After keeping quiet on his relationship with singer Ashanti for several years, rapper Nelly is finally talking. Nelly told People Magazine that the two have been together and that, “I think it’s always serious, when you can hang with a person continuously … and have fun.” Nelly has been linked to Ashanti since 2003, but neither one has come out to the press or public and announced that they were together. They have been seen at award shows and events together but never talked about their relationship. Early this year, Ashanti only called Nelly “a good friend.” It’s quite refreshing to see two celebrities keep their relationship low key. They should get the privacy that they want.
On the other side of the music spectrum, country singer Alan Jackson was honored by his fellow country singers during a taping of Country Music Television’s (CMT) Giants. Artist Brad Paisley, Martina McBride, Dierks Bentley, Taylor Swift and George Strait all honored the country legend at the Ryman’s Auditorium in Nashville. Jackson, along with the other country artists, sang several of Jackson’s popular songs and paid him tribute. The show will air on CMT in December, so if you are an Alan Jackson fan, be on the lookout for it.
It appears that Salma Hayek may be giving love a second chance with her ex-fiancée, Francois-Henri Pinault. The two were seen getting pretty cozy with each other at a soccer game in Rennes, France. Another attendee at the soccer game stated, “They were very together.” The couple has a one-year-old daughter together and was engaged to be married before calling it off back in July of this year. It looks like the couple is trying their hand at reconciliation as they have also been spotted in L.A. and Paris together. Heck, I would give my relationship with a billionaire a second chance and probably a third or fourth also!
