In May, the couple appeared at the 3rd Annual Birthday Ball for Quality Control Executive Pierre “P” Thomas at the Fox Theater in Atlanta, and in June, Ashanti brought Nelly out on stage during her Las Vegas show at the Palms Casino Resort, where the duo performed “Body on Me”.
A month before, the couple was seen at the Gervonta Davis vs. Ryan Garcia boxing match at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. After the fight, the video caught them holding hands.

Last month, Nelly finally confirmed speculation that the two had reconciled during a guest appearance on The The boss moves in with Rasheed show streaming on Philo.
“I think it surprised both of us,” the “Hot in Herre” singer said at the time.
“We were both pretty much doing what we were doing,” he continued. “But sometimes when we’re apart, you understand each other better. You might say, ‘Well, let me see exactly what they see.’ We can all be defensive in our relationships at times. We know we’re wrong, but we’re going to stick with it, you know what I mean? But we’re all victims of it.”
Later that same day, Ashanti attended the 2023 MTV VMAs, where she wore a personalized clutch with a printed photo of Nelly.
“We’re in a great space,” the Grammy winner told PEOPLE on the carpet at the annual music awards. “Everything is positive. [We’re] have a lot of fun.”
