Irv Gotti Denies Rumors That Ashanti Broke Up His Marriage ‘Ashanti Is Not A Homewrecker Guys’
He made that clear when he appeared on The Wendy Williams Show Monday (Nov. 4). When questioned about his past with Ashanti, Irv Gotti said,
“When me and Deb separated, she caught me cheating.”
But he clarified that the other woman wasn’t Ashanti.
“Everyone knows I don’t f*** with Ashanti. We haven’t spoken in, I don’t know how long. With Ashanti, it’s a delicate situation. She is a big part of Murder, Inc. The fans want that, everybody wants that. It’s weird. Just how I have my version of what has happened with me and Ashanti, she has her version.”
“‘No, no. This is why I’m here. Ashanti is not a homewrecker guys. Ashanti had nothing to do with me and Deb…Deb caught me when I was directing ‘I Cry’ in Baltimore. Deb being the vicious person she is, she came down unannounced like ‘I’m Mrs. Lorenzo, give me the room key.’ The door was latched but she knows I’m in there. That’s what broke me and Deb up. I’m not saying [who I was in there with]. Just so you know the timeline, ‘I Cry’ music video… Ashanti’s not even in the picture.”
See it at the 28:48 mark.
The speculation of an affair with Ashanti resurfaced after Irv Gotti spoke on his past with Ashanti on WeTV’s “Growing Up Hip Hop: New York”, and said they don’t really speak anymore.
Deb also chimed in and said,
“We were still married, but we were separated when they were dating. I was used to it from the beginning, like im going and traveling, I just wasn’t used to the women. That was new like, ‘where did these h*es come from?’”
