Nelly Faces Two New Accusations Of Sexual Assault

 One new accuser claims Nelly stuck his hand up her dress at a concert after party in June 2016. 

Two more women have accused Nelly of sexual assault in a lawsuit filed against the artist by Monique Greene, a college student who claims Nelly, born Cornell Hanes Jr., raped her on his tour bus after a concert in Washington in October. One new accuser claims Nelly stuck his hand up her dress at a concert after party in June 2016. The second woman claims Nelly masturbated in front of her in a dressing room after a show in December 2017 and forcibly grabbed her head in an attempt to demand oral sex.

Both allegations are included in an amended complaint filed Monday  (Jan. 22) by Greene’s attorney Karen Koehler. Greene is seeking damages for defamation and emotional trauma. She has also requested an injunction against “Nelly (and his penis)” that prohibits him from sexually assaulting female fans in the future. The lawsuit attributes the new accusations to Jane Doe 1 and Jane Doe 2 under a section titled “Evidence of other acts of sexual assault.” Nelly has a “pattern of conduct” that demonstrates he “preyed upon his selected female fans,” the lawsuit argues.

Jane Doe 1 is a married mother and U.S. military member who alleges Nelly assaulted her after a concert in June 2016 in the United Kingdom. She and a friend met Nelly in a VIP area after the show. After hanging out for around two hours, Nelly allegedly brought Doe and her friend to an after party, where Doe 1 claims this happened, according to the complaint:

Defendant Nelly was sitting on a desk/ledge looking down at Jane Doe 1, when he said “let me see it.”

Jane Doe 1 was shocked and asked “what?” She realized then that he expected to have sex with her. She was disappointed in him and disgusted. She said, “I thought we were too cool for this.”

Defendant Nelly asked if she had “a boo” and she flashed her wedding ring at him. They had been talking about military life, family, and he already knew that she was married.

Defendant Nelly got off the table ledge and came close to her. He placed his hand on her leg, rubbed it and put his hand up her dress. This was done without Jane Doe 1’s consent.

Jane Doe 2 is a mother of three in a long-term relationship who alleges Nelly assaulted her on December 5, 2017 after a concert at Cliffs Pavilion in Essex, England. She met Nelly while taking a photo with him after the show. Nelly invited her and several friends to come to his dressing room. Nelly allegedly invited Doe 2 to the room next door, where Doe 2 claims Nelly dropped his trousers, started masturbating, tried to remove her top, and told her, “You want this d*ck don’t you.”

Doe 2 protested and backed away. Nelly allegedly pulled up his pants, walked towards her, and again dropped his pants and started masturbating. Nelly allegedly tried to kiss Doe 2 twice, told her he wanted “to come in your mouth and all over you,” and placed her hand on his penis. “That’s enough. Who the fuck do you think you are,” the woman told him. “Pull your trousers up back up and f*ck off.”

According to the complaint, Nelly clenched his fist, and Doe 2 asked him whether he planned to hit her. He allegedly replied no, then attempted to force her to perform oral sex:

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. Jane Doe 2 was in utter shock. Once he thought he had her in position, Defendant Nelly released her shoulder. Jane Doe 2 jumped back, twisted and fell backwards into the shower curtain. She was able to scramble out of the room. As she exited Defendant Nelly yelled, “cunt!”

The Auburn police department in Washington arrested Nelly after Greene reported her alleged assault in October. Prosecutors ultimately dropped a second-degree rape charge after Greene stopped cooperating with the investigation. Greene attributed the decision to public scrutiny.

Nelly and his attorney Scott Rosenblum have denied Greene’s allegations and threatened to sue her in response. “This type of reckless false allegation cannot be tolerated as it is an affront to the real survivors of sexual assault,” Rosenblum said in December.

