It’s been a lengthy legal battle between “Country Grammar” rapper, Nelly, and the woman who accused him of sexual assault in October 2017. Their case has seen more twists and turns than a lil’ bit and the accuser, Monique Greene, has gone through different phases of her accusations. First there was filing the criminal case, then dropping the criminal case, then filing a lawsuit, and now… the lawsuit has been dismissed once and for all. However, the reasons as to why that is are different, depending on who’s side you ask.

Apparently, the lawsuit has now been dismissed ‘with prejudice,’ which means Monique can never re-file a lawsuit against Nelly for this claim again.

The Blast has just reported the details behind the lawsuit that was filed after the accuser claimed Nelly raped her on his tour bus last year, while Nelly was adamant that she was lying through her teeth and the sex was consensual. Here’s the latest in how this whole thing turned out a few days ago:

Nelly’s lawyer, Scott Rosenblum, tells The Blast, “The lawsuit with Nelly and accuser has been dropped. Both parties have mutually agreed to drop the lawsuit. No settlement or money changed hands.”

However, Greene’s attorney, Karen Koehler, is refuting Nelly’s statement and says the information about no money changing hands is “false.”

A source close to Greene tells The Blast that she “just wanted this to be done with.” the ordeal and “wants to get on with her life.”

So…we’re not sure who’s telling the truth regarding the money exchange- or lack thereof. However, from the jump, certain aspects of this case were beginning to look somewhat money motivated to begin with. Even still, that’s not to say that the young lady isn’t telling the truth. She may, or may not be.

But if you missed the past claims and reports regarding this unfortunate ordeal, below is a quick recap of what we previously reported…

Nelly’s Attorney’s Clapped Back
Nelly’s attorney then shot back with this statement:

“Nelly is the victim of a completely fabricated allegation. Our initial investigation, clearly establishes the allegation is devoid of credibility and is motivated by greed and vindictiveness. I am confident, once the scurrilous accusation is thoroughly investigated, there will be no charges. Nelly is prepared to pursue all all legal avenues to redress any damage caused by this clearly false allegation.” -Nelly’s attorney, via TMZ

Then, as soon as Nelly was released with no charges against him, he blasted off on social media, reclaiming his innocence:




Accuser Then Refused To Testify, Here’s Why
The accuser and her lawyer released a lengthy letter trying to explain why she is suddenly dropping all charges against Nelly…

Via TMZ: The woman who accused Nelly of rape is refusing to testify, and wants the whole matter dropped … TMZ has learned. The woman’s attorney says her client has told the Auburn PD in Washington State, and the King County D.A. to “put a halt to the criminal investigation of [Nelly]. She will not testify further in a criminal proceeding against him.” Her attorney says the young woman feels the system has failed her and she can’t stand up to a celebrity. “Who will believe her? People are saying horrible things already. She cannot handle this. She is about to break.”

Not sure what -if any- was really up with the Monique’s decision to suddenly drop her case. But many believed that the fact that she dropped it so soon, made her claims seem a little suspicious.

Lawsuit & Counter-Lawsuit
Monique Greene then filed a defamation lawsuit against Nelly, for speaking out to defend himself against her accusations. Nelly then filed a counter-lawsuit against the accuser for what he says are “lies.” And months later, here we are… everything’s a wrap with this case and both parties involved can go back to living their best lives.
