Hip hop star, Nelly arrested for rape

Nelly who was earlier arrested for rape has been released

American rapper, Nelly has been arrested over rape allegations.

The Dilemma star who was a fan favorite in the early 2000s was nabbed following a rape accusation by a woman who claimed she was molested inside the rapper’s tour bus after a concert. Police sources say the woman called the emergency number and reported a case of sexual assault which led to the arrest.

The music star has however denied the allegation saying he has no case to answer.  Nelly took to Twitter to clear the air while revealing that he wasn’t charged for anything and he was released without bail because there is no case.

“I have not been charged… therefore no bail was required.”

“I was released, pending further investigation,” he shared on Twitter.

The 42-year-old further expressed his disappointment saying that he is “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.”
