Nelly's Rape Accuser Wants to Drop Criminal Investigation

The woman who accused Nelly of rape wants to drop the criminal investigation against the rapper as she does not want the public scrutiny against her to continue.

“We do not live in a society where a 21 year old college student can feel safe enough to pursue criminal charges against a celebrity for an alleged rape,” the woman’s lawyer wrote in a letter to the Auburn Police Dept and the King County D.A. in Washington, according to The Blast.

Nelly was accused of raping the woman in his tour bus in a Wal-Mart parking lot last week. The accuser does not wish to testify in court as she “cannot handle” the attention from the public.

There is still a possibility that a civil suit against Nelly could happen.

Nelly Tries to Explain the Texting on Excel Moment in 'Dilemma'

One thing that Nelly will never be able to live down is the moment in his “Dilemma” video in which Kelly Rowland sends a text message using Excel spreadsheet.

The 42-year-old rapper was asked to comment on why she texts that way in the video during an appearance on Australia’s The Project.

“I noticed in the video she is trying to text you using Excel spreadsheet,” one of the hosts says.

“You know, that was the thing at the time!” Nelly said. “That was the new technology at the time! It looks a little dated now, yeah. I can see it.”

It happened so fast!…We just sat there and had fun. Solange actually wrote on my first [solo album] Simply Deep, so I was the first person to get a Solange special.
