Sources told the site the alleged attack occurred at 3.45AM, and Nelly - whose real name is Cornell Iral Haynes Jr - was specifically identified by the victim.

'Our initial investigation, clearly establishes the allegation is devoid of credibility and is motivated by greed and vindictiveness,' he said.
'I am confident, once the scurrilous accusation is thoroughly investigated, there will be no charges. 
'Nelly is prepared to pursue all all legal avenues to redress any damage caused by this clearly false allegation,' he added.
In April 2015 Nelly was also arrested after a stash of drugs and weapons was found on his tour bus. 
The incident unfolded when Tennessee Highway Patrol pulled the bus over because it failed to display a U.S. Department of Transportation and International Fuel Tax Association sticker.
But upon searching the vehicle, officers found methamphetamines, marijuana and handguns.
According to the police report, the trooper had smelled marijuana when they reached Nelly's bus, giving them probable cause to search the vehicle.
