Rapper Nelly Sued for Sexual Assault After U.K. Concert

Nelly is being sued by a woman who claims she was sexually assaulted by him after a December 2017 concert in England, TMZ reports. The woman, who filed the lawsuit anonymously, reportedly claims the rapper “masturbated in front of her multiple times” after he told her to stay behind after a concert meet-and-greet in Essex. In court documents, she claims she rebuffed the rapper several times but he would not stop his sexual advances. He also allegedly told her he “wanted to ejaculate on her” and then “forced his penis into her mouth” before the fled the room. The woman is also reportedly suing Nelly’s girlfriend, Shantel Jackson, who called her a liar on Twitter. Essex police reportedly launched an investigation into the matter earlier this year. “The truth will come out, and I will be vindicated. These types of false allegations undermine real claims of sexual abuse/harassment by real victims,” Nelly told TMZ. “I do NOT plan on walking away quietly. I have to speak up for my family and for the real victims strong enough to come forward and face people that have actually assaulted them.” The rapper also reportedly settled a lawsuit with a woman in September after she accused him of raping her on his tour bus late last year.
