The woman who accused Nelly of raping her on his tour bus is reportedly withdrawing her case because she doesn’t want to testify against the rapper.
In a letter her lawyer, Karen Koehler, sent to the Auburn Police Department in Washington, on Friday, October 13, the woman said that she wanted to “put a halt to the criminal investigation.”
“We do not live in a society where a 21 year old college student can feel safe enough to pursue criminal charges against a celebrity for an alleged rape,” the woman’s lawyer wrote in the letter obtained by TMZ, citing privacy concerns after information about the alleged victim’s meeting with police was released to the press.
“People are saying horrible things [about her] already,” the lawyer stated. “She cannot handle this. She is about to break.”
