Nelly accuser sues rapper for defamation

Monique Greene claims he assaulted her on his tour bus in Seattle in October.

Nelly, real name Cornell Iral Haynes Jr, was arrested, though the case was dropped after his 22-year-old accuser said she would not testify against him.

Following his arrest, Nelly said he was "completely innocent" and claimed to be "the victim of a false allegation".

The 43-year-old's lawyer said he now plans to countersue and accused Ms Greene of being "motivated by greed".
