Ashanti Expertly Responds to Questions About Nelly, Irv Gotti and Dating on WWHL

“That’s Atlanta Housewives-type shade!” Eva Marcille gleefully interjects.

Ashanti gave Andy Cohen a run for his money on Sunday’s "Watch What Happens Live" after questions about the singer’s ex-boyfriends and dating life crept their way into the Bravo Clubhouse.

Reading off a question from his cue card, Cohen said to his guest that a fan wanted to know if Nelly ever paid her the money he allegedly owed her — rumored to be around $500,000 — after their breakup. The R&B stars famously dated for about 10 years before calling it quits in 2014.

Letting out a half-sigh, half-laugh, Ashanti replied, "He didn’t owe me any money!"

"Oh, he didn’t?" Andy pressed. "Nooo," she replied with an uncomfortable chuckle.

Andy paused for a second, then asked if their relationship was good now. "Um, you know what, I honestly haven’t seen him since we broke up, which is crazy," she replied. Again, Andy paused for just a second, then blurted out, "Well, let’s bring him out, everybody!"

"Just kidding," he confessed, as a wide-eyed Ashanti shouted, "Stop playing with me, Andy!"

"That’s Atlanta Housewives-type shade!" Eva Marcille gleefully interjected.

Another fan wondered how she felt about Irv Gotti talking about their alleged affair during a recent appearance on "The Wendy Williams Show." Despite years-long rumors, Irv assured Wendy and the audience that he and his wife were separated when he and Ashanti began sleeping together. The reason he and his wife separated, he said, was because she caught him cheating — but made sure to note it was not with Ashanti.

"I feel like I have a single out called ‘Pretty Little Thing’ featuring Afro B. It’s so hot," she said instantly. "I’m on two tours this year — one in the U.S., one in the U.K. Movie coming out this Saturday, and I’m very excited."

"That’s a good reaction! That was good!" Andy shouted. "You know what? More people need to — when I ask a shady question, plug your product!"

Someone else asked the singer if she’d be reuniting with her former flame for his Murder Inc. world tour, which he first discussed on "Growing Up Hip Hip." At the time, Gotti said he didn’t "f–k with Ashanti" anymore and that they hadn’t spoken in years.

"I have two tours coming up," Ashanti told the inquiring fan. "One of them overseas in the U.K. and another one back in the States, so it’s kind of gonna be a packed year so far."

A "WWHL" caller later asked the singer if she was currently dating. She giggled, then sighed, then said, "It’s complicated. It’s a situation. But you know, I’m not that lonely, though. I’ll say that. Make one phone call and get it poppin’!"
