The Washington woman who accused hip hop star Nelly of rape said he forced her to have sex without a condom after a boozy night of partying and kicked her off his tour bus when she refused his hush money.
The accuser also said that, after she was booted from his bus, another woman threw $ 100 at her, according to TMZ.
Nelly’s lawyer, Scott Rosenblum, told the Daily News in a statement that the allegations were bogus and that he and a private investigator were compiling evidence to prove the accuser’s version of events were false.
“It does not surprise me that she wanted to have her story publicized,” Rosenblum said. “That is playbook 101 of a person with an agenda and clearly she has one. The agenda is money, fame and notoriety.”
The Auburn Police Department in Washington arrested the 42-year-old singer Saturday morning after the woman told police that he had sexually assaulted her on his tour bus parked in a Walmart parking lot.
The accuser – a 21-year-old Seattle resident – said she met Nelly at a club while she and her friends were drinking alcohol, according to TMZ. She said she got “tipsy” and was invited to an after-party on the rapper’s bus.
TMZ reported that she said she was in a room with Nelly when he tried to have sex with her. She said when she refused, he told her to “shut up” and forced himself on her without a condom.

After the assault, she said, Nelly tried to pay her money, but she refused to take it. She said she was then kicked off the bus and had $ 100 tossed at her, according to TMZ.
Rosenblum said the accuser was not credible.
“She’s a person who is making a dangerous, fraudulent allegation to accomplish her own goals,” the lawyer said in his statement.
Nelly took to Twitter on Saturday night to deny the rape accusation.
“Let me say that I am beyond shocked that I have been targeted with this false allegation,” he wrote. “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.”
“I assure you I will be vindicated. And I assure you, I will pursue every legal option to address this defaming claim,” he added.
The singer was scheduled to perform Saturday night with Florida Georgia Line, but canceled his show in the wake of his arrest.
