Nelly‘s had it up to here with allegations by the attorney for his accuser in the UK assault case … and is now lashing out at her.
The rapper’s firing back at the lawyer for the anonymous Jane Doe … the lawyer who made claims Essex Police engaged in misconduct by treating the alleged victim as a suspect.
Nelly tells TMZ … the lawyer in this case is the same one involved in another sexual assault case against him here in the U.S., and she’s “claiming the police in two different countries ‘won’t help her clients’, ‘are incompetent’ and is consistently painting a picture that I am ‘bullying the police’ in two different countries to not do their job.”
Nelly calls BS, insisting he’s remained quiet and fully cooperative with UK law enforcement’s investigation, adding … “Not only is this attorney continuously damaging my reputation to forge ahead with civil suits to get money, she is doing a severe disservice to women and true victims that need a safe system to report assaults against them.”
He believes the lawyer is going to the media for her own personal gain, and it’s only doing harm to real victims by creating an idea that cops won’t have their backs.
We broke the story … Jane Doe’s attorney wrote a letter blasting the lead detective in the UK criminal case and claiming cops are treating her client unfairly, probably because they’re intimidated by Nelly’s legal team. She also says the Essex Police are completely incompetent.
Jane Doe has accused Nelly of masturbating in front of her and forcing his penis in her mouth after one his concerts in 2017. An investigation was launched after she filed a suit against him.
Nelly has denied the allegations.
We reached out to Jane Doe’s lawyer, who says, “The smear statement written by Nelly’s PR team is Exhibit A as to why women who claim sexual assault against a celebrity will not come forward … Nelly did not give a statement for over an entire year despite his attorneys being contacted by Essex Police.”
The attorney continues, “Since when would police in the US wait more than a year to talk to a suspect in a full blown sexual assault investigation? That would be never.”
