Will hip hop'in rapper Nelly and R&B's Ashanti just give it up and admit they're an item?
Ashanti recently scoffed at talk of romance between her and the rapper - it's "just people making up their own sitcom," the R&B chanteuse told Vibe.
But it's the two of them who keep generating new episodes.
Lately, Ashanti has been shooting "Coach Carter," her feature-film debut. You'd think that Nelly also had a part in it, judging by the amount of time he's spent on the set.
"Nelly would bring her organic vegetarian meals all the time because she didn't like the commissary food," a spy tells us.
Her co-star Samuel L. Jackson confirmed in an interview, "Let's just say I ate more craft service because Nelly wasn't bringing food to me every day."
Sources on the set also say the pair talked endlessly by phone when Nelly was taping Tim McGraw's recent TV special and when he was working with Christina Aguilera on the video for "Tilt Ya Head Back."
So why all the sneakin' around?
Some say it's because Ashanti has also been juggling Irv Gotti, who signed her to his label, The Inc. (formerly Murder Inc.).
"Irv knows about Nelly," says one source. "But Ashanti doesn't want to hurt Irv's feelings."
For now, her rep insists, "She's friends with Nelly. She has a professional working relationship with Irv Gotti. That's it."
