“Our initial investigation clearly establishes this allegation is devoid of credibility and is motivated by greed and vindictiveness. I am confident, once this scurrilous accusation is thoroughly investigated, there will be no charges. Nelly is prepared to address and pursue all legal avenues to redress any damage caused by this clearly false allegation.”
Nelly's next tour stop is at the Sunlight Supply Amphitheater in Ridgefield, Wash. on Saturday night, where he is scheduled to perform with Florida Georgia Line and Chris Lane.
UPDATE 4:44 p.m. PT: Attorney Scott Rosenblum said Saturday afternoon that the singer was released from jail pending the investigation, and he is expected to be at the Ridgefield show.
