Nelly has been arrested for allegedly sexually assaulting a woman on his tour bus early Saturday morning in Washington State.
According to TMZ, sources claim the attack occurred early Saturday morning at around 3:45 AM. The alleged victim also told the police it was the “Hot In Herre” rapper who raped her.
Hours later, Nelly was booked on second degree rape charges around 7 AM and is currently still in custody. He is scheduled to perform Saturday tonight in Ridgefield, Washington with country-pop duo, Florida Georgia Line.
On Saturday morning, TMZ released a statement from Nelly’s lawyer that reads:
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.
This is a developing story and we will provide updates as they become available.
