Nelly is getting ready to release his new album in November, and says that’s where his heart belongs. He tells UsMagazine.com that he’s single right now because his focus is on that record. Nelly says, quote, “I’m dating something unbelievable. She is so sexy, she is a new girl. I’ve been dating her now for a couple of months… She’s called ’5.0′ and we get married on November 16th.” The name of his new record is in fact “Nelly 5.0.” All joking aside, Nelly says he’s single right now. The St. Louis rapper says, quote, “I’m not married or anything like that. It’s more about making sure ’5.0′ is where it needs to be.” Nelly’s current single, “Just A Dream,” is sitting at number seven on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart.
When asked if he and Ashanti are 100% split after being together a long time, Nelly asked who even said they were a couple in the first place? Nelly said:
“Who said that? Well what have we always said? Of course I’m single. I’m not married, she’s not married.”
“Here’s the thing. I’ve never said I’m in a relationship, she’s never said she’s in a relationship. I don’t know where they do that at. But we’ve always admitted to being friends.
He then gushed about how great of a girl she is:
“We hang out. She’s a very sweet girl. Very pretty girl. Very talented. She does her thing as far as her career and I do my thing as far as mine.”
