Ashanti’s love life has always been a bit of a dramatic one since her longtime relationship with Nelly has always been so on and off and neither would claim each other publicly.

Nelly admitted it was Ashanti who wanted to keep things quiet and he loathed it, but it appears Ashanti won’t be hiding her new NFL boo.

The Jasmine Brand writes:

Rumors are running rampant that Ashanti is dating 37-year-old NFL’er, Darnell Dockett. Darnell plays defensive end for the San Francisco 49ers. This week, the two exchanged some innocent Twitter flirting behavior, making folk speculate that the two are an item. Peep it below.

We first noticed the two flirting on Twitter last month.

  1. People are getting booed up for the summer. It’s usually the opposite. LOL. He’s cute.

    1. I think the whole summer whoring thing changes a bit as you age. People eventually want to settle down when they get in their 30s. Just booing up for the winter no longer suffices.

  2. Meanwhile Nelly has Floyd’s UNEMPLOYED leftovers and just got locked up for drugs, Karma is a b-tch.

  3. It’s really good to see Ashanti into somebody other than Nelly. I know it took her a long time to get over Nelly but rather that than jumping from loser to loser who wasn’t worthy of her. I hope this guy treats her right.
