AceShowbiz - Are Ashanti and comedian Michael Blakson an item? Fans are convinced that there may be something happening between the two after they were spotted hanging out more than once in Los Angeles recently.
The R&B super star and the Instagram comedian were first seen together at the Pretty Little Things party, where the singer launched her new swimwear collection campaign, in West Hollywood on Sunday, June 30. The alleged couple was said to be trying to keep their relationship low-key at the bash which took place at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel. Also attending the event was Tiffany Haddish.
Besides that, Ashanti and Michael were photographed spending time together again on Tuesday morning. They were snapped stepping out of the Peppermint Night Club in West Hollywood. The pair were all smiles and looking so much like a couple.
During the outing, the "Foolish" singer donned Louis Vuitton from head to toe. Meanwhile, Michael opted for a floral patterned shirt and pants which he paired with red velvet shoes.
According to reports, the two came and left together in a 2019 Rolls Royce truck. Michael took the wheel while Ashanti was sitting in the passenger's seat.
Prior to this, Michael was engaged to a woman named Georgia Reign. Meanwhile, Ashanti had a long-term relationship with rapper Nelly. They ended their 10-year relationship with the singer, noting that it was due to some insecurity issues.
"I think sometimes when people have their own insecurities it allows them to act out of character. I've been betrayed," she said on "Meredith Viera Show". "Again, you just have to grow. You have to grow up and accept responsibilities for the things that you do. I'm not a big fan of people being cowards. I think it's really important to know yourself and understand what you want and get it. I'm in a different place right now."
