Update: Nelly Released Without Charges After Rape Arrest

Update: 

USA Today is reporting that Nelly was released on Saturday (Oct. 7) without being charged following his rape arrest in Auburn, Wa.

His manager, Juliette Harris, said in an email that he will not make Saturday’s scheduled tour stop in Ridgefield, Wash., where he was due to play a show with country duo Florida Georgia Line.

Nelly took to Twitter to address the allegations.


Multi-platinum selling rapper Nelly was arrested for sexual assault in Washington after a woman on his tour bus called authorities claiming she was raped.

The “County Grammar” rapper, who is on tour with Florida Georgia Line, was booked this morning on charges of second-degree rape stemming from an alleged assault that took place after his performance at the White River Amphitheater in Auburn, Wa. Friday night.

Nelly reportedly met the woman in Seattle after the show and brought her back to the bus, according to Q13 reporter Brandi Kruse.

Auburn police say the woman contacted them around 3:45 am to report the assault.

Nelly was arrested and booked into the SCORE jail in Des Moines for rape in the second degree.

His attorney, Scott Rosenblum, told the Daily News that he is “the victim of a completely fabricated allegation.”

“Our initial investigation, clearly establishes, this allegation is devoid of credibility and is motivated by greed and vindictiveness,” he told The News in a statement. “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.”

Stocker says Nelly’s in jail and will have his first appearance before a judge “at some point.”
