Jay-Z Hooks Grandma Up For Her B-Day+Ashanti Speaks On Nelly Denying Her

Jay-Z has always spoken about his close ties to his grandma.  And this week, he and the Mrs. laced her with some sweet birthday gifts.  Details, plus Ashanti's take on Nelly denying their relationship when you read on...

Shawn Carter knows how to dote on his granny.  He and his wife Beyonce threw his grandma Hattie (pictured above at the Yankees game) a lavish 85th birthday bash this week--that included a Rolls Royce, fab eats, and dancing.  According to the NY Post:

Jay-z is a good grandson. For the 85th birthday of his grandmother, Hattie, the Brooklyn-born hip-hop mogul and his wife, Beyoncé, picked her up in a Rolls-Royce and took her to the Liberty Warehouse in Red Hook, a space with stunning views of the Statue of Liberty. The guests were entertained by dancers from the Boys & Girls Club when they weren't dancing themselves or devouring the Southern cooking.
 

Sweet!

 

In other news, after we posted this interview of Nelly denying ever having a "relationship" with Ashanti, it spread on the net like wildfire.  Now, Ashanti herself feels the need to throw in her two cents.  She decided to co-sign everything Nelly said:

 

Sigh. Honestly kid, we don't believe you either.  You need more people.  But we just don't really care enough anymore--so all this protesting makes the situation even more lame.  Just sayin'.

Unfortunately, you are

Unfortunately, you are misinformed. Jay's mother owns property internationally. They both have spoken openly about that, where he says he mother loved Paris now owns property there. Just because she, like myself, would like to stay in a community I feel loved, doesn't mean that is our only home, it's just where we consider home to be most of the time.

Jay is a cold heartless

Jay is a cold heartless monster who doesn’t have any family loyalties how can Jay consider himself to be a caring, kind, considerate, sincere, grandson when Jay neglected the woman who brought him to this world, the woman who raised him, his own mother. I think Jay is a cold heartless inconsiderate human being, how can anyone sleep well at night and function like a normal human being when you know you own multiple homes, properties, yachts, multi million dollar businesses and yet you allow your own mother to live in a poor neighborhood. People that disagree with my comment can simply view the video where Beyonce is dancing around the street where Jays mother happens to live and ask yourself would you allow your mother to live in such filth when your name is constantly on Forbes magazine, would it hurt him if he bought his own mother a decent home located somewhere private.

Wow. just because u watched a

Wow. just because u watched a video of her neighborhood means thats her ONLY home? Geez, how narrowminded. And for your information, the neighborhood looked like a middle class neighborhood to me. Not poor as u stated. But because she lived their primarily doesnt mean she doesnt own multiple homes elsewhere. You dont know them personally, only what u read.

Maybe his mother doesnt want

Maybe his mother doesnt want to move. Hell, my grandmother is retired and has a great savings account but she refuses to spend money to move because she's comfortable. Maybe we should take note on individuals like his mother and realize that we can live comfortably and save.... just a thought

Filth? You act like his moms

Filth? You act like his moms is still in Marcy Projects! THAT would be a problem! She lives in an average looking middle class neighborhood, with nice regular homes, not shanties and huts! I agree with the commenter that said some people don't want/need the "high life". I betcha the INSIDE of where ever she lives is LAID THE HELL OUT! Obviously moms is ok with it, because her daughter-in-law and Jay are still allowed to come around her "filth" of a home. Have you EVER seen Jay's mother? I don't think she wants or needs the type of material things you are talking about, nor does she crave the spotlight, like Janice Combs or April (Trey Songz mom). Let that woman and her son live their life! Gosh!

last time I checked, west

last time I checked, west orange is not a poor neighborhood... actually far from it. Did you ever think that maybe his mother doesn't wanna live the high life?? Hmmm, some people are comfortable in a working class neighborhood..... looks at 50's grandparents, they didn't wanna move out of Queens.

Jay Z looks just like her!!

Jay Z looks just like her!! Cute! Now for this Ashanti dingbat - When women accept labels, they'll be treated as such. That's exactly why the wifey, sidekicks, etc. eventually get left for another woman who demands commitment and respect.

LMAO! Ashanti is a lame for that Was the situation handled better when she was mute about the situation OR did she make the situation better by speaking IDK but she's lame as hell for that answer Lies! Maybe theyre saying that since they recently hooked back up. BET shouldve asked if they were ever a couple at some point in time.
