Nick passed along this tidbit from yesterday, via PerezHilton.com: Nelly and Ashanti finally made their coupledom public. Aww. Check out this cute photo of the happy couple. According to Perez's post:
In a new interview, while celebrating his 34th birthday party at Lavo in Vegas on Sunday, Nelly spoke about his gal pal
He says, "That's the thing between me and her, we just like having fun."
Unfortunately, Ashanti wasn't at his birthday party this weekend, as she's currently in Japan.
Nelly did admit though that the two of them have been "hanging out for a minute." Though they've been linked together, on and off, for over five years.
And as to how serious their relationship is, Nelly opens up about that as well.
He says, "I think it's always serious when you can hang with a person continuously … and [“still”] have fun."
Awww. So cute!
