A woman in the United Kingdom has dropped sexual assault charges against rapper Nelly. This is another example of the damaging side of the #MeToo movement when it comes to famous people being the victims of defamation and possible extortion.
However, this has not stopped Nelly. Since the beginning, he has maintained his innocence and is happy to stand by real survivors of sexual assault cases that are truthful.
‘I stand with women and real survivors and can’t wait to just focus on what I love, family, music and reconnecting with the fans that have stood by me through these turbulent times,’ Nelly said. ‘I am very thankful to the U.K. police for thoroughly investigating the false allegations against me.’
The reason why police dropped the case was because the so-called victim was unwilling to testify. The presumed assault occurred during a tour stop in Essex back in 2017, but the lawsuit was presented in the United States. However due to the location, it was investigated by Essex Police.
