AceShowbiz - %cNelly% is once again under investigation for sexual assault. Essex police have launched a sexual assault investigation against the rapper after a woman claimed that he sexually assaulted her following a performance at Cliffs Pavilion in England, according to TMZ.
The incident reportedly took place on December 5, 2017. The accuser said that she went to take a picture with the rapper. He got quite close to her after the snap, leading him to invite the woman and her friends to his dressing room.
However, shortly after they arrived, Nelly allegedly took the woman into another room next door, where he began masturbating in front of her. She claimed that the Texas spitter also tried kissing her and pulling her top off before he pushed her head down and forced her to perform oral sex. The woman claimed she got up and ran away at the point, which prompted Nelly to call her a "c**t."
As for why it took two months for her to report the alleged incident to police, the woman said she hesitated as she didn't think anyone would believe her.
Nelly's attorney, Scott Rosenblum, issued a statement denying the allegations, calling it "disingenuous." He said, "These allegations arose after Ms. Green amended her suit for money to include a reference to these claims. The fact that the police are investigating these claims is not new information and Nelly welcomes a thorough investigation."
"Nelly was accompanied by his girlfriend during this tour and she was at his side throughout," he continued. "It is important that police investigate every allegation of this nature."
Nelly was previously arrested for allegedly raping 21-year-old Monique Greene on his tour bus following a show in Washington. The case was dropped in October last year after the accuser refused to "testify further in a criminal proceeding against him."
