Nelly’s Rape Accuser Sues For Defamation

The woman who accused rapper Nelly of rape is taking him to civil court.

Nelly was arrested in Washington in October (17) after an unnamed woman told police officials he had sexually assaulted her on his tour bus.

The alleged victim was subsequently identified as Monique Greene, but she declined to testify and press charges against the hip-hop star, resulting in King County prosecutors officially dropping the case last week.

Nelly, who vehemently denied the accusations, then announced plans to sue Greene, but she has since beaten him to the courthouse after filing documents for defamation and sexual assault, according to TMZ.com.

In the paperwork, Greene claims she had been hanging out with Nelly at the Seattle club where she was employed as a hostess on the night of his performance on 6 October (17), although she wasn’t working at the time of their supposed encounter.

She alleges Nelly invited her to an afterparty on his tour bus, and when she boarded, she headed straight to the back of the vehicle, where the rapper’s bedroom was located. She sat on the bed, where Nelly joined her and purportedly began masturbating.

Greene maintains the star then forced her to have sex and reportedly refused her pleas for him to wear a condom, and when it was all over, she screamed to be let off the bus.

A member of Nelly’s entourage is said to have pushed her off the vehicle, with the rapper allegedly throwing a $100 (£75) bill her way and bidding her “bye bye”.

Greene called the police over the incident and was taken to a medical centre for treatment, while Nelly was arrested on suspicion of second degree rape.

She also defends her decision not to follow through with the criminal charges in her lawsuit, expressing concerns that she wouldn’t be able to “stand up against a celebrity and that the criminal system would fail her”, and accuses Nelly’s representatives of targeting her in a smear campaign, claiming she was only interested in “money, fame and notoriety”.

Greene is suing for undisclosed damages.

Nelly has yet to respond to the suit, but he had been preparing to take her to court in an effort to begin “restoring his reputation”.
