Nelly

As predicted, Nelly's accuser wants the Washington District Attorney to drop a rape case against the 42-year-old rapper. Her reason: She is tired of being bullied in the media.

According to a letter from the woman’s attorney, obtained by The Blast, the 21-year-old “cannot handle” the intimidation she’s allegedly received from Nelly and his lawyer.

The woman's attorney, Karen Koehler, sent a letter to the Auburn Police Dept and the King County DA's office asking authorities to drop the case.

The letter stated the woman "wishes she had not called 911 because she believes the system is going to fail her."

Nelly was taken into custody last Saturday near Auburn, WA, after the woman called 911 to say she was forcibly raped on his tour bus.

According to news reports, the police had "probable cause" to arrest the "Hot In Herre" rapper, but he was released later that morning without charges.

The woman's letter went on to say she wanted to "go back to school and to graduate," but this is not possible "if she remains hidden in her room, crying her heart out."

The letter dramatically touched on the current scandal involving Hollywood movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, who is accused of sexually harassing at least 30 women and as many as a hundred.

"One day, maybe our world will change and thirty women will not be needed to (eventually) speak out against a celebrity who has hurt them in order to be believed," the letter states. "But that day has not yet come."

Nelly and his fiancée, Shantel Jackson, are set to star in E! Network's new reality TV series, The Platinum Life, which, coincidentally, premieres next week.

  • Django the God

    Ayyye must be the money!"

  • HalleMerry

    I have been assaulted.There is NO WAY that I would drop charges if they were legit. This is the same thing that I felt back when those parents took settlement money from Michael Jackson. If you Really believe that your kids were molested,there is NOT ENOUGH money in the world! You want Jail time,or (like me) you will handle that shyt and let them Wish that they were in jail.

  • starbright9449

    Hahahahahaha

  • klwbaby

    She said she is being bullied in the media but I haven't seen her name posted on any websites.

  • klwbaby

    Before the settlement money, he said he would not make the accusations public if Michael agreed to a 3 movie deal with a major studio.

  • Django the God

    Be a proud groupie.

  • Marlika

    Exactly! I was sexually assaulted in high school. I remember having to go pick the mofo out in a line up. Scared as hell that the mofo could see me threw the double glass. ? And had to testify in front of a grand jury. The scariest shit ever!! But I refuse to let his monkey ass get away with what he did!! ??

  • Marlika

    A rape victims identify is protected. Her simple ass needs to stop watching the news and stay off social media. I think it's her guilt of lying catching up with her or as someone stated her simple ass accepted money.

  • HalleMerry

    Hugs to you sweetie,and I'm sorry that you had to go through that.

  • MISSMEWITDATBULL

    Hugs to both of you survivors. Stay strong, sisters.

  • HalleMerry

    Wait,what? Who made the movie deal with MJ?

  • Marlika

    ?? Thank you, you too!! You know he assaulted serveral young black girls and they could not find him until he went to an all white school and raped a white gal! ? That was 20 years ago, I still monitor his where shouts throught the sex registry website. ?

  • LithiumHaitianFlower

    Translation settle with a gag order

  • SummerBaby

    I actually find this a little sad & disturbing. I was skeptical of the story when it first broke. I don’t know if she was violated or not. This is just sad for true victims especially when dealing with wealthy powerful men.

  • Malcom Flex

    Peace to you, Sis.

  • Malcom Flex

    =paid her off.

  • SummerBaby

    This young lady is only 21 years old. She’s young enough to be his daughter. I’m torn on this one. ?

  • HalleMerry

    I swear,we need a real life Dexter to off these sick FKXS!

  • klwbaby

    The father and his entertainment lawyer came up with that agreement. The father was one of the writers for the Robin Hood: Men in Tights movie. After that he had a hard time trying to make another movie so I guess he figured if he can make Michael Jackson as a business partner, he would have a better chance at getting another movie made. But why would someone want a business partner who u thought molested your son.

  • Miss Thang

    I understand her feelings. My counselor in high school told my mom and the police that I was molested by my cousin and some of my family members didn't believe it so I just shut down and didn't have the mental fortitude or energy to testify against him.

  • Django the God

    Was she saying it was Nelly, or someone in his entourage?

  • SummerBaby

    I’m not sure. I think Nelly

  • SummerBaby

    Sorry you had to go through that. ??

  • Dainese

    Nelly. Without a condom.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO keep it interesting. Ur giving up already? We were rooting for you.

  • Dainese

    The public scrunity she is referring to is in Nelly's mentions on social media. She's reading his comment section. Because.. If what I know is right..

    ...no one even knows who she is so if shes allowing someone's WORDS to overshadow Nelly's alleged ACTIONS she's a soft one.

    I don't know. With everything to gain.. It doesn't make sense to put it out there and then take it back. And Nelly is a Scorpio. He didn't pay off SHIT. He would've pulled out all the stops to prove his innocence and not have to come off a dime.

  • Django the God
  • Dainese

    Exactly.
    Didn't even get Nelly to even say he had CONSENSUAL sex with her.

    She pulled out early.

  • Dainese

    Honestly.. I've never been raped.

