Judge Mathis says Ashanti should hit Irv Gotti with a cease & desist for spilling intimate details about their relationship.

Ashanti and rapper Nelly started dating in 2003 and broke up in 2014. Irv, who dated Ashanti in the early 2000s, found out that she was cheating on him with Nelly while they were still together.

Irv said he was heartbroken because he was "in love" with the beautiful R&B singer.

At the time, Irv was still married to his then-wife.

Irv shared intimate details about his extramarital affair with Ashanti during a recent "Drink Champs" episode.

He even said he was inspired to write Ashanti's 2002 single "Happy" after they finished sleeping together.

Judge Mathis is among those who believe Irv was out of line. Mathis bumped into TMZ while out & about in NYC Monday. He told TMZ's cameraman he'd advise Ashanti to send Irv a cease & desist or even go to court for a gag order to shut him up.

Mathis said even if Irv's claims are valid, he should stop putting Ashanti's business in the streets. On the other hand, if Ashanti feels she's being slandered, she should do something to stop it legally.

If anyone knows about using the courts to shut Irv up, it's Judge Mathis.

Ashanti hasn't reacted publicly to the drama yet. But she did join her old flame Nelly onstage on Friday, Aug. 5, for a playful rendition of their 2008 song "Body On Me."

"I've been ashamed my whole life," he said. "I said to the Lord if I'm going to be who I truly desire to be, I'm gonna need You to free me, because my mind is cluttered with shame and pain and fear and guilt and I can't get free."

NeNe Leakes responded to a lawsuit filed by her boyfriend's long-suffering wife in a North Carolina courthouse.

Malomine Temeh-Sioh filed court documents, obtained by TMZ, alleging that NeNe hooked up with her husband, Nyoinisela Sioh.

NeNe seemingly laughed off the lawsuit in a livestream video on Thursday. She joked about being a "husband stealer," and then insisted she, "didn't want anybody else's problems."

"I'm already out here a husband stealer, and this is too much. Ain't nobody out here stealing husbands," NeNe says in the video.

Prince Williams/Wireimage

NeNe may think it's a laughing matter, but alienation of affection is considered a "tort" - a wrongful act that could lead to monetary damages.

Luckily, Malomine is only seeking $100,000 in damages from NeNe. Probably because she knows the former Real Housewives of Atlanta star doesn't have much revenue coming in.

According to TMZ, North Carolina is one of only 7 states that recognizes a wife's right to sue a third party for depriving her of her husband's affection.


NeNe and Sioh apparently hooked up while NeNe's late husband, Greg Leakes, was on his deathbed. NeNe claims her ailing husband gave her his blessing to step out with another man.

If you're wondering whether North Carolina can haul a Georgia resident into court, the answer if yes. The plaintiff must prove that NeNe either owns a residence in NC or does business in the state.

NeNe owns an online boutique. If the court finds that NeNe shipped merchandise to customers in NC, jurisdiction over her will be established and North Carolina can haul her into court.
