Nelly Insinuates Alleged Rape Victim Is A “Liar” In New Cryptic IG Post

Published

Nelly was taken into custody over the weekend after a woman claimed he raped her on his tour bus. The rapper, however, is calling BS.

On Saturday, the St. Louis native was booked on suspicion of rape in Washington state after allegedly forcing a woman to have sex without a condom.

The Auburn Police Department confirmed the reported incident with a statement that read:

“At 3:48 a.m. a female called 911 to report that she was sexually assaulted by a male, who is known as the rapper ‘Nelly.’ The alleged assault was reported to occur on the tour bus that was parked at the listed location. Nelly had performed at the White River Amphitheater just hours before. After Patrol Officers investigated the incident, at 4:37 a.m. Nelly was taken into custody and booked at the SCORE jail facility.”

Following the arrest, the 42-year-old’s lawyer said in a statement:

“It does not surprise me that she wanted to have her story publicized. That is playbook 101 of a person with an agenda and clearly she has one. The agenda is money, fame and notoriety.”

Nelly, who is on tour with Florida Georgia Line, tweeted to his fans following his release, writing: “Let me say that I am beyond shocked that I have been targeted with this false allegation. I am completely innocent. I am confident that once the facts are looked at , it will be very clear that I am the victim of a false allegation.”

He added, “I do want to apologize to my loved ones for the embarrassment and for putting myself in a situation where I could be victimized by this false and defaming allegation.”

The rapper concluded, “I also want to thank my fans for their unwavering support. They know me. I assure you I will be vindicated. And I assure you, I will pursue every legal option to address this defaming claim. Thank you.”

He also took to Instagram to suggest that the woman is a liar. On Monday morning, the rapper reposted Colin Kaepernick’s tweet initially shutting down claims he would stand for the National Anthem if he could play again.

“A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on,” Kaepernick and Nelly both quoted.

Will also snapped some fun flicks with his son Jaden before greeting fans and speaking with reporters including HipHollywood.

He told HipHollywood that he was super excited to reunite with his Suicide Squad director David Ayer for the film, and would “work with him whenever he wants to.

“I love his madness how he creates,” gushes Smith. “How he thinks about scenes, the way he works with actors, it’s some of the best psychological work of any director I’ve ever worked with.”

In the film Smith plays an LAPD cop in a mythical world of orcs, elves and fairies … and Ayer told us, he couldn’t think of anyone better for the role.

“We had such a good time on Suicide Squad together and this role is kind of perfect for him, it’s an edgy movie, buts it’s funny. He’s got the best sense of humor of anybody I know.”

BRIGHT debuts on Netflix December 22. Peep the newest trailer below.
