The woman who accused Nelly of rape claims the “Hot in Herre” singer forced her to have sex without a condom and offered to pay her after their encounter, according to TMZ.
The 42-year-old hip-hop star was arrestedSaturday morning in Washington after a woman claimed he raped her on his tour bus as it sat in a Walmart parking lot in Auburn.
Though the rapper – who was booked for “investigation of rape” in the second degree and released from custody – has vehemently denied all allegations, TMZ reported additional details of the alleged encounter, and identified the woman as a 21-year-old Seattle resident.
According to the gossip site, the woman claims she met the star – real name Cornell Iral Haynes Jr. – at a club, and was “tipsy” when she was invited to an after-party and subsequently taken to his tour bus.
There, she says, he attempted to have sex with her, and when she denied him consent, she claims he told her to “shut up” and expressed his desire to sleep with her without a condom.
The woman also claims that once he was done forcing the sexual encounter, Nelly offered her money, which she declined, and was then kicked off the bus by a woman who tossed $100 her way, according to TMZ.
Nelly’s lawyer, Scott Rosenblum, dismissed the woman’s claims as a ploy to gain money and attention.

“It does not surprise me that she wanted to have her story publicized,” he told TMZ. “That is playbook 101 of a person with an agenda and clearly she has one. The agenda is money, fame and notoriety. She’s a person who is making a dangerous, fraudulent allegation to accomplish her own goals.”
Rosenblum added that he currently has an investigator on the case, and plans to use “objective evidence and unbiased witnesses” to prove Nelly’s accuser wrong.
Nelly himself denied all allegations of rape against him Saturday night on Twitter.
“Let me say that I am beyond shocked that I have been targeted with this false allegation. I am completely innocent. I am confident that once the facts are looked at, it will be very clear that I am the victim of a false allegation,” he wrote in a lengthy thread.
“I assure you I will be vindicated. And I assure you, I will pursue every legal option to address this defaming claim,” he wrote.
