Nelly has been arrested for allegedly raping a woman on his tour bus Saturday morning in Ridgefield, Washington. TMZ (@tmz) is reporting that the alleged rape occurred early Saturday morning around 3:45 am. The woman specifically mentioned that Nelly was the one that raped her. Nelly was arrested and booked on 2nd degree rape charges.
At 9:25 am this morning, Nelly’s lawyer contacted TMZ to say “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 legal avenues to redress any damage caused by this clearly false allegation.”
That was a lot of big words just to say “my client is innocent, and looking forward to his day in court to fight these ridiculous claims, and we’re suing this chick for lying on him.”
