Nelly Arrested For Rape In Washington



Nelly is currently in police custody, accused of raping a woman in Washington.


TMZ reports that the 42-year old rapper, born Cornell Iral Haynes Jr., was picked up early Saturday morning, October 7, after a woman said he raped her on his tour bus at around 3:45 am.


Nelly’s been booked on second degree rape charges 


He was set to perform at a concert Saturday night in Ridgefield, Washington.


Nelly’s lawyer told TMZ, “Nelly is the victim of a completely fabricated allegation. Our initial investigation, clearly establishes the allegation is devoid of credibility and is motivated by greed and vindictiveness. I am confident, once the scurrilous accusation is thoroughly investigated, there will be no charges. Nelly is prepared to pursue all legal avenues to redress any damage caused by this clearly false allegation.”
