Following Nelly’s arrest for an alleged rape on Saturday morning (October 7), the 42-year-old rapper’s lawyer Scott Rosenblum has denied the incident.
“Nelly is the victim of a completely fabricated allegation,” Rosenblum said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter. “Our initial investigation clearly establishes this allegation is devoid of credibility and is motivated by greed and vindictiveness. I am confident, once this scurrilous accusation is thoroughly investigated, there will be no charges. Nelly is prepared to address and pursue all legal avenues to redress any damage caused by this clearly false allegation.”
Nelly was booked into the SCORE Jail in Des Moines by Auburn Police on charges of second degree rape, according to Q13 Fox News. The SCORE Jail inmate roster currently doesn’t have a Cornell Iral Hayens, Jr. — Nelly’s real name — in its system.