    But my mind goes to..

    If he raped her without a condom.. Why not immediately get a rape kit after getting tossed off the bus?

  • Django the God

    Maybe he busted in her E.I.

    [consensually]

  • bemetoo

    so she just let nelly fwak her and make these rape claims then say no fwak it i dont want to continue im being bully and im not gonna win???? bih if he fwak you raped you nutted on u why would u not win??? oh wait the truth might come out??

  • TheOwley

    Rapist do count on the mounting pressure on victims to drop the charges so they can avoid prosecution. And then he has the gall to threaten her with prosecution and demand a public apology. Oh please, press on dude. I hope she finds her courage to re-file charges if he did that.

  • pure_rachet

    publicity stunt for The Platinum Life.

  • MoniLove

    I am a mother of a son and with all this Bill Cosby, Harvey Weinstein, and Nelly I am fearful because this opens up for a woman to accuse a man of a crime and everyone will believe her. These females need to stay out of the hotels rooms of producers and athletes and off the tour bus of rappers and singers. If I had a daughter I would tell her if a man invites you to his room don't go there expecting to play UNO. Women need to empower women by telling them you can say no and walk away. He is/was a man in power and he had something they wanted.....fame and money and stardom and he basically said if you want to be in my movie give me the goodies. They had a choice!!!

  • morenYAHdelsur

    That’s some disparaging @$$ publicity.

  • Vonn

    IF she is lying, he should get a public apology & she should be prosecuted.

  • Miss Thang

    She did get a rape kit.

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    Exactly all this for nothing??

  • Being bad is way more fun

    Now he needs to sue her !!!!!!

  • Electricbird83

    I wouldn’t err on the side he didn’t do it just because she is pulling her claim..? the sad thing is it happens more times then less and the even sadder fact is some of the women who have been “forced” upon once or so in their life are turning around and defending him.

  • pure_rachet

    I know and I hate to say it because so many women (including myself) have been victims. No reason to drop the charges when her name was never released. Famous people on the verge of going off the radar will do anything for the coin. Note how his fiancee stayed silent and stayed with him...

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Where are all the people who were prematurely calling the man a rapist and a predator? Of course, they're awfully quiet now. People made all kinds of assumptions about the man when we had no idea if a crime actually took place.

  • Lady M

    That's not how it works ma'am. You file a claim and then you have to prove it. Just because you made the claim doesn't make it true. You bring your evidence and you begin by explaining what her purpose on the bus was. I think all this mumbo jumbo is code for - "Nelly won't be making a settlement offer and so my client won't get any money outta this and won't be able to pay me so lemme drop this case now."

  • Lady M

    You acting like you were there and saw her got raped with your own eyes. If he is innocent then he has every right to threaten to prosecute and to demand an apology.

  • Lady M

    A rape kit proves that they had sex. Not necessarily that she was raped unless this was a case where he was saying that he didn't have sex with her. That's why he was "apologizing" to his friends/family aka his kids and the woman he was dating for 7 years.

  • Pebbles

    If there is enough evidence the state may pick it up, but to me the damage is done, just the accusation alone will have a cloud hanging over his head. Either way... this should be a learning lesson and wake up call

  • Pebbles

    No one even knows who she is......except everyone that was on the bus

  • Shanese

    It was only a matter of time. She lied. She doesn’t have proof and now she wants to drop the case. Nelly already said he has lawyered up and she knows it’s gonna get ugly when they come for her

  • Shanese

    He has already said he’s going to

  • Shanese

    Guess the comments are getting to her. Even though we don’t know her name people she knows people are referring to her in their comments

  • the guest

    I know Nelly has always been one of the good guys in rap. But he did this. He lapsed in judgement and self control and raped this girl who placed herself in a vulnerable position.

    I believe her that Nelly and his team are intimidating her. Just like Birth of a Nation director Nate and his college Black Student Union used intimidation to drive his victim eventually to suicide. Black community needs to stop minimizing rape, intimidating victims o rape, and glorifying celebrities who don't care about anyone except for themselves and their own interests.

    This young woman must have gotten death threats to have her lawyer request dropping the charges. That's not recanting, that's giving up out of fear and stress.

  • ?Royalty?

    My gut is saying.......he did this ish.

  • ?Royalty?

    Rhianna wanted to drop the abuse charges against Chris Brown too. It didnt mean that he didnt beat the hail out of her that night tho, did It?

    Dropping charges doesn't prove his innocence. It only proves that she's scared.

  • unknown user

    People still watch reality shows? I hope this wasn't for publicity, it's never that serious.

  • Never home but always reppin’

    You know for a fact he did this how? Were you there? I don't know if he did this or not and I'm pretty sure you have no idea also. It's unfortunate she has chosen not to proceed so that the facts can come to light.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    None of us knows what happened on that tour bus, although a lot of people seem to be assuming the worst. But this is a case of he said, she said.
    Dropping charges doesn't "prove" she's scared. It actually proves nothing one way or another.

  • the guest

    There is also the possibility that some stranger somewhere in the world mysteriously paid off her tuition and her parents mortgage. Definitely somebody used intimidation, power, and money to make this go away for a victim's lawyer to request dropping charges.

