Nelly under investigation for sexual assault
American rapper, entrepreneur and occasional actor Nelly is under investigation for sexual assault again. The alleged assault happened after his December 5 concert in Essex, England.
The accuser claims that when she approached the rapper for a photo he led her and her friends to his dressing room. Once they were there he reportedly took her into an attached private room where she claims he masturbated in front of her and attempted to remove her shirt.
She also says that he forced her to perform oral sex but could not report the assault to the police immediately after because she feared they would not believe her.
Scott Rosenblum, Nelly’s lawyer, told The Sun: “Nelly welcomes a thorough investigation. Nelly is confident that once investigated, these claims will be determined to be disingenuous”.
The alleged incident occurred two months after another woman, 22-year-old Monique Greene, claimed Nelly raped her on his tour bus after a gig in Washington. He strongly denied her story.
Another woman has also alleged she was sexually assaulted when the rapper put his hand up her dress after a show in Camden, London, in June, 2016.
