Irv Gotti spoke with MTV.com about his relationship with Ashanti. The Murder Inc. CEO says he is dropping her from his label due to creative differences.

“The relationship has run its course,” Gotti explained earlier this week while visiting the MTV offices. “The chemistry of what’s needed — we’re in two totally different places. You’re talking to somebody that took her and shaped and molded her and put her out there for the world, and it blew up. We [hold the record] for the [fastest] selling debut by a female R&B artist — 503 [thousand]. We did it! My views and philosophies and her views and philosophies are not meeting up.”

Ashanti is doing great though. As previously posted, she landed a gig as Dorothy on “The Wiz”.
