A woman accusing Nelly of rape is now looking to drop the case against the rapper.
According to TMZ, her attorney Karen Koehler says the woman asked the Auburn Police Department to “put a halt to the criminal investigation of [Nelly]. She will not testify further in a criminal proceeding against him.”
Koehler says the young woman feels the system has failed her and she can’t stand up to a celebrity. “Who will believe her. People are saying horrible things already. She cannot handle this. She is about to break.”
Nelly responded through his own lawyer and is now asking for a public apology from the woman, and may open up a lawsuit against her.
