News broke that the rapper, whose real name is Cornell Iral Haynes, Jr., was booked into a Washington jail by the Auburn, Washington, Police Department after a woman came forward claiming that he raped her in his tour bus. He was set to perform with Florida Georgia Line in Ridgefield over the weekend.

Attorney Scott Rosenblum, Nelly’s representative, said the accusation was “fabricated” in a statement:

"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."
