Rapper Nelly countersues rape accuser
As promised, rapper Nelly is fighting back and has filed a countersuit against his rape accuser.
Monique Greene is suing Nelly for sexual assault and defamation over a rape that she alleges took place in October of 2017. In Nelly’s countersuit, he maintains that her allegations are false. He insists that the two had consensual sex on his tour bus, and that Greene become upset only after one of his tour performers entered the room and interrupted them.
He describes Greene as “aggressive and disruptive” which led to her being asked to leave. After Greene left the tour bus she called for an Uber and then called police to report the incident resulting in Nelly’s arrest for rape.
Nelly’s counterclaim asserts that due to false allegations made by both Greene and her attorney, he is no longer able to book and promote headlining shows or release and promote upcoming albums. It also notes that Nelly was “forced” to cancel a Washington show, resulting in “substantial monetary losses.”
He’s also filed a motion to strike Greene’s claim he sexually harassed at least 2 other women and wants her defamation suit against him dismissed as well.
The criminal case against the rapper was ultimately dismissed when Greene refused to cooperate with prosecutors.
