Nelly has been arrested for allegedly raping a woman.
Law enforcement sources have confirmed that a woman claims she was raped on the rapper’s tour bus which was parked in a Walmart lot in Washington, where he’s been performing. Nelly is on a tour with Florida Georgia Line and they were set to perform Saturday night in Ridgefield, Washington. The alleged rape occurred Saturday morning at 3:48 AM and we’re told she specifically said Nelly is the one who raped her.
Nelly was booked on second degree rape charges Saturday morning at around 7 AM and released shortly after.
However, the rapper has denied all the claims. Nelly broke his silence on the rape claim against him, saying he’s completely innocent and is a victim of targeting but will not take the stage Saturday night.
The rapper says he’s beyond shocked at the “false allegation” and is confident he’ll be exonerated once the facts are in. He claims he’s been targeted by the accuser, but apologized to his loved ones for the embarrassment and for putting himself in a bad situation. He also vows to take legal action against the “defaming claim” and reaffirms he’s not been charged with a crime yet.
