Nelly found himself in a mountain of legal troubles after he was arrested this morning for allegedly raping a woman on his tour bus.
The news sent shockwaves throughout the hip hop community since Nelly is seen as someone who is hardly in any legal problems. TMZ broke the story on Saturday that the rapper is behind bars on a rape charge. He has been touring with Florida Georgia Line band when the alleged incident took place. They even have a show tonight in Ridgefield, Washington.
According to the police report, Nelly tour bus was parked inside a Walmart parking lot in Washington where the alleged incident took placed around 3:48 AM. The unnamed female filed a police report and name Nelly as the man who raped her. The “Country Grammar” rapper was charged with second degree rape and is currently sitting in a jail cell.
“Nelly is the victim of a completely fabricated allegation,” Nelly attorney said. “Our initial investigation, clearly establishes the allegation is devoid of credibility and is motivated by greed and vindictiveness.” The attorney also indicated that the rapper will likely sue the female once he is vindicated in pursuant of any damages done to his good name.
Nelly revealed on Twitter 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.
