Nelly Maintains Innocence Over Rape Accusation… Wait What?

The 42-year-old rapper – whose real name is Cornell Iral Haynes Jr – was “beyond shocked” to be arrested on Saturday (07.10.17) morning after a woman claimed he had sexually assaulted her on his tour bus after a gig at the White River Amphitheater in Auburn, Washington, on Friday (06.10.17) and after being released without charge, he has apologised to his family and friends for the “embarrassment” of the “false and defaming” allegations.

He tweeted:

And the ‘Hot in Herre’ hitmaker suggested he will be taking legal action against his accuser.

He added:

Nelly was booked on second-degree rape charges after a woman reported the alleged incident at 3.48am on Saturday, but the ‘Dilemma’ hitmaker’s lawyer insists her claims are “completely fabricated”.

The lawyer said in a statement: “Nelly is the victim of a completely fabricated allegation.

“Our initial investigation clearly establishes this allegation is devoid of credibility and is motivated by greed and vindictiveness.

“I am confident, once this scurrilous accusation is thoroughly investigated, there will be no charges. Nelly is prepared to address and pursue all legal avenues to redress any damage caused by this clearly false allegation.”

Nelly was released without charge but pulled out of his gig with Florida Georgia Line on Saturday evening in Washington.