  • MythCalledLove

    Reality shows replaced soap operas. On another note Dynasty is returning of course it's an updated version. If your too young to remember (I was a mere babe myself)..lol The original Dynasty will retain its crown. The Carringtons, Alexis & Krystal(remember her perfume) had epic fights. Dominique Deveraux Blake's half sister. I can take the f*ckery from soap operas but reality shows depict real people. Who would hv thought the amount of f*ckery we now hv. Sorry I digress..

  • MythCalledLove

    True so true. Sometimes you want to drop it and the state is like " Oh no you dont" Slap a hostile witness label on you and drill your ass to pieces. But all that cost too much and it would probably be settled out of court. Clause that you can't speak or sell the story.

  • MythCalledLove

    If you file a claim the state can proceed because the state is not working for the accused. Then his lawyer can get everything dropped at the show cause hearing. And the state's attorney would probably hv a very short career. The court does not like when it wastes taxpayer money on B.S. that should hv never made it that far anyway.

  • the guest

    This is a blog forum where all are free to respectfully express their opinion.

    I respect your opinion and I respect my own opinion.

    My opinion is that Nelly did this, his team handled the victim and situation poorly, and then used intimidation, power, celebrity, and money for damage control and to silence the victim.

    People are victimized every day. Most victims don't want money. Most victims want an acknowledgement of their pain and apology from their offender. They want moral justice.

    But most offenders and their enablers instead slander and try to discredit victims and the only way for a victim to get any form of moral justice is in the form of criminal charges or lawsuit.

  • MARCUS

    OK YOU IDIOT. WERE YOU THERE? NO YOU WERE NOT. YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT HAPPENED. PEOPLE LIKE YOU ARE SO QUICK TO TAKE A SIDE BEFORE YOU HAVE THE FACTS. GET IT TOGETHER. HE MAY HAVE DONE HE MAY NOT HAVE DONE IT. WE DO NOT KNOW.

    I don't blame you at all for monitoring him. How do you find the stenghth to do that? I don't think I could do that if it were me.

  • the guest

    Love your comments and perspectives. Keep it interesting, exactly. People were rooting for her because something about this claim just seemed legit.

  • the guest

    Dear god, I'm sorry. So sorry.

  • the guest

    But that's not how they see it these days.

    45 year old men dress and act 18 and think they are sexual peers of 20 year old girls. People need to start judging men on this the way they judge older women carrying on with 20 year old boys.

    As far as I'm concerned, The father in Nelly should've been like why this child on my bus?

    A near fifty year old man has no business at all even flirting with a woman young enough to be his daughter. Period. I'm in my late thirties, married, and a mother. And even if I wasn't married, the only thing a 21 year old boy can say to me is paper or plastic when packing my groceries at the supermarket.

  • PRPSP

    Or maybe this woman wasn't being truthful and thought she was going to get some type of come up out of this. Since Nelly fought back, which she and her attorney probably didn't expect, she realized this wouldn't be as easy as she thought it would be. SOME women love to ''Use what they got to get what they want''. But when ''what they want'' they don't ''get'', then they cry foul. Seen it a million times and these men pay the price...

  • the guest

    Exactly. Notice she says she just want to focus on school. Her tuition is paid and certain parents mortgage is paid too. Shantel's not giving up her lifestyle and she probably made Nelly pay her off.

  • PRPSP

    thank you!

  • the guest

    Under the table pay off. Not all settlements are on record.

  • the guest

    This sick world a parent bargaining a child for profit.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Now people will say that Nelly paid off his accuser.

    Once an accusation is out there's no going back.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    I'm 45 and remember Dynasty although I wasn't a fanatic.

    They should leave those classic soaps in the past but it's obviously that Hollywood has run out of ideas-well if you're a movie buff it's been obvious for a while.

  • Peace

    Let's be clear folks. Nelly paid this chic off. Lawyer negotiated a big ole check. Agreed to Nellys terms to drop charges and put out a public retraction to drop said charges.
    Just like the Michael Jordan son case.
    He took advantage of that girl and his lawyer got a deal with the chic fast. He is not new to this rodeo. Money Talks.
    Nelly did not want a Mike Tyson prison term. Trust.

  • We Can Do This

    Charge or no charge he has a stigma of rape tied to his reputation for life.

  • We Can Do This

    Her college fees weren't going to pay themselves.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    If that's true there's a money trail and one of the gossip sites will find it.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    So this trick ruined someone's life and wants to play the victim again.

    People are going to find out her identity and then she won't be able to go back to school any way.

    Besides if what she says is true and Nelly rapes another woman then she should feel guilty for not having prevented it.

    Also the law should force women who cry rape to testify or catch a charge.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Exactly.

    Nelly can't clear his name ever now that Ms. Victim has decided that she ain't going to testify.

    Pathetic.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    I am sorry that that happened to you.

    The same exact thing happened to be and was the person was also family member but I don't put this incident in the same category as molestation since this lady went to the bus on her own volition and she was an adult.

    I think she was mad that Nelly humped and dumped her ( someone claimed that she was physically kicked off the tour bus and someone threw a hundred dollar bill at her).

