Hi, what are you looking for?


Ashanti set the record straight on her relationship with Murder Inc. CEO and founder Irv Gotti.

There’s no doubt about it, Ashanti, Ja Rule, and the music of Murder Inc. had a deep ingrain in pop culture in the early 2000s.

And then all of a sudden, Murder Inc. fell from grace. Ashanti shied away from the spotlight for years, distancing herself as much as possible from the Murder Inc. team.

Now, in an interview at the Angie Martinez real life Podcast, Ashanti finally opened up about her departure and why Murder Inc. CEO Irv Gotti might have felt the need to spread numerous lies about their alleged romance.

In case you need a refresher, the decades-long drama escalated again in August, when Irv Gotti appeared on the Drink Champs podcast with Ja Rule and had a lot to say about Ashanti, from using derogatory slurs to claiming they were in an intimate relationship. . twenty years ago.

That’s why Ashanti sat down with Angie to clear some things up, and she immediately set the record straight. “Let’s get this straight. We’re not going to say relationship. We were dealing with each other, but was Irv my boyfriend? Was I his girlfriend? Never…Irv had multiple girlfriends, so I’m a little confused by the etiquette and the description.”

Earlier in the interview, Ashanti claimed that Irv Gotti was outright lying about the nature of their relationship. “You know, you can think it’s something and the other person knows it’s not, and you manifest this thing into something big and it’s really not that. And then when that person finally realizes that it’s not that, she makes them a completely different person.”

Ashanti stood firm in her truth, rising above the vitriol that was thrown her way. “Irv has outright lied about a lot of things. And the crazy thing is that, when we were in a good space, a positive space: talking about pillows is a dangerous thing, and there are so many things that I know. I have no desire to expose certain things. I’m happy, I’m in a different space… I don’t play in the mud”.

According to Ashanti, Irv’s falsehood didn’t stop there. In a clip now making the rounds on the internet, she claimed on Drink Champs that Ashanti’s 2002 hit song “Happy” was created after the pair slept together. Ashanti remembered the beginning of the song very differently.

“I’m trying to figure out, like, what made him say that. Was I there? I’m confused. I don’t remember this at all. I wrote ‘Happy’ in a CW Post college parking lot. I was actually on my way to see The Nutcracker with my aunt and cousins ​​in my Mazda 626.

“It’s weird. It’s really weird when you know you’re lying and you keep lying. That’s where it gets a little bit scary and a little bit mental because it’s like, ‘Dawg, we can see [the lies].’”

Ashanti added that the nature of their relationship had a much darker controlling reality. “I definitely feel like manipulation played a big part in my and Irv’s situation. He said things like: ‘Nobody wants to record with you, nobody fucks with you like that’. On one hand, it made him feel like family-family-family, and on the other hand, he was like, ‘Nobody even likes you.’”

In an attempt to pinpoint when it all went wrong, Ashanti said: “Irv was salty! Irv wouldn’t let me go into the studio to record. Irv was telling everyone not to record with me. Why do I want to stay in that situation? How can I stay in that situation? Do you know what he told me? He said, ‘No, do you want to be with Nelly? Go sign Derrty Ent. We don’t want you. What am I supposed to do?”

Through it all, despite Irv dragging his name through the mud, Ashanti still tried to show him respect by saying, “He 100 percent helped me change my life.”

“I feel like Irv is just hurt and doesn’t know where to put his pain and doesn’t know how to channel it as a man. He is sad.”

“I really, in my heart, think Irv wishes me dead. One million percent.
