Ashanti is firing back at all her haters. In a new interview with ‘The Hot 97 Morning Show,’ the singer is blasting rumors involving her personal and professional life with Nelly and Irv Gotti.

When asked about her ex-boyfriend, Nelly, Ashanti reveals that they are on hiatus. “Nelly and I are in the space where I’m kinda like focusing on my career,” the 33-year-old states. “He’s focusing on what he’s doing. There’s a lot things that happened this year. A lot of things went public more than other things have gone public, you know what I’m saying? And, um I kinda just have to do me. We’re in that space right now. We’ve definitely scarred each other in a sense to say.”

As to the claims by Irv Gotti that she was disloyal and didn’t stick by him, Ashanti says that there’s no beef with her former Murder Inc. label head. “There’s no beef, there’s definitely no beef,” she admits. “I feel like Irv kinda paints a picture of what happened with me and Murder Inc. very one-sided. I hear him talk about, ‘Oh, she’s disloyal,’ and, ‘Oh, she didn’t throw up the M’s,’ ‘Oh, she didn’t do this and that’ and I feel like it’s time to kinda set the record straight on what it really is… I’m a Libra, I’m a very loyal person. You know anybody with any sense of logic could see that I rode out. I rode to wheels fell off.”

The songstress is currently working on her long-delayed fifth studio album, ‘BraveHeart.’ The opus is set for a 2014 release.
