Two new accusations of sexual assault against Nelly have surfaced in conjunction with an ongoing civil lawsuit against him. University of Washington student Monique Greene is suing Nelly for sexual assault, libel, slander and defamation stemming from an encounter with the singer on his tour bus last October. Monique claims that Nelly brought her onto his tour bus after a concert, raped her and unceremoniously (and literally) kicked her to the curb.
Criminal charges for the incident were dropped when Monique declined to testify, claiming she was intimidated and threatened and thinking her word against his would be dismissed because of his notoriety and fame. According to Pitchfork, the new allegations are being introduced to establish a pattern of behavior in support of Monique’s civil case. Pitchfork reports:
Their testimonies are presented as evidence that Nelly allegedly has displayed a pattern of “[preying] on his selected female fans” in order to sexually assault them.
The two women testifying are referred to as Jane Doe 1 and Jane Doe 2. JD1 claims that Nelly invited her to a VIP section of a club after a concert and “suddenly grabbed her leg and placed his hand under her skirt without consent”. No dilemma here for me. Nelly I, hate you.
JD2 two claims Nelly again used his tour bus a mobile assault vehicle after a show in Essex, England in December of last year.
He allegedly invited Jane Doe 2 and her friends onto his tour bus, and took her into a separate room, where he began masturbating in front of her without her consent. He then grabbed her hand and placed it on his penis, then later pushed her head down to force her into oral sex.
JD2’s account is eerily similar to what Monique claimed happened to her just months before. Monique says that because of the incident she had to drop out of school for a quarter, forfeiting her tuition and delaying her graduation date so she’s seeking damages for that. She’s also asking for damages for “personal damage“, “emotional trauma” and medical expenses.
The suit also seeks an injunction against Nelly “that prohibits him from engaging in sexual assault against female fans after concerts.”
That last stipulation may become moot because people might stop paying actual money to see this dusty ass, toddler-looking, Band-Aid wearing mess do his hits of yesteryear in 2018.
