Last week, Nelly was taken into custody by Washington police for allegedly raping a woman on his Tour Bus. The 21-year-old was said to have met Nelly in a club where she and her friends drank at his table. She was invited back to his tour bus which was apparently parked at a Walmart parking lot. The woman told police that though she rejected his advances, Nelly told her to "shut up" before raping her.

False claims

Following the woman's allegations of rape last weekend, Nelly took to Twitter to tell fans he is innocent. The rapper said he was shocked and felt "targeted," before making it clear that he was released without bail as there was no proof of the allegations.

Though he told fans, he appreciated their support, and he ultimately decided not to show up for his concert with Florida Georgia Line on Saturday night. While police continued the investigation, Nelly's lawyer Scott Rosenblum released a statement calling the accuser's claims "fabricated." Following claims that Nelly tried to keep her quiet with money, Rosenblum said that the rapper is prepared to take any legal action possible to "redress the damage" she has caused.

Bullying a victim

Earlier this week, TMZ reported that the accuser called Nelly out for "intimidating a witness" due to his lawyer's claims about her wanting money and fame. Rosenblum fired back telling the media outlet that Nelly will continue to respond to her "baseless" allegations.

Fans wondered whether or not Nelly would show up at his October 12th show in Jacksonville, Florida amidst all the controversy. The rapper is clearly confident that he is innocent as he performed on Thursday night.

On Friday, TMZ reported that the woman who claimed Nelly raped her wanted the investigation to be dropped. Her lawyer, Karen Koehler, released a statement saying that her client would not testify in front of a judge if the investigation continues.

Her reasoning for dropping the Case is apparently due to the hate she has received. Her lawyer told TMZ that the phone calls from reporters and hateful articles all over the internet are taking a toll on the woman who just wants to focus on school.

After hearing that the woman wants the case dropped, Nelly's lawyer told TMZ that this false story had affected Nelly and his family both emotionally and financially.

He is demanding a public apology and still hopes the rapper will take proper legal action against her.

As of now, the woman has yet to respond to the request for a public apology.
