Nelly Filmed Being ‘Creepy’ On Stage With Children
Concerning videos making the rounds online over the weekend are causing concern, as rapper Nelly was filmed being ‘inappropriate’ and ‘creepy’ with children.
The videos come just hours are Nelly’s arrest for allegedly assaulting a woman on his tour bus.
The 42-year-old was arrested by police in Washington state, after a woman called 911 to report an alleged assault that took place on the rapper’s tour bus.
He was taken into custody around 1am on Sunday morning, but has since been released.
Now, a video of him on stage recently with a young girl has emerged, and sees the rapper singing to, ‘sweet-talking’ and stroking the hair of a young girl, who fans say looks ‘frightened.
“I appreciate you being here tonight, can I do that?” Nelly asks, as music starts playing.
“How you doing? You okay? Have you started school already? Do you like your teacher?” he continues, clearly aware of her age.
“Come here, stand right here — face me.”
As she faces the rapper, he starts to twirl and twist her hair in his hands with their faces nearly touching while he sings.
Another twitter user posted a similar video while at another concert in Montana.
In a similar act, Nelly sings the same song to another very young girl as members of the audience cheer as he twists her hair around his fingers. People were not happy.
Referencing the alleged assault, Nelly took to twitter to explain his disbelief at the accusations against him and claim his innocence.
‘Let me say that I am beyond shocked that I have been targeted with this false allegation. 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.'