  • klwbaby

    It truly is. That's why after I read that I started to think that Michael didn't touch that kid.

  • Peace

    Sorry. The public will never know the details.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Sure they will.

  • T865!

    But you do???

  • TheOwley

    I wasn't there but I understand about the rape culture and how women are victimized. It is possible she is lying but it's also possible she is telling the truth. I will go with the latter. If she is lying, then prosecution is in order. I choose to believe her. If I'm wrong, I'm wrong .... I WASN'T THERE. I also wasn't there for OJ's drama, Harvey Weinstein, and all of them. But we all still have an opinion, don't we. Do you know the difference between having an opinion and presenting eye witness information to formulate an opinion.

    AND BTW: Whenever the online community comments, they ALLLL do so based on many factors such as personal experienced, family, friends, education, etc. and none of which is from an EYE WITNESS perspective. believe her. I also believe some but not all of Cosby's accusers. I believe all of Harvey's accusers.

  • MythCalledLove

    After that shoulder pads were in everything. Even your sweater had shoulder pads. But Dynasty women dresses had them looking like they were dressed with a curtain rod. Linebacker look for days.

  • MythCalledLove

    Are you a lawyer?? Because I must hv missed some classes. I never said you didn't need to prove it.

  • Angela Flowers

    Charges got dropped because he paid her off whether he did it or not. Now her tuition is paid, her parents are about to build a mansion, take an extended vacation overseas, and with the leftover money, they're going to buy properties, invest, and become wealthier all at the expense of another black man...

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    When her attorney started complaining more about the "bullying" than about the alleged "rape" I suspected that this 'victim' had lied.
    No way Cornell walks after 'raping' a yt girl, but Mystikal had to turn himself in for the same allegation from a Black woman. Intimidation my eye! If those good ol' boys on that tour believed for one second that Cornell had raped a yt girl THEY would have demanded that he be held. Same way they came for Ye over T. Swift, they would have posse'd up and rode hard for this young yt fan. (IMO)

  • Rayne

    That's a got damn lie. If somebody did that to me I'm going all the way into it until the end. This chic ain't even famous enough to be bullied in the media. She should stop the lying ?

    this is why people don't want to come forward in rape.

    Everyone knows the name of the accuser's attorney and they will hack her computer or they will find someone at the police station who has the records which identifies the accuser or the accuser's neighbors will notice new found wealth for the family.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Nelly's been a star for almost three decades and he's never been accused of sexual assault before, but he starts raping women at this age?

    Unless some past victims come forward this accusation is bogus.

  • SweetTEE

    Stay woke

  • SweetTEE

    Why would a white woman, in 2017, be "afraid" after a NEGRO actually raped her? She would take it to the furthest extent. I can only think that there is some sort of possible evidence to prove she's lying. If it were me, I would have a gun bc theres NO way I would let you get away with what you did to me. To go that far and turn back? Naw.

  • speakinmymind

    All that speculation, innuendo and misinformation is the guest's modus operandi when posting comments. It's sad and disgusting so just down vote that bullshit and ignore it.

  • freelancepimp .

    There are a lot of people saying he paid her but we can't be sure of that. If she filed a false claim against Nelly she might realize that she can be fined and go to jail also. That's been happening a lot more. Before we say He paid her let's see what Nelly's camp response is to this. Because if he paid her the D.A.usually drops the case automatically cause she can no longer be used as a witness in her own case. According to reports, the way she is asking the D.A. to drop it does not sound like a settlement.

  • Rayne

    Awe. Sorry that happened to u.

  • Li

    What intimidation? It's part of the process of getting to the truth, esp. the deposition part. I don't believe this young lady had a case to begin with, or else she would be all over the TV set and news screaming "rape".

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Is there evidence out there that he paid her off?
    Or are people just speculating?

  • MARCUS

    Do you have any proof of this? Is there any receipts, bank statements, written contracts?

  • the guest

    I never believed Michael touched any child. I do think he was unwise as an extremely wealthy black man to have any strangers in his house.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    As much as black men have been known to be easy targets for different types of false accusations and charges, it's sad that so many black folks are quick to believe the accusations against this black man, although none of were there and none of us knows what happened. Sad.

  • MARCUS

    The girl probably knew she was lying.

  • MARCUS

    In a way you are right. However, with Cosby a lot of those assaults took place during the 60's and 70's and it was handled differently back then. You did not talk about it. Cosby did confess to this but I do think the women should have come forward much earlier than now.

  • dontgetblocked

    This is why women don't report rapes. Nelly is a blastard who sings sexy songs to little girls...karma will catch up to him. I will NOT be watching his show or supporting him in anyway.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I know I would if it was me and I was innocent. Even if she only had $500 in her bank account, I would still sue and take whatever she's got... not for the money, but just to send a message. That man's reputation if permanently damaged for something he may not even have done.

  • dontgetblocked

    Two weeks ago, they said the same thing about Harvey Weinstein.

  • MARCUS

    Oh nice. Nelly is the problem. How about the idiot parents that took the girl to the concert? Oh thats right 21st century parenting anything goes.

