Nelly‘s rape accuser has dropped her case against him but cops are still investigating the alleged crime.
This means that Nelly is not fully off the hook yet. Last week, the rapper’s accuser revealed that she will stop pursuing the case against “Country Grammar” star because she can’t go up against a celebrity who has unlimited resources. She is also refusing to testify in the case. Despite her noncooperation, cops are still actively investigating the case.
Auburn PD is not letting the case go and plans to present the prosecutor with evidence in the coming week, TMZ reported. So it will now be up to the prosecutor to decide if he wants to file charges against the rap star. Last weekend, Nelly performed in South Florida with T.I. where he was seen in good spirit as if a weight has been lifted off his shoulder. Nevertheless, his attorney, Scott Rosenblum, says he is confident that the case will be closed base on the evidence presented or lack thereof. “I would expect the police to do their due diligence,” he added.
While Nelly can breathe a sigh of relief from the accuser refusal to cooperate with police, he is still not completely off the hook. If the prosecutor decides to file rape charges against him, it means that he will have to stand trial and at the very least that will taint his brand. During a rant on Twitter last week, Nelly indicated that he would explore legal options against his accuser for defamation and for damaging the reputation of his good name. It’s still not clear if he will still pursue that option. At the very least he wants this whole case to go away.
Nelly is currently touring the U.S. with Florida Georgia Line band and was set for a performance in Washington at the time of his arrest.
Nelly rape case just keeps getting deeper with his accuser claiming that he raped her without a condom.
The rap legend was arrested on Saturday night after a 21-year-old female from Seattle, Washington filed a police report claiming that he raped her on his tour bus. Nelly has denied the allegation claiming that he is being blackmailed, but now the alleged rape victim is making more serious charges by claiming that he forced her to have sex with him without using protection.
The victim says that she met Nelly and company at a club in Washington where she and her friends partied with him. She said that she drank too much alcohol and felt tipsy afterward. She says that the rapper then invited her to an after party and then to his tour bus and she went. That’s when she said Nelly got antsy with her and forced her to have sex with him without using a condom. She claimed that she told him no and then he said shut up and do it.
The 21-year-old female then claimed that a woman came and kicked her off the bus and threw a $100 at her. She said that Nelly even offered her money and she declined it. Nelly attorney, Scott Rosenblum, says the victim is lying and he has several witnesses who will show that she has no credibility. Scott Rosenblum told TMZ that the victim is looking for money, fame, and notoriety and that is the reason why she publicized her story.
Nelly was arrested Saturday for second-degree rape, but he revealed on Twitter today that he was never charged with any crimes and cops are currently investigating the case, which means charges could come later. “To be absolutely clear. I have not been charged with a crime therefore no bail was required. I was released, pending further investigation,” he wrote on Twitter.
