A woman who accused Nelly of sexual assault is feeling the pressure from the veteran rapper. According to The Blast, the “Country Grammar” architect wants Jane Doe to remove her “cloak of anonymity” and face the consequences of her allegations.
On Thursday (January 24), Nelly filed court documents asking for the Missouri sexual assault lawsuit to be dismissed.
“Without first petitioning the Court to do so, Plaintiff filed her complaint anonymously, standing behind that anonymity as she makes serious allegations that the Complaint makes clear that she is aware will receive public attention,” the statement read.
Jane Doe sued Nelly last November for an alleged sexual assault that took place backstage after a 2017 concert in the U.K. She claims Nelly exposed himself and began masturbating in front of her before allegedly forcing his erect penis inside her mouth.
In addition to her sexual assault allegation, Jane Doe is suing Nelly’s girlfriend, Shantel Jackson, for defamation for negative comments Jackson made on social media as well.
Nelly was also accused of sexual assault by a 21-year-old Washington woman named Monique Greene in October 2017. Although the criminal case against him was dropped after Greene refused to cooperate with police, she sued him for defamation.
Nelly responded with a countersuit, claiming he was being defamed since the two had consensual sex.
Last September, Nelly’s lawyer said both sides agreed to dismiss their suits and no money was exchanged. Greene’s attorney, Karen Koehler, confirmed both parties dismissed the cases but refuted the claim that no money was involved in the settlement.