  • Lady_Elle

    According to a letter from the woman’s attorney, obtained by The Blast, the 21-year-old “cannot handle” the intimidation she’s allegedly received from Nelly and his lawyer.....

    This could be code for... WE HAVE NOTHING!!!

    If this young lady was raped.... if the rapist did not stop to put on a condom.. there should be bodily fluids.

    She reported it in the middle of the night. That is usually a trip to the hospital for a rape kit.

  • Truth

    Are you serious !you damn right in that situation he was a problem !How was the parent in the moment was to know a grown ass man would play with their litttle daughters hair!Are you fuckin kidding ?Ad for her being there we live in a world where we see everything but touching is another!

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    LOL thank you.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Did I find the potential rape interesting or her desire to put this story out there in the first place?

  • wiseone

    There would be bodily fluids if it was consensual sex.

  • wiseone

    That has nothing to do with Nellie. I believe they had consensual sex.

  • sealsaa

    Why? Because their stories will be challenged instead of people jumping to the conclusion that an accused man is guilty just because the alleged victim said he was? Good.

    The girl's identity hasn't even been revealed, but we know who Nelly is, and his face is being plastered under "Rape" headlines before guilt has even been established. How is that fair?

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Nah.. not a good example to use.
    Harvey Weinstein's history of sexual abuse was known of and talked about for 20+ years.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I agree. Its a shame that Disqus doesn't allow down-voting any more.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    So where are the other women that Nelly sexually assaulted?

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    True but her identity will be exposed.

    Remember how someone found the identity of Kobe Bryant's accuser and that was almost 15 years ago and you can research much more information online more quickly and easily than ever.

  • AQUEEN

    Sounds like a payoff

  • Rhyme and Reason

    She probably had consensual sex, and got thrown off the bus, got mad and reported her encounter as rape. Nelly was stoo-pid to be still sleeping with groupies or random women.

    And, he better check his handlers about hanger ons, and how they should be handled because his crew will used these groupies, too and discard them.

    Or,

    He forced her, and she got paid-off to go away, which any smart person would do because other passed around groupies will come out of the wood-work! With a rape kit, it would be his word against a Washington white woman, whether she was forced or not.

    Like on that Ballers, show, fellas, get a consensual agreement, permission to video-tape, before you they get drunk or drugged!

  • Peace

    Nelly, Kevin Hart, Usher are just nasty out there smashing random men and women, no telling how many diseases they wives or women got. Nelly ain't marrying nobody just left Ashanti hanging after 10 years. He is selfish, Nelly prolly took that the 21 year old college kid smashed her youthful cakes to smithereens and parts unknown. Completely destroying her. I believe he did that.
    How would he feel if someone did that to his niece or Stank, Stink whatever he call the girl he raised.
    He is filthy twirling little white girl hair on stage singing in they face.

    DA should still press charges.
    I mean why was she on his bus?
    Tea/milk and cookies? He had her on the bus to for one reason.
    No sympathy here. He a clown.

    Right. He lived a law abiding life until 2 weeks before his reality TV show begins? I'm not buying it. This is a stunt, just like his buddy Kevin Hart. These fools rely on stunts for free press so they don't have to pay publicists thousands of dollars for the same thing they can get for free.

    black men do be out her being rough ass hell and beating and raping women why you don't most black and white prostitutes don't even deal with black men don't even want their money

  • Noirluv45

    True, but on the other hand, since Black men know they are targeted, they should not put themselves in such situations. If he's engaged, why was a woman on the tour bus to begin with? That doesn't make any sense to me. SMH.

  • Noirluv45

    Not necessarily though. Many women don't scream rape after they've been raped. They especially don't do it when people assume they are lying.

  • Noirluv45

    I don't believe we'd know what we would do in a situation like this. The inclination is to not believe the person. Look at the comments on this thread. People automatically assume she's lying. That's why women don't report rape. I'd hate to be raped and have to worry about being attacked. I'm sure you would too.

  • Noirluv45

    She probably assumed she was White because Washington state is predominately White.

  • shun king

    cause dude don't learn and push the envelope

  • Noirluv45

    Maybe the accusers never came forward. According to comments here and what I know about how rape victims are vilified, I'd be hard pressed to come forward too.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I agree... It was dumb of him to put himself in a situation where something like this could happen. Then again most of these guys end up thinking with the wrong head, unfortunately. On top of that, deep down I doubt his fiance believed or expected he'd be 100% faithful, especially on the road.

  • BrittBrat2005

    But I don't get it?! If she was raped why stop your claim now? Threats or no threats, keep pursuing your claim to call him out and help other women who may be in the same situation, even if he offers you a settlement out court still go forward stuffs like this need to be in limelight to warn others about the rapist. This nothing to sleep on or sweep it under the rug. It kind makes me believe she lying about the claim, with someone been a rapist it's nothing to underestimate or take lightly call the MONSTER out. I'm like 50/50 right now with this.

