Rapper Nelly arrested for alleged Sexual Assault

Rapper Nelly has been arrested after a woman accused him of raping her on his tour bus following a concert near Seattle.

Police in Auburn said they arrested the artist after a woman called emergency services at 03:48 (07:48 GMT) to report a sex assault.

Nelly, whose real name is Cornell Iral Haynes Jr, was taken into custody on a second-degree rape charge.

In a statement, his lawyer described the allegation as “completely fabricated”.

“Our initial investigation clearly establishes this allegation is devoid of credibility and is motivated by greed and vindictiveness,” Scott Rosenblum said in a statement.
Nelly is best known for his US number one hits “Hot in here” and “Dilemma”, but has not released new music for a number of years.

In 2015 he was arrested on felony charges after police found drugs and guns on board his tour bus.
The 42-year-old is currently on tour with the Backstreet Boys and Florida Georgia Line and performed in Auburn on Friday night.

The bus was parked near a local Walmart at the time of the alleged incident. A police statement said they were continuing to investigate.
Nelly was due to perform on the Smooth Stadium Tour in Ridgefield near Portland on Saturday evening.
