Nelly has officially filed a countersuit against the woman who falsely accused him of rape.
Well it's official. After we heard rumors last month that Nelly was going to countersue the woman who falsely accused him of rape, the St. Louis rapper did just that on Friday in Seattle. TMZ reports that Nelly filed the suit Friday, and claims that the accuser came onto him first, before lying about their sexual encounter to get him arrested.
Nelly’s suit states that Monique Greene made her way into his VIP section of the nightclub where he was headlining, and started coming onto him hard. Nelly says he then invited her to join him and others back on his tour bus. He says they had consensual sex on the tour bus, and Greene only got mad when one of his performers, which he told police was a backup dancer, entered the room to use the bathroom. At that point, Nelly says Greene got "aggressive and disruptive" and was asked to leave then. Greene called for an Uber and then called police to report the alleged incident which would eventually lead to Nelly's arrest for rape.
nellFollowing his arrest though, Greene and her attorney made several statements on the Internet that falsely accused him of raping her. He says the statements were a clear and malicious attempt to get him prosecuted, which ultimately didn't work.
In addition, Nelly says her claims cost him a lot of money too. He was forced to cancel a scheduled show and also damaged his reputation in the music business.
