Nelly Under Criminal Investigation For Second Sexual Assault Allegation In The UK
Nelly is back in the news regarding the latest sexual assault allegation against him that supposedly happened in the UK back in December. The “Country Grammar” rapper is now under criminal investigation, something that his attorney said may be new information to us, but not to the St. Louis artist.
Nelly’s lawyer, Scott Rosenblum, told TMZ that Nelly being under criminal investigation is something that the star welcomes, certain that the woman accusing him of sexual assault, 22-year-old Monique Greene, will have no case because he maintains that the accusation is not true.
“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,” he said. “Nelly is confident that once investigated, these claims will be determined to be disingenuous.”
Rosenblum even mentioned Nelly’s long-time girlfriend Shantel Jackson, saying that she was with Nelly at the time Greene claims Nelly assaulted her, making Greene’s accusation even more suspect.
“Nelly was accompanied by his girlfriend during this tour and she was at his side throughout,” he said. “It is important that police investigate every allegation of this nature.”
We told you that Jackson herself took to Instagram last month to confirm that she was with her man. The 33-year-old wrote that she was with Nelly “…at those venues, in the dressing rooms, and on that tour bus.”
And although the first rape case against Nelly was dropped, he still has an uphill battle to fight this second one.
The incident allegedly went down December 5 after Nelly’s performance at Cliffs Pavilion in Essex. The accuser says she went to take a picture with Nelly and she says he placed his arm tightly behind her and asked if she could stay behind to talk to him.
They went to his dressing room with her friends and she says he then asked her to come to a room next door. She claims once in the room he dropped his pants and began masturbating in front of her. She also claims he put his hand on her top and tried pulling it off. She says he also tried kissing her as she tried to bolt from the room.
The woman says Nelly put his right hand on the back of her head and his left hand on her shoulder, forced her head down, pushing his erect penis into her mouth. She says she ran out of the room as he called her a c***. The woman says she didn’t go to cops immediately because she didn’t think she’d be believed.
