Irv Gotti’s rehashing of his rumored previous relationship with Ashanti has gotten the music producer in hot water in recent weeks. This time, however, Gotti is recollecting about the first he kissed the R&B singer.

“I’m separated from [my wife] Deb. I’m on my own. And Ashanti’s coming to the studio every day and our friendship and bond is naturally growing,” Irv said on episode three of BET’s The Murder Inc. Story docuseries. “She used to wear these Juicy sweats and her a– was looking fat,” he continued. “Her a– was looking great. So, one day I was like, ‘Yo, I’ll take you home.’ She said, ‘Bet, cool.’ We are walking to her front door of her crib. She turns and says goodbye and I just kiss her and grab her a– and just mwah. It was like, ‘What took you so long?'”

The internet decided to call out Irv’s constant retelling of how he supposedly bagged Ashanti two decades ago which has made fans extremely uncomfortable. One fan coined the term “Irv the Perv” in reaction to his recent comments.

Irv has been making headlines since his interview with Drink Champs earlier this month when he spoke about his alleged sexual encounters with Ashanti over 20 years ago.

Last month, a TMZ reporter stopped the “Foolish” singer on the street and asked if she would be involved in the then-upcoming BET documentary on Murder Inc. The singer quickly replied “no” along with her mother who broke into laughter.

Ashanti has not publicly addressed the comments but take a look below at how social media is sounding off on Irv:
