Irv Gotti has admitted to sleeping with Ashanti, however, after separating from his wife Debbie Lorenzo. He said this in an interview on the Wendy Williams Show as he decided to open about his infidelity.
According to him, Ashanti had no fault in the separation of him and his wife. He says he was actually caught with another woman in a hotel room.
“So what Wendy does is, totally blindsides me and says, ‘You’re sleeping with Ashanti,’ which I never answered … I was in total shock. I leave the radio station and it went complete(ly) viral — ‘Irv Gotti said he’s sleeping with Ashanti,’ which I never did! But was she right? Yes. But I didn’t say it.
“When me and Deb separated, she caught me cheating — this is why I’m here. Ashanti is not a homewrecker, guys! Ashanti had nothing to do with me and Deb — Deb caught me when I was directing “I Cry” in Baltimore. Deb being the vicious person she is, she came down unannounced. She said, ‘I’m Mrs Lorenzo. Give me the room key.’ The door was latched, but she knows I’m in there. That’s what broke me and Deb up.”
