Nelly Rape Accuser Fires Back At Rapper’s Defamation Lawsuit And Explains Why It Should Be Dismissed In Court Docs
The back and forth between Nelly and one of the women he allegedly sexually assaulted continues.

It’s been a wild legal ride, let us assure you. And yikes-evoking.

Monique Greene has fired back at his defamation suit against her, saying she never lied about the alleged assault and this move is the rapper’s way of getting back at her.

(She actually also recently requested that a judge ban the music star from raping others.)

Monique claims that she told the truth when she told officers, outlets and the courts that Nelly raped her, following an appearance in a Seattle nightclub in 2017, according to her new court papers, which were filed last week and obtained by BOSSIP


She said that Nelly filed his lawsuit several months after the alleged rape occurred, as a means of retaliation against her. 

Monique sued Nelly last year, contending his handlers lured her to his tour bus for what she believed was an after-party. Instead, the young woman says he raped her. He was not criminally charged, though this was reportedly due to the fact that she wasn’t comfortable testifying amidst all the media attention.

Her lawyer, Karen Koehler, explained this in an open letter on Twitter, writing, "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 nightclub hostess also feels Nelly’s defamation case doesn’t have a leg to stand on in part because of his illegal actions that night. She said that any alleged defamatory statements she may have made were protected by her constitutional right to free speech. And that Nelly’s own behavior failed to prevent his reputation from being damaged.

Although Monique is now dealing with the defamation case, she stated in court papers that it was Nelly who has falsely dragged her name through the mud, forcing her to leave Seattle after receiving threats from his fans.
She also questioned why Nelly waited months before filing his defamation suit, choosing instead to first disparage her in the press and on social media, which, she believes, was supposed to intimidate her.
Nelly has not yet responded to Monique’s counterclaim, though he did file paperwork to have his Missouri “legal eagle” help represent him in the case. 

WCE..!!!!! Taste even better..!!!
