Ashanti dismissed rumors that she and rapper Flo Rida are in a longterm relationship.

"Let the people know Ashanti is not with Flo Rida," she told The Breakfast Club. "Be clear! That's my brother. Me and Flo are super cool... We've been going to each other's birthday parties for like, ten years. So, I don't know why it's like, such a surprise."

She continued:

"You know what it is. I got a group of girls I like to vacay with in my family. Flo got his crew in his family. We've been going to each other's birthday parties for like 10 years. So, I don't know why it's such a surprise now... No, first of all it's [the vacations] are not always together. But, it's just he's a good vibe and our teams are good together. He just likes to have fun with family and celebrate. I promise you, it has never been anything remotely close to that [a romantic relationship]."

The R&B singer is catching heat online for dating the deadbeat rapper, real name Tramar Dillard, who fathered at least four children with as many women.

The 41-year-old "Foolish" singer doesn't acknowledge questions about Zohar or any of the "My House" rapper's children on social media.

Flo Rida refuses to see his 5-year-old disabled son, Zohar Dillard, who lives in New York City with his mom Alexis Adams.

Flo Rida saw Zohar once in 2017 when he showed up to provide a DNA sample for a court-order paternity test.

Zohar was kicked out of a private school in NYC for unpaid tuition of $80,000. Adams, who receives temporary child support from Flo Rida, is forced to pay tuition and medical expenses out of her own pocket.

Adams has been battling Dillard in family court for 5 years now.
