Ashanti Had An Interesting Response To News About Nelly's Rape Allegations — Watch
Nelly is in the midst of a controversy.  He has been accused of raping a 21-year-old fan. He may also be bullying her?

Yeah, it’s pretty messy.

Well, his former lady love has managed to pump up the press for her upcoming single with her response to the whole unsavory matter. 

TMZ touched base with Ashanti while she was seated in the Los Angeles airport. Their video guy approached her, saying, “You saw the reports about Nelly, this crazy story right. He's saying it's not true. Is this the guy that you know? You were very close with him..I gotta ask."

Ashanti took a thoughtful pause before passing out some brilliant gems. She is the best.

"I have a new song coming out, it's call "Say Less" and I think that...ugh...it sounds dope I just mixed it in Atlanta. That's what I was doing actually in Miami, recording records."

The camera man then asked, "So "Say Less" is there some good behind that statement?" 

She then states that it’s just the name of the song. Hahah. Clever, clever.

"It's a message though," the cameraman insists. Ashanti assures him that her comments are "just a pitch" for her new record, which will feature TY Dolla $ign. 

We kind of love how she handled this. Anyone else? It is non-committal while still ensuring that she catches some headlines for her new project. Smart. 

Watch the clip below:

Ashanti and Nelly dated for about a decade, but neither has confirmed the exact date they broke up in 2010. She was asked about the split in 2015 by The Meredith Vieira Show, to which she simply said, "Sometimes when people have their own insecurities it allows them to act out of character. I've been betrayed."


You know who did want to chime in though? Wendy Williams. Kind of.

The TV diva seriously stirred the pot by seemingly placing the blame on the alleged victim during a recent show; “"If she did not put herself in that situation, this wouldn't have happened. Young lady, you've got to stay out of tour buses”. She has since apologized.
