Nelly Under Criminal Investigation For Sexual Assault
Rapper Nelly is under investigation for sexual assault. The incident in question allegedly took place last year, after his show at the Cliffs Pavilion in Essex.
The woman accusing Nelly of misconduct claims she asked him to take a photo following his 5 December performance. She says the rapper gripped her tightly with his arm and brought her and her friends to his dressing room.
Once in the dressing room, the accuser claims Nelly escorted her into a separate room and began to masturbate in front of her.
According to her account, Nelly also tried to take her top off and force her to perform oral sex. As she ran away, she claims he called her a “cunt”.
She said she however did not report the incident to the Police because she felt the authorities wouldn’t believe her.
In a statement by the Essex police, they said: ‘We are investigating after a woman reported to us that she was sexually assaulted at an address in Westcliff on December 5, 2017.
Nelly’s attorney Scott Rosenblum, reacting to the alleged sexual assault, in a statement to TMZ, said:
“These allegations arose after Ms. Green amended her suit for money to include a reference to these claims. The fact that the police are investigating these claims is not new information and Nelly welcomes a thorough investigation. Nelly is confident that once investigated, these claims will be determined to be disingenuous.
“Nelly was accompanied by his girlfriend during this tour and she was at his side throughout. It is important that police investigate every allegation of this nature,” he added.
This new case is coming just two months after another woman claimed Nelly raped her on his tour bus. A claim Nelly denied before the case was eventually dropped following the woman’s refusal to testify.
