Cops want to contact woman who claims rapper Nelly sexually assaulted her after a gig in Essex

COPS want to contact a woman who says rapper Nelly sexually assaulted her after a UK gig.

The allegation is included in the US lawsuit of a second woman who alleges he raped her on his tour bus.

Essex Police were alerted to December’s alleged Southend attack by US reports.

An Essex Police spokesman said: "We have checked our records and don't appear to have received a report of this incident.

"Specially trained officers are now making contact with the solicitors in a bid to contact the victim to take a report."

They plan to contact the Seattle-based lawyer bringing the rape claim to view details of the UK allegation by the unnamed woman.

Nelly, 43 — real name Cornell Iral Haynes Jr — denies the allegations and is countersuing.

Student Monique Greene, 22, is suing the rapper after prosecutors dropped the case because she would not testify.

The lawsuit also alleges a third woman was sexually assaulted after Nelly's show at Koko, in Camden, North London in June 2016.
