Nelly & Monique Greene In Legal Battle Over Alleged Rape
Nelly’s rape accuser is hitting back at the rapper’s claims that she littered her court filings with salacious, irrelevant details and pics in order to sway the court and public opinion.
The “Hot in Here” rapper asked a judge to strike portions of Monique Greene’s complaint, arguing they were purposely malicious, unproven, and had nothing to do with the case except to ruin Nelly’s rep.
Greene sued Nelly last year after she said his handlers lured her to the rapper’s tour bus, where he raped her. Nelly has countersued her, alleging she made false statements to law enforcement in order to get him arrested.
Lawyers for Nelly, whose real name is Cornell Haynes, argued that elements from Greene’s complaint – including allegations from two unnamed women who said Nelly sexually assaulted them, photos of the two women with Nelly, and another photo of Nelly in handcuffs – weren’t hard facts, and were designed to inflame the public about the alleged rape.
But Greene’s lawyer filed paperwork Wednesday said Nelly’s motion didn’t have a shot in hell because the allegations, photos and other evidence in her complaint – no matter now unpleasant – actually describe what happened. Greene also said that she included the other women’s testimony to illustrate Nelly’s alleged pattern of sexual abuse. Greene’s lawyer Karen Kohler said police in the U.K. are investigating one of the woman’s claims, while the other woman is a sergeant in the U.S. Army.
Greene wants the judge to bar Nelly (and specifically, his penis) from abusing any other women – and not money – which contradict’s Nelly’s assertion that Greene’s lawsuit was a “money grab,” Greene’s court papers state.
“Given the scheme and pattern of conduct and the multiple instances of wrongful conduct against female members of the public who attend his concerts as described in the complaint, an injunction is a viable remedy,” Greene’s court papers, obtained by BOSSIP, state. “It is also no worse in terms of being humiliating to Defendant Nelly – than a jury finding him liable for committing the sexual assaults detailed in the complaint and assessing money damages.”
Greene’s lawyer said Nelly and his legal team have played dirty from the get go, launching a campaign of intimidation and threats against Greene that began the day after the alleged rape and in the middle of the criminal investigation, according to court papers obtained by BOSSIP. Nelly was not criminally charged in connection to the rape complaint.
A judge has not yet ruled on the matter.
