanti, 42, were seen holding hands in video footage captured after the fight.

They were also spotted in the tunnel with their entourage and were pretty close to one another while being asked some questions on camera.

After answering the questions, the two appeared to head off in same direction and were also holding hands.

Ashanti and Nelly’s romance has long been something of a mystery, as well as a source of gossip for fans, as both have played coy in the press over the years whether they are actually together or just friends.

Ashanti told PEOPLE in 2005 that they “went out,” but said they were “not boyfriend and girlfriend” though three years later, she teased that an engagement was “definitely in the future.”

In 2014, Ashanti admitted that Nelly was her first real love in an interview with Sway in the Morning, and later told Hot 97 that there was “no beef” between the two.
