Rapper Nelly Accused of Assaulting Two More Women: Reports
A lawsuit filed by a woman who said she was assaulted by Nelly is claiming that the rapper sexually assaulted two women in England.
Attorney Scott Rosenblum told Fox News that the new allegations are “completely fabricated,” adding that the lawsuit is a “money grab” attempt.
The complaint, filed Jan. 22 in Seattle, did not list the names of the women who were allegedly assaulted by the 43-year-old rapper, born Cornell Iral Haynes Jr.
The Associated Press reported that Nelly then filed court papers Friday in King County Superior Court, denying the claims against him.
The complaint alleges that he raped a fan in October 2017 on a tour bus. The other assaults, in England, allegedly occurred in December 2017 and June 2017, AP reported.
Nelly was arrested on his bus parked at a Seattle-area Wal-Mart in October after the fan, a 22-year-old college student, called 911 about the alleged assault.
In the amended complaint, the woman said that after she called the police, her name went public and she was attacked on social media websites. She decided not to testify further in a criminal case against Nelly as “she felt that she could not stand up against a celebrity and the criminal justice system would fail her,” the document said, according to AP.
