Nelly’s Accuser Says His Legal Team Is Bullying Her

Nelly‘s accuser says his legal team is trying to intimidate, bully, and defame her in the media.

The 21-year-old woman, whose identity has been kept under wraps, says the “Country Grammar” rapper’s legal team is dragging her through the mud by painting her out to be shady woman with an agenda to make a quick come up.

Via TMZ:

The alleged victim’s attorney, Karen Koehler, says Nelly fired off a letter to prosecutors laying out what she views as verbal attacks made by Nelly’s team since TMZ broke the story of Nelly’s arrest. In the letter she says, “It is morally reprehensible for an accused person and his bully lawyer to issue derogatory and defamatory statements against a young alleged rape victim.”

She adds, “It is also criminal — in the State of Washington — when those vicious attacks are issued in the form of threats.”

Koehler singles out Nelly’s attorney for saying the accuser is “a person with an agenda and clearly she has one. The agenda is money, fame and notoriety.”

Koehler’s letter includes the legal statutes regarding intimidating a witness — which is a class B felony in Washington.

This is a very unfortunate situation.

Just as her reputation is on the line…Nelly’s is as well.