  • CT

    Being on tour = groupies...so I am quite sure he probably did sleep with the girl...however ..I am also sure that it was somethijng that she wanted as well else she wouldn't haven't been around them in the first place. What role was she playing to even be on the bus..or even around them...that is if it even happened on the bus..could have occurred in a hotel. Who knows...but one thing I do know...when you lie down with trash...it gets on you. Whether it's true or not. ...his character is now being questioned. Discernment and common sense is free....take advantage of it.

  • Noirluv45

    Who knows? Maybe they are afraid to come forward because they want want to be accused of lying. Isn't that what most people do? Why should they?

  • Noirluv45

    Why? Because said accuser and how she dressed, what she did, what she said, and her sexual history will be under scrutiny and she'd be vilified for coming forward. Seems to me people are taking Nelly's side. He said he didn't do it, so that's good enough for everyone. I don't know whether or not he did or didn't, but I'm not going to immediately call her a liar simply because.

    True, his being accused of rape isn't fair IF he didn't do it, but what if he did. I call him out more on his fondling that little girl's hair and getting all in her space like he was about to sex her.

  • Noirluv45

    How do you know what you would do unless it's happened to you? I'm asking that in all honesty. Being bullied has nothing to do with her, but him being that he's rich and famous. I don't know whether he did it or not, but I am not going to discount her. Plus, his ass shouldn't have a woman that was not his fiance on the bus with him, so this is his fault. He's too old to be so stupid.

  • Noirluv45

    Well, maybe he'll keep them out of his tour bus. Some men are so damn stupid. He put himself in this position. SMH.

  • Noirluv45

    Speaking of speculating, there's a lot of that going on in this tread assuming he's a choir boy and didn't or couldn't rape a woman. I don't know if he did or didn't, but the next time, he better keep random women of his bus.

  • Noirluv45

    Aren't people entitled to their opinions? You're sitting here calling people names because you don't like the content of their post, but the person has every right to speak his/her mind just like you do.

  • Noirluv45

    Marcus, are you Nelly? You are so angry. You act like the person accused you? This isn't your blog and you don't have the right to tell anyone to shut up.

  • Noirluv45

    I hope he's learned his lesson. He's too old to be that stupid.

  • Noirluv45

    Yep, and like that old saying goes, "A hard head makes a soft behind."

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Why would any parent have their child at a Nelly concert?

    He has always sung adult songs.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    But looked what happened to Bill Cosby and Weinstein.

    After one accuser came forward the entire dam broke, but we haven't heard another female accuse Nelly of sexual assault.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Are you serious?

    Look at all of the women who have come forward after that expose' on Weinstein in the NY Times and Nelly doesn't have 0.0001% of the power of a Harvey Weinstein.

    Look how many women came forward after that comic made that joke about Bill Cosby raping women.

    Give me a damn break.

  • Chocolate

    Exactly. We all know what we are up against, and for him to jeopardize his name and paper by putting himself in this position or not having precautions in place to protect his brand, is dumb. So it's like he either did it or is the dumbest negro ever.

  • Chocolate

    If he paid her, wouldn't part of the agreement be to no longer tarnish his name? This statement still makes him look crappy so I don't think he paid off her off but who knows

  • millz

    Maybe she should call Lisa bloom ...

  • the guest

    Your comment encompasses every possible angle and is the best comment on this matter and thread. I've expressed similar views on this very unfortunate situation.

  • http://bettybooplover.tumblr.com/ Berry Melon

    Tired of being bullied? Hmm... that don't make sense. It's already happened, so how is dropping the case going to change or remove all those comments made about her by thousands of people online, or remove her from being referenced in media related articles?
    https://media.tenor.com/images/b00797bafe2ea3b0f18529a2abfe3664/tenor.gif

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Yup. For the rest of his life there will always be people looking at him and thinking: "That man got away with rape". Sad.

  • Coy little wink

    So Nelly is faking this story to get us to watch this dumb azz show basically is what u saying Auntie?

  • CT

    Exactly. And I am going to make one last comment...i believe this chick needed money to finish school. ..and she got it. ..

  • MARCUS

    I think her desire to put it out there. Can you explain why you said what you said.

  • MARCUS

    No now shut up.

  • MARCUS

    The opinion was very stupid you moron!!! God some people are dense.

  • Miss Thang

    So funny. You think every case is supposed to be the same.

  • Miss Thang

    Yep. Another STUPID black man.

  • Miss Thang

    People have already found her identity and have been harassing her. Same thing happened with Michael Jackson's victims. Just because the victims' names aren't published on blogs doesn't mean their names are unknown. We live in the internet age. Any information can be found if one looks hard enough.

  • monique

    But no one knows who she is. If she was raped, how could she just drop the case? Wouldn't you want your accuser arrested? I thought everyone knew that going on someone's tour bus meant sex. I remember in the 90's Busts asked my friend to get on his bus as we walked by, she said no. So, did she just want an autograph? Is she being bullied by his camp, because only they know who she is?

  • Miss Thang

    A rape kit proves if there was forcible entry so it does prove rape.

  • Miss Thang

    If you think no one kniws who she is then you're an idiot.

  • Miss Thang

    His camp including his family and friends and staff know who she is and are harassing her.

