It's been a tough weekend for rapper and singer Nelly, who was arrested on Saturday after Rape allegations were filed against him in Washington. The 42-year old was later released from custody that same day but was booked for investigation of second-degree rape, according to Us Weekly. A woman, who was supposedly the victim, called 911 a little before 4 AM on Saturday, claiming that she was sexually assaulted by Nelly inside his Tour bus. The woman claimed that he was forcing her to have sex with him.

The singer and rapper had just performed at the White River Amphitheater when he was arrested at about 4:40 AM that same morning. According to TMZ, Nelly and the woman met at a club and proceeded to go to his tour bus, where the alleged rape happened.

Rapper releases public statement via Twitter

On Sunday morning, Nelly took to Twitter to share that he was "beyond shocked" that he fell target to the "false allegation" of rape and sexual abuse. In a series of tweets, the singer and rapper claimed that he was "completely innocent" and that as soon as the investigation is complete, the result would be "very clear that I am the victim." An hour later, he tweeted again to clarify that "I have not been charged with a Crime, therefore, no bail was required.

I was released, pending further investigation."

Lawyer expresses his disgust at 'false allegations'

Nelly isn't the only one to express his disappointment and disgust for what happened on early Saturday morning. Nelly's lawyer, Scott Rosenblum also released a statement to E! News, saying that the woman had an "agenda" in mind, which is why she made up the story. He said, "The agenda is money, fame, and notoriety." Rosenblum also clarified that they already have their own investigators on the case, to prove that the woman has "zero credibility" and that she was only making "a dangerous, fraudulent allegation" against Nelly.

According to TMZ, the "21-year-old woman alleges that she turned down Nelly’s advances, which prompted him to tell her to “shut up” before forcing her to have sex without a condom."

Singer to proceed with tour throughout October

Nelly is currently on tour and will perform in venues throughout the rest of the month. He will head over to Jacksonville, Tampa, and West Palm Beach in Florida this week for three shows, and will perform at the Oak Mountain Amphitheatre in Pelham, Alabama next week.

He will also perform for two nights at the Verizon Amphitheatre in Alpharetta, Georgia on October 20 and 21. For more information on his tour dates, visit his official website.
