Nelly’s Girlfriend Shows Support Amidst Rape Allegation
Nelly’s girlfriend, Shantel Jackson, appears to be supporting her man amidst a jaw dropping controversy that he’s currently facing.
Today, Shantel, who was previously engaged to Floyd Mayweather Jr., posted a cute photo of the pair, which some suggest is an act of her showing support of Nelly.
Over the weekend, the 42-year-old rapper was arrested for second degree rape and released a short time later.
The woman, who is 21 years old, claimed she was raped on the rapper’s tour bus in a Walmart parking lot in Washington.
She is said to have met Nelly at a club before joining him for an after-party on the bus. Once there, she alleges he tried to have sex with her and she said no. She claims he told her to “shut up” and proceeded to have sex with her without protection, despite her objections.
Shantel, who is staring in E!’s upcoming reality show, Platinum Life, has yet to comment publicly about the charges. See a teaser for the show, featuring Shantel below.
