The woman who claims rapper Nelly raped her on his tour bus has contacted the District Attorney. She is accusing the “Country Grammar” rapper and his attorney of bullying her in the media.
Nelly’s lawyer, Scott Rosenblum, vigorously defended the 42-year-old father-of-4, saying the rapper’s accuser “is motivated by greed and vindictiveness.”
Nelly, whose real name is Cornell Haynes Jr., was arrested early Sunday after the woman called 911 to say she was raped on his tour bus near Auburn, WA, where he performed in concert. Nelly was released Saturday morning without charges.
Attorney Karen Koehler, who is representing the unidentified woman, slammed Nelly and his lawyer for intimidating her client through the media.

“It is morally reprehensible for an accused person and his bully lawyer to issue derogatory and defamatory statements against a young alleged rape victim. It is also criminal — in the State of Washington — when those vicious attacks are issued in the form of threats”
But Rosenblum was unwavering in his support for his client.
“I would suggest rereading the [intimidating a witness] statute,” he told TMZ. “I would further suggest talking to some of the unbiased witnesses. Nelly will continue to respond to her client’s baseless allegations.”
In related news, Nelly is being dragged on social media for his inappropriate behavior with young girls during his concerts.
On at least 2 occasions, Nelly, who is on tour with country music duo Florida Georgia Line, is seen in fan videos serenading girls who appear to be 8-10 years old.
Most disturbing is the way the rapper twirls the girls’ long hair around his finger, while performing his hit song “Over and Over”.
