No one saw that coming!

Nelly was accused of serious crimes earlier this year and vehemently denied the allegations. Now, after being arrested and booked on the charges, the rapper no longer has a case hanging over his head. The case fell apart for the oddest reason, the woman refused to assist prosecutors in putting together a case against Nelly.

The accuser will not be moving forward with the case against Nelly, according to the King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office.

“Within days of her initial report to police, the complainant, through her attorney, informed investigators from the Auburn police department that she did not wish to assist in prosecution or the investigation of Mr. Haynes,” the prosecutor’s office revealed in a statement to the New York Daily News.

“While we have reviewed the existing investigative material, without the assistance of the complainant, this office is unable to proceed or fully assess the merits of the case,” they added.

According to Karen Koehler, the attorney for the unnamed plaintiff, she refused to cooperate with prosecutors because she believed that the trial would not be fair. Koehler said in a statement that the woman “wishes she had not called 911 because she believes the system is going to fail her.”
