Nelly files countersuit against rape accuser
Rapper Nelly has filed a countersuit against his rape accuser after she filed a lawsuit for both sexual assault and defamation of character.
Last December, the 42-year-old rapper, whose given name is Cornell Iral Haynes Jr, had his court case closed by authorities after his 21-year-old accuser, who had alleged the star sexually assaulted her on his tour bus in Seattle, refused to testify against him.
However, Monique Greene later filed a lawsuit against the star for both sexual assault and defamation of character and now Nelly has filed his own countersuit
According to tmz.com, he and Greene had consensual sex on his tour bus but he asked her to leave after she became “aggressive and disruptive” when a back-up dancer entered the room to use the bathroom.
He has filed a motion to have her defamation suit against him dismissed.
