AUBURN, WA – The story of the woman who was al­legedly raped by Nelly has emerged in a new re­port by TMZ.

The al­leged vic­tim is a 21-year-old Seat­tle res­i­dent who claims to have met Nelly at a club. She and some friends were re­port­edly drink­ing at his ta­ble, got “tipsy” and left with Nelly’s crew for an after party.

The woman says she was then taken to Nelly’s tour bus where he tried to have sex with her de­spite her ob­jec­tions. Ac­cord­ing to the story, Nelly told her to “shut up” and said he wanted to have sex with­out a con­dom. She re­fused but he did so any­way.

After the al­leged rape took place, she claims Nelly of­fered her money. When she turned down the of­fer, an­other woman ap­proached and told her, “You gotta go.” This uniden­ti­fied as­so­ciate of Nelly kicked her off the tour bus and tossed $100 at her.

Nelly’s lawyer, Scott Rosen­blum, said his client’s accuser has “zero cred­i­bil­ity” and is mak­ing a “dan­ger­ous, fraud­u­lent al­le­ga­tion.”

“It does not sur­prise me that she wanted to have her story pub­li­cized,” he told TMZ. “That is play­book 101 of a per­son with an agenda and clearly she has one. The agenda is money, fame and no­to­ri­ety.”

After be­ing ar­rested for an al­leged rape on Satur­day morn­ing (Oc­to­ber 7), Nelly has been re­leased with­out charges.

The St. Louis rap­per’s lawyer Scott Rosen­blum and man­ager Juliette Har­ris con­firmed his re­lease to USA To­day. Nelly took to Twit­ter to deny the rape ac­cu­sa­tions in a se­ries of tweets.

“Let me say that I am be­yond shocked that I have been tar­geted with this false al­le­ga­tion,” he wrote. “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,” he con­tin­ued. “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. Thank you.” Fol­low­ing Nelly’s ar­rest for an al­leged rape on Satur­day morn­ing (Oc­to­ber 7), the 42-year-old rap­per’s lawyer Scott Rosen­blum has de­nied the in­ci­dent.

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

Nelly was booked into the SCORE Jail in Des Moines by Auburn Po­lice on charges of sec­ond de­gree rape, ac­cord­ing to Q13 Fox News. The SCORE Jail in­mate ros­ter cur­rently doesn’t have a Cor­nell Iral Hayens, Jr. — Nelly’s real name — in its sys­tem.
