The rapper’s lawyer issued a statement on Friday declaring that the artist would file suit against the woman who accused him of rape and then decided she did not want to cooperate with authorities in an investigation.

“Nelly has suffered very real damage to his reputation. He has incurred economic loss and painfully has watched his family suffer. As a result Nelly is planning to proceed with litigation as the first step in restoring his reputation,” his attorney said in a statement to the Daily News.

An unidentified woman claimed Nelly, whose real name is Cornell Haynes Jr., raped her on his tour bus in Washington in October after one of the artist’s concerts.

I’m curious to see if Nelly will follow through on his threat to sue.
