A few hours after the news surfaced of the new sexual assault lawsuit filed against Nelly, he is speaking out and denouncing the claims being made. In a statement to PEOPLE, Nelly condemned the woman, who has fled the lawsuit as Jane Doe, for her “baseless allegation,” and accused her of undermining “real claims of sexual abuse/harassment by real victims.”
Nelly says, “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.” Based on the lawsuit filed by the woman, she is claiming that back in 2017 Nelly id some inappropriate thing in her front of her. She also says Nelly invited her to a private room, dropped his underwear as he forced himself on her without consent.
Although she managed to escape, she says Nelly stopped her one last time and threatened that he’d find her. In addition to the claims against Nelly, she also named his girlfriend, Shantel Jackson in the suit for defamation over a statement she made on Twitter suggesting the anonymous woman’s claims were false.
