Nelly has been arrested for allegedly sexually assaulting a woman.
According to TMZ, a woman claims she was sexually assaulted by the rapper on his tour bus following his appearance on tour with Florida Georgia Line in Ridgefield, Washington.
Nelly was reportedly taken into police custody and charged with second degree rape earlier today (Oct. 7).
Nelly’s lawyer has since released a statement flat out denying the rapper’s involvement in the alleged attack. According to TMZ, Nelly’s lawyer said, “Nelly is the victim of a completely fabricated allegation. Our initial investigation, clearly establishes the allegation is devoid of credibility and is motivated by greed and vindictiveness. I am confident, once the scurrilous accusation is thoroughly investigated, there will be no charges. Nelly is prepared to pursue all all legal avenues to redress any damage caused by this clearly false allegation.”
