To be absolutely clear. I have not been charged with a crime therefore no bail was required. I was released , pending further investigation.
Nelly’s lawyer, Scott Rosenblum, speaking to USA Today, said he had been released without charge by the police.
“Nelly is the victim of a completely fabricated allegation,” Rosenblum said.
Nelly is the victim of a completely fabricated allegation.
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.
