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.

Rich The Kid Introduces His New Group, 83 Babies With "No Cap" Video

Back in 2013, Coach K of Quality Control brought a buzzin' rap trio through to the VIBE offices. Migos' "Fight Night" was a club hit and "Versace" with Drake was ruling the game. He announced Quavo and Takeoff, but the third member looked different from the pics we saw previously. "This is Rich The Kid," he stated calmly. "He's rolls with us." Rich wasn't known heavily at that point, but what we determined by his easy going nature and ability to network was this kid is a star, or soon will be.

The smartest thing about that whole scene was how Coach K did a great press run for the Migos as a trio, even with Offset locked up at the time. Having Rich The Kid roll with them accomplished the mission of keeping the Migos' look as a trio annnnd establishing another new artist at the same time. As the relationship didn't materialize as Rich being on Quality Control, it provided the youngin' valuable knowledge on the game and how to do roll outs and such. Thus, Rich The Kid's own Rich Forever Music label being born a few years ago. With enormous success on his own with hits and tours under his belt, the New York native turned Georgia repper started signing up talent. Most notable acts Famous Dex and Jay Critch signed with Rich bolstering his start up company (established in 2016) to fast recognition.

Now in the same way that Rich was introduced to VIBE, 83 Babies are following suit. A few months ago the North Carolina trio, with strikingly similar sounds to Migos', came through the office with a visiting Rich The Kid, who was playing our team some of his unreleased album cuts. We got a chance to kick it with Lil Tony, Set It Off and Young Boss Tevo for a sec. With their minds taking in the atmosphere, we learned that they were in a tug-of-war state as various labels were vying for their talent. Judging from the Rich announcement of 83 Babies being signed to Rich Forever Music this past March, the fellas made their choice.

With co-signs from the Migos and many others, 83 Babies have a clear shot at success. The trap rap "No Cap" single and video finds the group stating just who they are in their music, real dudes that happen to rhyme. Slated to open up on Rich The Kid's "The World Is Yours 2" tour, the three MCs will learn about traveling the country for fans that have never seen you up close. We are sure they are more than ready.

Watch their newest video above.

The 31-year-old mother of two went on to address a recent altercation with her hairdresser, though she wasn’t able to go too deeply into detail for legal reasons. Later in the interview she spoke about Tyga, her relationship with Rob Kardashian and his family, getting Future’s name tattooed on her hand, and The Real Black Chyna, a docuseries airing on the Zues Network that will show her “everyday life.”

Federal Prosecutors Reportedly Claim Kodak Black Is A Danger To Society

Kodak Black entered a not guilty plea Wednesday (May 15) in response to federal weapons charges stemming from his latest arrest, but prosecutors in the case are reportedly trying to keep him in jail arguing that he’s a potentially dangerous given his lengthy criminal history.

According to initial reports, the 21-year-old rapper was granted release on $550,000 bond with house arrest, and his $600,000 mansion was used as collateral. However, prosecutors filed documents claiming that the Florida native should remain locked up because he is likely to flee and is known to disregard probation restrictions, TMZ reports.

During a court hearing earlier this week prosecutors told the judge that, “Wherever he goes there’s going to be guns, drugs and shootings.”

Kodak’s lawyer, Bradford Cohen, pointed out that his current arrest was related to “paperwork” as he allegedly lied on gun applications. Furthermore, Cohen noted that if authorities truly felt that his client was a danger to society than he should have been arrested in January, when he filled out the paperwork.

Miami-Dade police arrested Kodak on the way to the Rolling Loud Miami Festival last weekend. He was also arrested last month on drug and gun charges at the Canadian border.

Kodak, whose birth name is Dieuson Octave but legally changed his name to Bill Kapri, was out on bail for charges in South Carolina where he is accused of sexually assaulting a high school student in 2016. His bail could be revoked given the new weapons charges. If convicted in the rape case he faces up to 30 years.
