Scott Rosenblum, who served as the attorney for the rapper, Nelly, said the “It’s Getting Hot In Here” singer would file a lawsuit against his accuser following the reports of her refusal to participate in the investigation. Scott said the “formal close of the investigation” is naturally expected by himself and Nelly.
In a statement to Us Weekly on the 15th of December, Friday, Nelly and his lawyer said they were confident from the very beginning of the investigation that Nelly’s name would eventually be cleared.
Rosenblum stated the investigation showed Nelly was a victim of false allegations without merit or credibility. Also, evidence showed the accuser was “deceptive.”
Additionally, Nelly and Rosenblum have spoken with the King County authorities and are appreciative that they didn’t leave a “stone unturned.”
As you may know, Cornell Iral Haynes Junior, aka, Nelly, came out to defend himself following the allegations that he raped a woman on his tour bus while in Auburn, Washington.
The 42-year-old was touring with the country-pop duo, Florida Georgia Line before the woman accused him of rape. After the police took him into custody, he denied the claims outright without question.
Nelly’s accuser claimed she would not proceed with the charges because she doesn’t have the resources or the time to go against a celebrity.
She and her lawyer, in several words, said our society, unfortunately, is one where a plethora of women need to speak out to indict a man on sexual crimes.
Their statement addressed the cascade of accusations to hit the entertainment industry in the last three months. Most recently, Mario Batali and several others in the restaurant industry have been accused of varying forms of sexual misconduct.
