On Saturday Nelly was arrested and charged with second-degree rape following an incident that occurred on the “Hot In Herre” rapper’s tour bus in Auburn, Washington.

Today, Nelly released this statement: 

"Let me say that I am beyond shocked that I have been targeted with this false allegation," the rapper tweeted. "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. I do want to apologize to my loved ones for the embarrassment and for putting myself in a situation where I could be victimized by this false and defaming allegation. I also want to thank my fans for their unwavering support. They know me. I assure you I will be vindicated. And I assure you, I will pursue every legal option to address this defaming claim."

    Why is he assumed guilty? Simply because he is a rapper? Let’s wait o hear both sides, despite the fact he was released without charges.

    Akon just made a statement actually in support of Nelly echoing my thoughts. He said: "I don't seeing Nelly forcing no one --- it doesn't make sense. We are targets on every level and they will set up a charge just to force us to settle out"

    It's something like 95% of rape and sexual assault accusations are true, as women really have nothing to gain and everything to lose with coming forward - especially with high-profile cases. I'll be interested to see the evidence, but like to always keep in mind how brave it is for women to speak up, and how little ulterior motive there typically is.

      I met Nelly and I really don't believe the allegations. I hate to say this as a woman but I do think a woman can have ulterior motives when a celebrity is involved and it can be fame or money.

    Thank you for bringing this to my attention! I feel that although it seems likely that this man is guilty, it is important to hear the woman's evidence and side of the story for a fair trial. It seems odd to me that the woman's evidence hasn't been stated in any article. This makes me feel sad that the victim is not prioritized above the rapper. Have you heard anything?
