Nelly Arrested for Rape

Nelly’s rape accuser is back: Hostess who dropped criminal charges against rapper sues him for defamation, sexual assault

A woman who accused rapper and singer Nelly of rape earlier this year filed a defamation and sexual assault lawsuit against him, despite dropping criminal charges against him.

TMZ reports that on Oct. 7, Monique Greene, a hostess at a Seattle bar, was “off of the clock” and drinking alcohol with Nelly and his crew, when he invited her to an afterparty. She said she agreed and left with him in an SUV, but the “afterparty” ended up being in a Walmart parking lot where the rapper’s tourbus was parked.

Court documents indicate that Greene boarded the bus with Nelly and walked towards his bedroom, where he started masturbating. She then claimed Nelly held her against her will and started sexually assaulted her. She said she tried to stop him by insisting he put on a condom, but he reportedly refused and continued to assault her. Green said at that point, she started screaming. One of Nelly’s entourage members pushed her off the bus, while Nelly allegedly threw $100 and told her to leave, according to the lawsuit.

Green asserted that as she stood in the parking lot, Nelly started teasing and taunting her. While waiting on an Uber ride, Green called 911 and reported the alleged incident. Authorities arrested Nelly and charged him with second degree rape. Grace later dropped the charges after claiming she couldn’t “stand up against a celebrity and that the criminal system would fail her.”

Green later went to a local hospital where she completed a rape kit, then decided to pursue civil charges against the rapper. Nelly said the allegations were false and Green simply wanted “money, fame and notoriety.” He now plans to countersue.
