Nelly Sexual Assault Lawsuit Settled and Dismissed

The lawsuit against Nelly accusing the rapper of sexual assault has been dismissed.

According to court records, the lawsuit was dismissed earlier this week with prejudice … meaning Nelly’s accuser, Monique Greene, cannot re-file the case at a later date.

Nelly’s lawyer, Scott Rosenblum, tells The Blast, “The lawsuit with Nelly and accuser has been dropped. Both parties have mutually agreed to drop the lawsuit. No settlement or money changed hands.”

However, Greene’s attorney, Karen Koehler, is refuting Nelly’s statement and says the information about no money changing hands is “false.”

A source close to Greene tells The Blast that she “just wanted this to be done with.” the ordeal and “wants to get on with her life.”

Monique Greene claimed Nelly sexually assaulted her on his tour bus in October 2017. The rapper was never prosecuted, but Greene filed a lawsuit instead.

Greene decided to stop cooperating with officials after claiming the pressure and harassment of publicly accusing Nelly of rape was too much to handle.  She refused to testify against the star, and prosecutors were eventually left with no choice but to drop the charges.

The “Dilemma” singer counter-sued Greene for defamation after she sued him for sexual assault and defamation.
