Nelly is in big trouble with the law. 

The rapper has reportedly been arrested for allegedly raping a woman according to TMZ

Law enforcement sources tell us, a woman claims she was raped on the rapper’s tour bus in Washington, where he’s been performing. Nelly is on a tour with Florida Georgia Line and they are set to perform Saturday night in Ridgefield, Washington.  

We’re told the alleged rape occurred Saturday morning at around 3:45 AM. We’re told she specifically said Nelly is the one who raped her.

He was booked and charged with second degree rape on Saturday morning. 

Nelly’s lawyer  Scott Rosenblum releassed a statement denying the claims. 

“Nelly is the victim of a completely fabricated allegation,” Rosenblum said 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.”

We will update as more information becomes available.
