Nelly has decided to open up about his recent arrest on some very serious allegations. The famous rapper was accused of rape by a woman, who claimed that she was sexually abused by the rapper on his tour bus. The arrest occurred in Auburn, Washington.
The arrest was initially confirmed by the Auburn Police Department, which revealed that Nelly was taken into custody. He was soon released by the police with no charges filed for the moment. After being released from custody, Nelly took to social media to reveal that he was completely innocent and there was actually no reason for him to be taken into custody.
In his social media message, Nelly actually said that he was shocked by the allegations. He claimed that none of the claims were true. “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,” Nelly shared on social media.
In his Twitter message, Nelly also went to apologize to all his close ones for the whole situation. “I do want to apologize to my loved ones for the embarrassment and for putting myself in a situation where I could be victimized by this false and defaming allegation,” he wrote.
Nelly insisted that this whole case was just defaming him, saying that he will pursue all legal options to make sure that he will be cleared of the allegations. Nelly also expressed his belief that his fans know him and are certain that he did nothing wrong. “I also want to thank my fans for their unwavering support. They know me. I assure you I will be vindicated. And I assure you, I will pursue every legal option to address this defaming claim. Thank you,” his social media post added.
This is not the first time when Nelly has been dealing with some problems with the justice. He was previously accused of offences related to drugs usage. This is the first time when such serious allegations are made against Nelly.
