Nelly Said He Was Completely Unaware That Drugs Were On His Tour Bus
According to TMZ reports:
Nelly is speaking out about the drug bust on his tour bus this morning — saying he had no clue the vehicle was loaded down with heroin and marijuana.
Nelly tells TMZ, “It is my understanding a member of my staff made an unfortunate decision to bring unlawful materials onto our tour bus that resulted in his arrest this morning.”
As TMZ first reported, police in Sierra Blanca, Texas say they found 36 baggies of heroin, more than 10 pounds of weed, and a loaded .45 caliber pistol. We’re told a passenger on the bus, Brian Keith Jones, was arrested after admitting the drugs and the weapon were his.
Nelly adds, “Neither I nor anyone else on the tour bus was aware of his decision to bring these on board. Law enforcement officials did not press charges against anyone other than that individual.”
In regards to “the H” that was found on board, we are now told that it was actually a drug that is a little more popular nowadays…
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ field tests of the drugs in the baggies confirmed it was heroin — but sources close to Nelly claim it was Molly … aka pure ecstasy.
Of course it was…SMH
Listen, for all intents and purposes we would hope that with all the records that Nelly has sold, and all the money he’s made, that he wouldn’t have a need to be trafficking drugs. That said, to say he had “no idea” that this was going on…who the hell on your “staff” has enough money to buy 10 lbs. of ganja etc.?? He must have gotten the money from SOMEWHERE!
