Ashanti Giggles Over Having Date Night at MTV VMA’s Amid Nelly Romance

Access Hollywood spoke to Ashanti at the MTV VMA’s red carpet where she broke down her sparkly outfit for the evening. She also giggled and coyly said, “maybe” when asked if she’s having a date night at the award show. The rapper, 48, confirmed longtime speculation that he and his fellow music star, 42, have rekindled their romance, telling Philo TV’s “Boss Moves with Rasheeda” that neither of them expected more sparks to fly. “Yeah, we cool again,” Nelly said with a smile. “I think it surprised both of us though. It wasn’t anything that I don’t think was planned.” The “Country Grammar” artist and the singer originally called it quits in 2013 after a decade of on-and-off dating and he explained why having some time apart helped them reconnect better at this point in their lives.
