Whew! 2023 seemed to be the year of rekindled romances, and no one proved that better than some of the entertainment industry’s biggest and trendy stars.
From Ashanti and Nelly to Summer Walker and Lil Meech, here’s a look at a few couples who spun the block and found happiness with their ex-bae this year.
Rekindled Romances: Ashanti & Nelly
The ‘Body On Me’ artists had fans peeping their movements in early 2023. In April, Ashanti and Nelly had social media in a chokehold after popping out to a Gervonta Davis match hand-in-hand. This came months after a spicy performance between the pair in December 2022. Prior to that, the innanet streets circulated a video of Nelly enthusiastically greeting Ashanti at Fat Joe and Ja Rule’s Verzuz battle in 2021.
In September of this year, Nelly finally confirmed their rekindled romance during an interview with Rasheeda Frost. The pair celebrated each other’s birthdays with lavish gifts in October and November.
Most recently, folks on social media have speculated Ashanti and Nelly are expecting a child. However, neither has confirmed or denied the reports.
Summer Walker & Lil Meech
Whew! Lil Meech became the face of a new meme in 2023 when he claimed to be helping a “cousin” with “groceries.” Video of Meech entering a woman’s apartment in July surfaced amid rumors of a breakup with Summer Walker. Timestamps showed he spent 17 minutes inside the woman’s Houston spot.
Shortly after, the singer took to social media, seemingly blasting her ex for his behavior.
“It’s just crazy how a n***a will really try to pursue the f**k out of you for 2 years, make you meet they whole family, wanna be around you and your kids all day & pay bills just to embarrass you to the world lmao. I don’t understand men but ima give it to God,” Summer wrote, adding a laughing emoticon.
However, three months later, in October, the pair was spotted looking cozy at the pumpkin patch. Days later, Summer shared photos of her and her bae, planting a kiss on her cheek!
Most recently, she shut down pregnancy rumors.
