Nelly Talks Ashanti
Don't go buying that wedding present just yet...
The rap star claims that he only wants to get married one time and one time only, but will Ashanti be the one?
He told Rap-Up TV: "Our relationship is the same it's always been. We're really good friends, you know? I think that's the thing people don't understand. I say that because you know it's like society puts a pressure on you 'cause they want to see it turn into a certain relationship. You see what I'm saying?
"But if that relationship doesn't work, then society doesn't take the responsibility of when it doesn’t work (laughs). You know what I'm saying? It's kind of like, 'Oh, oh, okay, we'll move on to the next couple we want to see.' I think what people don't understand, is that I think you really have to be friends first. I think that's the thing."
He added: “It's not about how long it takes because there's no time limit on this. I'm not a person that wants to get married more than once. You see what I'm saying? If I'ma do it, I'ma do it and that's it. You're dying if you leave me.
"Right now we're friends, man; I'm married to my work, my new album ‘5.0.’ You see what I'm saying? I'm married to getting things in a certain situation right now and she's married to getting things in a certain situation right now. So again, man, we enjoy each other's company and love it."
