Nelly Arrested For Alleged Rape After Explosive Claims

Nelly was arrested over the weekend for allegedly raping a woman on his tour bus, reports TMZ.

It's claimed that the alleged rape took place at about 3.45am on Saturday morning in Washington, where the 42-year-old was due to perform with Florida Georgia Line later that night.

Nelly was charged with second degree rape at about 7am on Saturday and released soon after.

A lawyer for the Dilemma artist released a strongly worded statement just hours later, insisting it was a "completely fabricated allegation."

"Our initial investigation clearly established the allegation is devoid of credibility and is motivated by greed and vindictiveness," Nelly's legal representation said.

"I am confident once the scurrilous accusation is thoroughly investigated, there will be no charges.

"Nelly is prepared to pursue all legal avenues to redress any damage caused by this clearly false allegation."

The rapper took to Twitter to refute the claims.