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    Then an extra charge for witness tampering and communicating threats could be thrown in ! I just don’t see going so far as to report it then drop it like that

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    Why she reading comments anyway!! No one knows her identity except for the accused and his folks!! Like you expect to be called all kinds of things when you report rape or a crime because that’s the accused defense why allow that to make you not seek justice

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    Not when he is supposedly taking steps to sue her and is asking for a public apology I want to see if he will follow through with it if he does at that point he would have the burden of proof he would have to prove it was consensual and that she lied.

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    Whenever you report a crime rape theft whatever YOU have the burden of proof you have to prove a crime assault or whatever was commuted against you so you all ready should know that you will be called a liar and that your character will be questioned but that don’t mean back down that means go hard to prove your case.

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    It’s not about taking sides MEN have been killed, jailed and beaten behind false accusations when you say you been raped be prepared to prove your case EVERY case not just rape is challenged that don’t mean don’t come forward or don’t proceed with something you started because YOU WILL BE CHALLENGED questioned and called names. If ppl could just press charges and their claims not be investigated there would be a bunch of innocent ppl in jail and in death row WELL more than there already is.

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    I’m going to play devils advocate and say some women can be stupid as well. For example how is getting “tipsy” in the company of men who you don’t know then go off alone leaving your friends behind to accompany him and several other men most likely BIG MEN on a tour bus by yourself safe? Knowing that you are tipsy you wouldn’t be able to fight off anyone and even if you not tipsy you in the company if a very big man and his very big bodyguards and friends. We as women have got to be more careful there is no way to justify doing something like that and late at night like what was her intent ? What did she think they were going to do? Did she think they were going to go read books play cards what was the conversation come on my tour bus or back to my hotel to do what? Drink? Hell we already did that I’m the club where my friends were.

  • the guest

    But to disparage themselves is drastic measures for publicity. It's not right of them to exploit such serious issues for press.

  • StoneColdLady

    How does his family and friends know who she is, if she was just some random from a concert? I thought she said the media was "bullying" her?

  • the guest

    God bless you.
    I like SR blog and I take care to respect opinions. Thank you so much, I find name calling unsettling. Because we're all here just expressing our opinions.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    What witness tampering?

    She said she won't testify. Furthermore Nelly has yet to be charged over a week after he was arrested.

  • free

    With a positive rape kit, and injuries, the DA would probably make a name for himself, esp if she was white. The climate is ripe for this right now.

  • free

    Because this is a part of the concert and he supposedly does it in every city?

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    How is not automatically believing an accuser of sexual assault vilifying the victim?

    Aren't you vilifying the accused by calling the accuser the 'victim'?

  • free

    Then cause he twirled the lil girls hair on stage, in concert, he's a pedophile smh.

  • the guest

    In my humble opinion, Nelly and his team are acting guilty. They handled this wrong if he is indeed innocent. First, he's not denying there was sexual contact. No 45 year old male artist should be entertaining a young woman young enough to be his daughter on his tour bus. What was a superstar tour bus doing parked behind a Walmart? The whole scenario is seedy and suspect. Fame, money, and power are intoxicants commonly used to disarm and lure younger people into dangerous situations. Do I think Nelly is jump out the bushes serial rapist? No. I do think he played himself in this situation and he is blessed to have been able in my opinion to pay off his way out.

  • bemetoo

    for real.. i get it you just being friendly but dont be naive and act like you dont know what a persons interest in when one party is a sought out high celebrity and you are a random nobody

  • Dainese

    If I think no one knows who she is then I'd be just like the rest of the folks in the thread.*

    Fixed that.
    Happy Sunday.

  • Blah Blahhhhh

    It is not the challenge...it is the bullying and threats that they face. Should they be a victim again and get killed for some bs someone else did.. FOH

  • Noirluv45

    Roderick, you're right. I should've said alleged victim. I don't know if I automatically believe the accuser, but I don't automatically dismiss the accuser either. Most people do.

  • Noirluv45

    Thank you and you're welcome. ?

  • Miss Thang

    Threatening a witness not to testify is witness tampering. there is an investigation going on.

  • Noirluv45

    You're right, Ms. D. I agree with you. We've got to take responsible for what we do. It's like leaving your door unlocked and not expecting someone to come in. Sometimes our actions are risky.

  • Noirluv45

    I don't believe the victim should automatically be called a liar. Sometimes rape cannot be proven. Maybe too much time has passed, but that doesn't mean it didn't happen UNLESS I've been proven to be a liar. At least give me the benefit of a doubt. If I say I've been raped, my character should not be called into question. That's what's wrong with the system. Her character is always called into question, but not his. How's that fair? I'm not saying there aren't women who don't scream rape, but when they do, they get vilified, and that should not be the first reaction until she is proven wrong.

    How does a woman go hard to prove her case if she was raped years prior? How can she prove that? Rape is a very traumatic event. It's not easy to go, "Oh, yeah, let me go hard." What about children who are raped? How do that go about "proving" that they've been assaulted? How do they "go hard?"

  • MARCUS

    I understand what you are saying. I think people question it because there have been too many cases where people start throwing around false accusations.

