R&B singer Ashanti appears to be lashing out against her former lover and label head Irv Gotti, Media Take Out has learned.
Last night Ashanti’s remix of Diddy’s ‘Gotta Move On’ began circulating online sparking rumors that Ashanti was talking about Irv with the lyric, “It’s giving obsessed, it’s giving you stressed, it’s giving you pressed, it’s giving you missing the best…”
She also claims that Irv has a “Little weenie.”
Ashanti was recently the subject of wide publicity after her ex-boss and Murder Inc. co-owner, Irv Gotti, made several allegations that he and the singer had been involved in an intimate relationship. Irv became bitter as he also discussed the time he found out that Ashanti was in a relationship with Nelly, as he insinuated that she had betrayed him.
Irv Gotti is also angry at Ashanti, who has sought to recover her masters from him and her efforts to re-record her albums that she made under Murder Inc. Gotti appeared on Drink Champs, where he screamed about Ashanti taking away the monies he makes from her songs.
Throughout her career, Ashanti has sold nearly 15 million records worldwide.
Aside from music, Ashanti has also acted in various productions. In 2005, she made her feature film debut in Coach Carter alongside Samuel L. Jackson, as well as starring as Dorothy Gale in the made-for-television film The Muppets’ Wizard of Oz, which attracted nearly 8 million viewers when it premiered. She has since appeared in the films John Tucker Must Die (2006) and Resident Evil: Extinction (2007).
