The rape allegations against Nelly take a grim turn.
The shocking rape accusations that have come out against the rapper Nelly since yesterday have been turning heads in all sectors of the hip-hop community. His lawyer is claiming that the woman who is making the claims is fabricating what is now come to be a very damaging story, while other rappers such as Akon have stated that Nelly is an upstanding individuals and that these claims are almost certainly false. However, a new TMZ report provides evidence to the contrary, with his female victim asserting that he forced himself on her without any protection used.
Sources say that the 21-year-old Seattle resident met Nelly at a club in Washington, where she and her friends consumed several drinks at his table and supposedly got "tipsy." According to her, she was invited to an after-party and was driven off with some members of the rapper's posse. In the end, she ended up at his tour bus, where she says she was in Nelly's room with him when he tried to force the issue sexually. She turned him down, after which time he told her to "shut up" and allegedly said he wanted to have sex with her without using a condom, something he did despite her repeated objections.
After the fact, Nelly supposedly offered her money, which she declined. Another woman then kicked her off the bus and threw $100 at her, perhaps judging that to be fair compensation. The rapper's lawyer, Scott Rosenblum, responded to these claims via TMZ, saying: "It does not surprise me that she wanted to have her story publicized. That is playbook 101 of a person with an agenda and clearly she has one. The agenda is money, fame and notoriety." Rosenblum also said that he has an investigator looking into maters and that both he and Nelly "will be able to show by objective evidence and unbiased witnesses that she has zero credibility."
"She's a person who is making a dangerous, fraudulent allegation to accomplish her own goals," the attorney added. Nelly was arrested early Saturday morning and released not long after that.
