Nelly Accused Of Sexual Assault By Two More Women: Report
The allegations of sexual assault swirling around veteran rapper Nelly grew in intensity yesterday, as two more women came forward and spoke out against the emcee’s penchant for wildly inappropriate behavior, which includes groping, unwanted physical advances and masturbating in front of them.
In a report from The Daily Beast, both ladies are said to have been identified in an amendment to court documents filed by Monique Greene, another victim of Nelly’s supposed sexual assault crimes, who is suing the rapper for assault and defamation. Karen A. Koehler, Greene’s attorney, says that one accuser is both a mother in a committed relationship and also a member of the United States military. The other woman is “a young English mom who doesn’t want to be haunted by happened to her”, according to the lawyer.
“You’re hanging out with the artist and it’s fun,” Koehler added of her clients, “and then things change … in an instant.” Earlier this week, authorities in England had reached out about the new allegations, although there’s no indication how far (or not) that investigation has progressed. Koehler is hinting at even more heat coming Nelly’s way, as she says that more accusers could be popping up in the very near future.
The claims against Nelly stem back to the early 2000s, with only certain stories being made public either by Greene’s attorney or otherwise at this time. One thing is for sure: with the #MeToo and Time’s Up movements only continuing to grow stronger with each passing, the places to hide for men who behave reprehensibly are becoming fewer and far between.
