Nelly and Ashanti started dating in 2003 and were together for 11 years before breaking up in 2014. However, dating rumors have been recently reignited for the two as fans noticed their matching chains.

In a side-by-side image posted on social media, the ex-lovers can be seen wearing what appears to be matching iced-out Cuban link chains. The chain bears a striking resemblance to the one worn by the “Country Grammar” rapper at recent events, including the 65th Grammy Awards in February.

On Twitter, a supporter implied they were sure the two were back together by writing, “Okay I’ve seen enough he is laying it down on her. Or they dating.” Another user chimed in, enthusiastic about a possible reconciliation, “I’m so here for this!!!”

Others, however, were shocked and wondered what the former couple’s actual plans were. “Y’all acting like that’s not the most common chain ever,” one user tweeted. “Money running low so they are looking for clout!!”


The former couple performed in Glendale, Arizona as part of Power 98.3 and Power 96.1’s “Under The Mistletoe” concert series in December. Video of Ashanti and Nelly performing their 2008 song “Body On Me” later came to light, and it quickly went viral as fans flooded social media to demand the reunion of the Hip Hop and R&B stars.
