[VIDEO] Footage Shows Nelly’s Awkward Onstage Behavior Night Of Alleged Rape Emerge Amid Rape Scandal
Earlier today, we shared details about Nelly’s arrest. For those who missed that, the St. Louis rapper sparked a media firestorm when it was reported that he was arrested on rape charges. Of course, the arrest has also sparked a debate on social media, and now fans are attempting to connect a few dots. Apparently, Nelly has been acting a bit weird lately and fans who shared footage from his recent concerts agree. If you haven’t seen the clips, you’ll probably agree something seems a bit off about Nelly.
Awkward Moments On Stage:
According to theGrio, fans have taken to Twitter with clips of Nelly singing to fans onstage. However, the fans he’s been selecting aren’t the typical women you’d expect. They’re actually little girls. The footage shows Nelly onstage serenading a little girl and singing the lyrics to his hit song, “Over and Over Again,” while playing with her hair and touching her face. Of course, performers bring fans onstage all the time, but the little girl’s age made everything seem a bit awkward and with his recent arrest, to many fans, it looks a bit disturbing.
But, apparently, this wasn’t the first time. Another fan in Montana also shared a clip from one of the rapper’s recent concerts and his actions were quite similar.
Check out the second video:

Of course, there are the die-hard Nelly fans who believe the rape accuser, who claims to have been raped by the rapper on his tour bus, is lying. But based on the recent clips, many other fans aren’t so sure how they feel about Nelly serenading little girls. In fact, many fans have shared their reactions to the clips. Many Twitter users have admitted that Nelly’s interactions with little girls are a bit…awkward.

Nelly, whose real name is Cornell Iral Haynes Jr., was arrested early Saturday morning in Washington state shortly after his concert at the White River Amphitheatre in Auburn, Washington. The rapper is accused of raping a woman on his tour bus while it was parked outside of a Walmart location. Despite the allegations, Nelly’s attorney, Scott Rosenblum, has released a statement denying all allegations. The rapper insists the allegations are “completely fabricated.”
“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,” Rosenblum said in an email, according to Fox News.
