Nelly has taken to social media, addressing claims that he raped a woman in Seattle. See his tweets below.
The 42-year-old rapper’s lawyer says Nelly was booked and released without being charged following his rape arrest in Auburn, Wash.
As previously reported, he was booked Saturday morning after being arrested at about 4:37 a.m. in his tour bus at a Walmart. He was arrested on suspicion of second-degree rape, indicating force was used or the victim was incapable of consent due to being physically helpless, mentally incapacitated or developmentally disabled. His attorney said in a statement,
Nelly is the victim of a completely fabricated allegation. Our initial investigation clearly establishes this allegation is devoid of credibility and is motivated by greed and vindictiveness. I am confident, once this scurrilous accusation is thoroughly investigated, there will be no charges. Nelly is prepared to address and pursue all legal avenues to redress any damage caused by this clearly false allegation.
