The 21-year-old college student, whose identity has been withheld, says she will not testify against the rapper because she doesn’t stand a chance facing off against a celebrity.

Via TMZ:

The woman’s attorney, Karen Koehler, says her client has told the Auburn PD in Washington State, and the King County D.A. to “put a halt to the criminal investigation of [Nelly]. She will not testify further in a criminal proceeding against him.”

Koehler says the young woman feels the system has failed her and she can’t stand up to a celebrity. “Who will believe her. People are saying horrible things already. She cannot handle this. She is about to break.”

Nelly’s attorney Scott Rosenblum tells us …the accuser’s “reckless accusation, once investigated thoroughly, was exposed for what it was-a fabrication. A fabrication that has caused Nelly and his family to suffer emotionally and financially.”

He’s not satisfied though, and says he wants a public apology from the woman, and will recommend Nelly consider taking legal action against her.
