Has The World Reconciled With Nelly’s Troubling Past?

Has The World Reconciled With Nelly's Troubling Past?

On Wednesday (April 17), Ashanti went on her Instagram to share that she and Nelly are expecting their first child together. In the clip, we see the R&B singer getting ready to perform when “momager” Tina Douglas asks her how much more time she needs to get ready.

“I’m gonna need about nine months,” Ashanti replies leaving her mother speechless. In addition to being pregnant, the “Foolish” songstress told Essence magazine that she’s also engaged.

As the world celebrates their long-awaited reunion, does this mean it has reconciled with the rapper’s disturbing past?

Back in 2017, Nelly was arrested in Washington state after being accused of raping a woman on his tour bus. The woman, who would later be identified as 21-year-old Monique Greene, was one of three women who made sexual assault allegations against the rapper.

Greene’s case was dropped after she opted not to testify, but the lawsuit was eventually settled. Two more women from England would also make disturbing claims about the Nelly, saying that he groped them and masturbated in front of them after being invited to spend time with him and his entourage in 2016 and 2017.

However, Essex police stopped an investigation into the case of one of the English women due to her inability to testify. Nelly publicly expressed gratitude to U.K. police for “thoroughly investigating” the allegations.

Nelly — who already has son Cornell III, 21, and daughter, Chanelle, 26 — has seemingly never professionally suffered from the accusations, as the St. Louis native has gone on to release albums, appear in commercials and be honored at award shows.

“This new year of my life is such a blessing full of love, hope and anticipation,” Ashanti stated to the publication. “Motherhood is something that I have looked forward to, and sharing this with my family, fiancé and loyal fans, who have been so supportive of my career, is an amazing experience.”

As folks express joy for Ashanti and Nelly’s renewed relationship, they shouldn’t forget about his past.
