In another case of sexual assault, rape charges formed against rapper Nelly have been dropped. The woman who accused Nelly is a 21 year old college student, that claims Nelly had assaulted her on his tour bus after a show in Washington. Nelly was arrested for second degree rape and briefly detained in a Des Moines jail.
Karen Koehler, the attorney representing the student wrote in a letter that she no longer wanted to press charges because “she believes the system is going to fail her.” The attorney also stated her client is also refusing after a wave of intimidation and blacklash from Nelly’s camp.
“Nelly has suffered very real damage to his reputation,” his attorney Scott Rosenblum said in a statement to Page Six on Friday. “He has incurred economic loss and painfully has watched his family suffer. As a result, Nelly is planning to proceed with litigation as the first step in restoring his reputation. We were confident, that what our investigation revealed from the outset of this allegation would ultimately be clear and Nelly would be vindicated.”
If she is lying, we don’t blame him, SMH
