As previously reported, the pair was spotted hand-in-hand at T.I. and Tiny’s wedding in Miami, Florida sparking rumors that they were back together.
According to Cornell however, he’s only in a relationship with one thing; his music.
He tells ThatGrapeJuice,
“No it’s safe to say that we’re two friends that went to support our friends. We’re both friends of T.I and Tiny and we went down there to support them. Right now it’s safe to say that I’m a couple with my ‘5.0’ album (laughs); the person I’m dating right now is a girl by the name of ‘5.0’ and we’re planning to get married on November 16th so I’m inviting everybody to that wedding (laughs).”
He also went on to deny rumors that his new single “Just A Dream” was about the NY songstress.
“No it’s not about Ashanti. It’s just a song that I and my man Rico Love came up with. It’s a song that just relatable on all levels – rich, poor, black, white, child, adult – whatever level it is. If [thinking it’s about Ashanti] is what helps people to go out and support it then so be it (giggles).”