  • MARCUS

    Don't you think its odd how all these women accused Cosby and now Weinstein. Yet nobody else has come forward to accuse Nelly of assault.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Ha,ha,ha!!!

    Keep dreaming. The chick is a gold digger and at best she got paid off and no charges will eve be filed against Nelly.

    At worst she's a liar who has ruined someone's reputation and she has to live with that for the rest of her life.

  • Noirluv45

    Yes. I can see both sides of the equation.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    No but it seems to happen that way, no?

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    She didn't mind getting on the bus with Nelly who was really a complete stranger at the time.

    I will save my sympathy for real victims while this chick crawls back into her hole.

  • Miss Thang

    No. Because in the thousands of cases of sexual assault we are only looking at 3 cases so I don't expect them to have the same pattern. not every person guilty of sexual assault has many victims. The person may only have one victim.

  • Miss Thang

    At worst she is a victim of sexual assault who is now being bullied by strangers such as yourself.

  • Miss Thang

    Not at all.

  • Miss Thang

    there are no perfect victims. There will always be someone who says she shouldn't have been wearing that or she shouldn't have accepted the drink or she shouldn't have gone there, when the blame solely rests with the predator.

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    A therapist and a doctor can easy tell if a CHILD has been molested from the very moment when someone is accused of something their character is already calle into question right then and there with the accusation!! We are talking about law ppl are innocent until proven guilty you can not say oh we should just believe someone because they make a claim!! Rape can be proven even if it was years ago with dates times and a whole lot of other stuff sorry but I disagree with you on this

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    I’m saying if she is alleging that she don’t want to because of being harassed and what not that could be a charge but don’t go and drop your case because of it is what I was saying

  • Guest©

    And stop playing in little girls hair.

  • Guest©

    I thought i was the only one who raised an eyebrow at the age of the alleged victim. Nelly is old enough to be that girls father. Talk about creepy. Even more creepy are the clips I saw from his concerts were he's playing in young girls hair. Like wtf?!?

  • Noirluv45

    Bingo!

  • Noirluv45

    If something happened years ago, dates and times may be blurry. Haven't you heard of countless witnesses to a crime not remembering details or each person seeing what the other didn't see? Some people don't remember what happened yesterday, more or less, what happened years ago (as far as minute details). I never said people should believed because they make a claim. I'm saying they should not automatically be dismissed after making a claim, and that's what happens to many rape victims, hence they don't come forward. Do you think they don't come forward because they want to let the rapist go? If a rape kit wasn't performed, how could a rape be proven? It's the woman's word vs. his. There's no need to be sorry for disagreeing. You have every right to. We'll just agree to disagree. I'm cool with that.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Perfect victims?

    You sure are playing with definitions now.

    The perfect victim means that her background was shady ( she slept around or had accused someone of rape before)

    This woman sounds like a typical groupie.

    From what I have read most women are too traumatized to even go to the hospital for a rape exam much less contact the authorities.

    She sure was clear-minded so I guess she can't claim that she was impaired during the event.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    I'm bullying her by sharing my opinion on a private website?

    Damn you sound desperate.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Ha,ha,ha!!!

    You're so invested that Nelly is guilty that you deny reality.

  • NicoleZee

    You must be on crystal meth or heroin to make a statement like that. Please stay off the drugs. A normal, sane, sober, intelligent person would not sit here and blame the victim, regardless of what she did or where she was at the time of the incident. I take it you've never been brutally raped or had the shit beaten out of you. Well, most victims are afraid to testify in the first place. They already feel that no one will believe them, especially when the rapist is someone rich, powerful, and/or a celebrity. Victims don't want their personal lives and pasts put on display in court, which is why many victims refuse to testify even when they are not being harassed or accepting money.

    Bottom line is women will continue to get blamed when they are raped or beaten by these lowlife pieces of shit. I didn't want to testify either, but in one of my cases I did, which was humiliating. In another case, the prosecutors bullied me and I did not want to testify so I refused, moved away, and never dealt with my attacker or those shitty prosecutors again. There is no justice for victims of sexual assault and domestic violence, period. Nelly is a sick asshole and so is any man who harms a woman in any way or any person that would blame a victim when they need to be blaming these sick men who rape and beat women left and right.

  • NicoleZee

    So she wanted to get raped??? WTF??? Regardless of what she was doing, wearing, or her intentions, NO ONE DESERVES to BE RAPED!!! You are a sick piece of shit that doesn't deserve to breathe. Who raised you??? You should be ashamed of yourself. If my child ever said some dumb shit like that, he would no longer be able to chew or stand upright. Parents please do better and stop raising animals who turn out to be demented and twisted like this POS. Sick.

  • the guest

    This makes sense. But I do think that Bill Cosby and Harvey Weinstein even though they are wrong they are subject to a witch hunt.

  • the guest

    Rape has blurred lines, it does. I believe the sex between Nelly and the victim was consensual but happened in way that can be legally defined as rape. For example, men don't realize that initiating sex with a sleeping woman can be construed as rape even if there was cuddling and intimacy before falling askeep. This is what I think happened to Nelly.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    You just won't consider that she's a liar.

    That shows that you refuse to be objective.