'New York Times' And FX Team For Breonna Taylor Documentary

The New York Times is producing a Breonna Taylor documentary, set to air on FX and Hulu later this year. Taylor’s story will be the focus of an installment of The New York Times Presents, a 10-episode Friday-night series, with each episode covering a different topic.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, NYT writer Rukmini Callimachi and director Yoruba Richen will explore Taylor’s story, including the investigation into her death.

The 26-year-old EMT was shot and killed in March by Louisville Metro Police officers while sleeping in her apartment. LMP Sgt. Jonathan Mattingly, officer Myles Cosgrove, and Brett Hankison, have yet to be charged or arrested for killing Taylor. Hankison was fired from the police department last month.

The no-knock warrant that police claim they were executing at the time of the fatal shooting, was a part of a larger gentrification plan, lawyers for Taylor’s family argued in a legal complaint filed last week in connection with an ongoing lawsuit against the officers.

Taylor had no criminal history. According to the legal papers, narcotics investigators were “deliberately misled”  to her home by a police squad. A spokesperson for Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer has denied the allegations.

While it’s unclear when Taylor’s story will be featured on The New York Times Presents, the first episode in the series, premieres on Friday (July 10). The episode covers the doctors and nurses working in New York at the height of the COVID-19 outbreak. Episode two, which follows 24-year-old recording artist, Dominic Fike, premieres on Friday, August 7.

Young Thug Blasts Pusha T For Dissing Drake On Leaked Pop Smoke Song

Young Thug isn’t mincing words when it comes to his opinion on Pusha T dissing Drake on a leaked song that was set to appear on Pop Smoke’s posthumous album, Shoot for the Stars, Aim for the Moon.

After the song, “Paranoia,” surfaced online this past weekend, Thugger made it clear that he didn’t know King Push was going to diss Drake on the track, which features him and Gunna.

“I don’t respect the Pusha T verse on the song with me and Gunna [because] I don’t have [nothing] to do with ya’ll beef nor does Gunna, and if I knew that was about him I would’ve made changes on our behalf..the rapper s**t so gay,” Thugger wrote on his Instagram Story early Tuesday (July 7).

“Don’t feel bad, NOBODY knew what the verse was [about],” Pusha responded in one of multiple posts accusing Drake of snitching to the record label to get the song pulled from Pop Smoke's album. “The label heads that stopped it didn’t even know. They ONLY ASSUME because HE [Drake] TOLD them! The same way HE TOLD [about] the Ross ‘Maybach 6’ verse. And if HE’LL TELL record executives [about] rap verses, God only knows what else HE’LL TELL! I don’t deal in police work, police rappers or police n**gas!!!!"

AYO PUSHA T IS SNAPPINNN ON YOUNG THUG RIGHT NOW 😭😭😭 pic.twitter.com/3VHgeg9xFp

Thugger went back on Instagram and blasted Pusha for having a “weak” verse.

“First of all your verse is 7 days…that muthafucka’ weak,” he said. “Second of all, you already went crazy the first time...it an’t nothing but a sucka [move]... going on double takes, triple takes, and quadruple takes. You should’ve just got all of it out when you put the first song out.

“You didn’t even have to do all that. You just felt like you wasn’t gonna get enough views on your own s**t so you came and put some bulls**t on a n**gga' who’s resting in peace’s music. Trying to f**k up a n**ga' a whole vibe. Why the f**k you ain’t do that s**t on your own song?” ”

On “Paranoia,” the Virginia MC goes at Drake for making “empty threats,” and his tendency to rap in different accents.

“You know reality bites, it’s chess, not checkers,” raps Pusha. “Those empty threats only sound good on your records/If the patois is not followed by a Blocka/It’s like Marked for Death Screwface, without the choppa/Let ’em rush the stage when you made like Sinatra/Only to hide the blade flyin’ back through LaGuardia/I might even buy a home out in Mississauga [Canada].”

Pusha previously dissed Drake on 2018’s , “The Story of Adidon,” where he revealed to the world that the Toronto rapper had a son. Drake later admitted that he had a son on the track “Emotionless” off his Scorpion album.
