Unclear what 12 months this was, however IG says he was watching an NBA recreation when he noticed the 2 artists stroll out and carry out collectively — which left him shocked on the time, as he himself was apparently romantically linked to her too across the identical time. Appears like he nonetheless has some bitter grapes over it … and about his sophisticated relationship with Ashanti usually.

Now, they had been already on the invoice, which was established properly earlier than the brand new “Drink Champs” episode — however folks nonetheless misplaced it on social media after they noticed that Nelly really introduced out Ashanti throughout his set … this after hers had concluded a couple of hours earlier.
Some are speculating this may’ve been a petty play at Irv’s expense … which can be true, particularly while you hear Nelly’s remaining joke about “ground seats” on the subsequent NBA recreation.
