On Saturday morning, rapper Nelly was arrested for second-degree rape and released later that day without charges. A 21-year-old woman alleged that the assault occurred early Saturday morning in Auburn, Washington, on Nelly’s tour bus.
The accuser spoke to TMZ on Sunday and provided more details about the alleged incident. The woman says that she and her friends met the rapper at a club, where they drank at his table. Nelly then invited her to an afterparty, and she joined him on the tour bus. She says that the rapper tried to have sex with her in his room without protection, and she said “no.” She claims that Nelly told her to “shut up” and had sex with her “over her objections,” according to TMZ..
Afterward, she alleges that Nelly wanted to give her money, which she declined. Back on the bus, another woman told her to leave and threw a $100 bill at her.
Nelly’s attorney Scott Rosenblum denied the entire account and attempted to discredit the accuser, telling 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, who was supposed to perform with Florida Georgia Line on Saturday night, missed the show due to his arrest. He took to Twitter to proclaim his innocence.
We have reached out to Rosenblum for further comment, and will update this post if we hear back.
