Nelly Facing New Lawsuit Alleging Sexual Assault

Nelly is being sued for allegedly sexually assaulting a woman following a concert in England last year.

The woman — identified in the lawsuit only as Jane Doe — previously detailed her allegations against the rapper as part of a different lawsuit filed against Nelly last year.

According to court documents filed on November 14 and obtained by The Blast, Jane Doe says that in December 2017, she attended Nelly’s show in Essex, England with a few girlfriends. They paid money to get a photo taken with the rapper.

She says when she got to Nelly, he asked her to stay behind to talk. Jane Doe says he eventually asked her to come to his dressing room and allowed her girlfriends to tag along.

According to Jane Doe, Nelly then asked her to go with him into to a small room next door. Once inside the room, Jane Doe says, Nelly closed the door, stood in front of it, and dropped his trousers. She says she told him to pull his trousers up. Jane Doe claims Nelly started masturbating and said, ‘You want this dick don’t you?’”

She claims she continued to reject him and Nelly “put his hands down Jane Doe’s top and tried to pull it off. This was without her consent.”

Jane Doe says she tried to diffuse the situation by explaining she has a spouse and kids, but Nelly told her “that didn’t matter.” Eventually, she says Nelly pulled up his pants and started walking towards her.

The lawsuit goes on to say, “Jane Doe is 4’11 and petite. As he approached her she tried to move back but there was nowhere she could go. He dropped his trousers and said he really wanted her. Defendant Nelly began to masturbate again. He told her she wanted him. Jane Doe repeated that she did not. Defendant Nelly tried to kiss Jane Doe – two times. He said he wanted ‘to come in your mouth and all over you.’ Jane Doe continued to evade and refuse him.”

It continues, “Defendant Nelly then grabbed Jane Doe’s hand and placed it on his penis. She pulled her hand away and told him generally the following: That’s enough. Who the f**k do you think you are. Look mate I had a really nice time at the concert. You may have sold records and have a more quid in your bank than I do. But this doesn’t make you any more special than me. Pull your trousers up back up and f*ck off.”

Her tone seemed to upset Nelly and she claims Nelly clenched his fist and his whole demeanor completely changed. She claims, “He got a look on his face that scared Jane Doe. She looked around and didn’t know how to get out of the room. She said, ‘Are you going to hit me?’ He responded, ‘No I’m just frustrated, I’m not used to not getting my way, just do it.'”

“And then Defendant Nelly put his right hand on the back of her head and his left hand on her shoulder and forced her head down pushing his erect penis into her mouth. This constituted sexual assault,” the lawsuit claims. “Jane Doe was in utter shock. Once he thought he had her in position, Defendant Nelly released her shoulder. Jane Doe jumped back, twisted and fell backwards into the shower curtain. She was able to scramble out of the room.”

After gathering her friends, Jane Doe says she began to leave the room when Nelly stopped her.

Jane Doe claims Nelly reached out and pulled her and told her in a threatening manner, “I will find you.”

Jane Doe says she never went to the police with what happened because she felt no one would believe her. She eventually spoke to police after they reached out to her.

In addition to her sexual assault claim, Jane Doe is also suing Nelly’s girlfriend, Shantel Jackson, for defamation because of comments she made on social media.

Jane Doe is seeking unspecified damages.

The Blast reached out to Nelly for comment — so far, no word back.
