ASHANTI'S LONGTIME STALKER ON TRIAL FOR A THIRD TIME This is Hurd's third trial on the same case.The first case resulted in a mistrial because a juror got sick during deliberations. You’ll recall, during a panel discussion on “The Meredith Vieira Show” back in April, the 34-year-old songstress (who was once linked to Washington Redskins baller De Sean Jackson) confirmed she had hopped back in the dating pool and went on an amazing first date with a guy, but she kept his name under wraps…until now.
Nutty pro se defendant Devar Hurd told jurors in his opening statement that Ashanti first reported him because she was jealous.
"She thinks I'm two-timing her and not being faithful," the 37-year-old jailbird said Tuesday.
Check out the tea from that sit-down, as well as her thoughts on issues with Irv Gotti, and be sure to watch the interview below. Nelly and I are kind of in the space where, I’m kinda like focusing on my career, he’s focusing on what he’s doing, you know there’s a lot of things that happened this year, you know a lot of things kinda went public more than other things have gone public before, you know what I’m saying? We’re in that space right now and there are things that were said and things that were done, that probably shouldn’t have been said or done, but they have been. [laughs] No, I mean, like I said, you know, when people are around each other for a long time, you know, there are feelings, there are things there, and people get hurt. But um, at that time, at that very moment when I was physically writing that record, I was in the studio in LA, and me and him were in this space of we were getting back together. You know you go through that space where you don’t talk. And we were actually Skyping while I was recording the record.
Men handle hurt differently than women handle hurt, you know what I’m saying? Not physically, we don’t want to put that out there [laughs]. You know what’s weird, you know me and Nelly, you know, sometimes we were cool, sometimes we weren’t. You getting on my nerves right now…you go over there, I’m over here…It does. So the record was about [laughs] when we were going through the bad times, but we were cool when I was recording it so it is weird, you know? I remember when I played it for him in the studio he was like, “Ma this is crazy! There’s definitely no beef but, for me, again, just me talking about my movement and being brave and kind of just revealing a little bit more of myself at this point in my career, I feel like Irv kind of paints a picture of what happened with me and Murder Inc. I hear him a lot talk about, “She’s disloyal,” and “Oh, she didn’t throw up the Ms and she didn’t do this and that.” And I feel it’s time to kind of set the record straight on what it really is…I’m a Libra, I’m a very loyal person. I went to the trial, I was there, I was filming in Vancouver and in my contract, I wasn’t ever supposed to leave Canada.

2004 - 2009Ashanti and Nelly were linked between 20, but the nature of their relationship is still a little unclear.
We were going through whatever we were going through, but when I started recording it, we were okay. Like, we weren’t even speaking at all…regardless, I’m going to always have love for Irv.
Longtime Ashanti superfan and stalker once again argued Tuesday that he and the singer were once an item.
He has refused to plead guilty to the charge even though he had been offered time served in exchange.
