Nelly Settles Sexual Harassment Lawsuit Filed By British Woman

The sexual assault case against St. Louis rapper Nelly has finally reached an agreement to settle out of court with his accuser.

What We Know:

  • The “Hot in Here” rapper known as Nelly has reached a settlement in the accusation of sexually abusing a woman at a concert in the UK back in 2017.
  • The woman advised that “he masturbated in front of her and then and had her perform oral sex on him. The British woman filed a lawsuit against Nelly, but also stated that his longtime girlfriend, Shantel Jackson, took to social media to defame her”.
  • The rapper declined any wrongdoing and was released from custody without charges. In a statement Nelly said, “I’ve been quiet for some time. But these baseless allegations hurt more than just me. The truth will come out, and I will be vindicated. These types of false allegations undermine real claims of sexual abuse/harassment that wasn’t done by me”.
  • The accuser declined to work with police, authorities, and prosecutors with the investigation and decided not to file charges against the rapper.

Nelly previously settled a similar lawsuit in September 2018 filed by another lady that said that he raped her while he was on tour in Seattle.
