Nelly

Last fall, St. Louis rapper Nelly was accused of sexually abusing a woman on his tour bus. The “Country Grammar” star was arrested on second-degree rape charges just hours after the alleged incident took place.

Nelly immediately asserted his innocence, tweeting, “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.”

Two months later, the case was dropped, with The King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office declining to file charges against the rapper after the accuser told investigators she did not want to assist in the prosecution or investigation, according to TMZ.

“Police responded to and investigated a sexual assault allegation involving Mr. Haynes,” a statement from the King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office, obtained by E! News, read. “However, within days of her initial report to police, the complainant, through her attorney, informed investigators from the Auburn police department that she did not wish to assist in prosecution or the investigation of Mr. Haynes.”

While the case has been dismissed, previously confidential evidence, including photos and video from the night in question, have been released.

According to police documents obtained by The Jasmine Brand, the Midwestern MC – who is currently dating Platinum Life star Shantel Jackson – admitted to having consensual and unprotected sex with his accuser, telling police they had vaginal and oral sex without a condom. He believed the woman only got upset because she thought he was involved with one of his dancers, who was also on the bus at the time.
