Rapper Nelly is facing more problems, as he’s reportedly under investigation over allegations that he sexually assaulted a female fan after a gig in England last December.
According to TMZ, the incident allegedly occurred on the 5th of December after Nelly’s performance at Cliffs Pavilion in Essex.
The Gossip site reported that the woman accusing Nelly claims 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.
According to her, 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.
The accuser 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***.
However, the woman says she didn’t report the incident to the Police, because she felt the authorities wouldn’t believe her.
In a statement by the Essex police, they said: ‘We are investigating after a woman reported to us that she was sexually assaulted at an address in Westcliff on December 5, 2017.
Reacting to the alleged sexual assault, Nelly’s attorney Scott Rosenblum in a statement to TMZ, 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 is confident that once investigated, these claims will be determined to be disingenuous.
“Nelly was accompanied by his girlfriend during this tour and she was at his side throughout. It is important that police investigate every allegation of this nature,” he added.
The alleged incident comes just two months after another woman claimed Nelly raped her on his tour bus.
But the rapper repeatedly denied the rape accusation, and the case was dropped after the woman refused to testify.
