Irv Gotti Says Ashanti ‘Ran Like A Cockroach’ When He Was Arrested
Irv Gotti says that Ashanti ‘ran like a cockroach’ when the FBI arrested him in 2005 and claims she hasn’t had a hit since in a new interview following his recent “Drink Champs” appearance.
Page six reached out to the record executive to ask about recent social media chatter alleging he was obsessed with the former Murda Inc. to find out if it was true. “F - - k no,” he told the outlet.
“When the feds hit, she ran like the cockroaches when you turn the lights on,” Gotti told the outlet of the singer.
In 2005, Gotti and his brother Chris were charged and cleared by the court for money laundering charges. The label owners were accused of hiding garbage bags and shoeboxes stuffed with drug money and laundering it for a notorious Queens crack and heroin kingpin, Kenneth “Supreme” McGriff.
Gotti insinuates that when he turned himself in after feds raided his Murda Inc. office, Ashanti abandoned him.
Irv Gotti Says Ashanti Stopped Making Hits When She Left Murda Inc.
On ‘Drink Champs’ recently, Irv took credit for helping Ashanti pen her biggest hits, including “Happy.”
As TSR previously reported, Gotti said the inspiration behind the track came after they were intimate. But, things come to an end, according to him.
The 52-year-old added in his conversation with Page Six that he “made” Ashanti and that her career halted the minute he stopped making her records.
“She was ready to get the f - - k off of the Murder Inc. label, and she was ready to abandon me, the person who made her. And yes, I can say I made her. How do you know I can say that firmly? The minute I stop making her records . . . She has not made a hit since.”
