Irv Gotti landed in a deep well of controversy after making mentions of his past relationship with Ashanti, but it appears that a change is afoot. The Murder Inc. honcho says that he’s through bringing up the R&B singer while stating that the situation brought more harm than good.

Irv Gotti was stopped on the red carpet by a reporter from The Shade Room who immediately jumped in asking about the Ashanti situation. Gotti, clearly attempting to move past the issue, stated that he didn’t bring up the singer before launching into making his stance.

“[Because] that’s why, you askin’ me,” Gotti said. “Did I bring Ashanti up? You did it. Here’s what I’m going to say — I wish Ashanti nothing but the best. I’m not hooked on her, like, ‘I can’t get over her.’ It’s none of that sh*t.”

Gotti went on to say that the only reason he mentioned Ashanti at all was to tell the full story of the history of Murder Inc. and feels like he was chastised for telling his version of the truth.
