Nelly is sternly denying the rape allegations against him, but his accuser is telling a different story. According to TMZ, the Seattle woman met Nelly at a Washington club where she and some friends got “tipsy” at his table.
The woman was allegedly invited to attend the after-party and was driven by Nelly’s friends to his tour bus. She and Nelly were reportedly in his room when she claims the Hot In Here rapper tried to have sex with her. He allegedly forced himself on her despite her saying “no.” He allegedly told her to “shut up” and proceeded to have sex with her without a condom. She claims Nelly offered her money afterwards before she was kicked out. One of Nelly’s colleagues allegedly told her “you gotta go” and threw $100 at her.
Scott Rosenblum, Nelly’s lawyer, told TMZ, “It does not surprise me that she wanted to have her story publicized. That is playbook 101 of a person with an agenda and clearly she has one. The agenda is money, fame and notoriety.”
Nelly’s team reportedly hired an investigator to dig into the incident. Rosenblum added, “we will be able to show by objective evidence and unbiased witnesses that she has zero credibility.”
Nelly took to Twitter, on Saturday, to directly address situation.
Despite initial reports, Nelly was not charged with second degree rape.
