RAPPER NELLY is under investigation for sexual assault again - this time in the U.K.

According to TMZ, Police officials in Essex are looking into claims the My Place hitmaker masturbated in front of a fan backstage after a Southend show on 5 December (17).

The unidentified woman also alleges he tried to pull her top off, attempted to kiss her and forced her head down. The woman claims she didn't go to the police immediately because she didn't think anyone would believe her.

The alleged incident occurred two months after another woman, 22-year-old Monique Greene, claimed Nelly raped her on his tour bus after a gig in Washington. He strongly denied her story.

Another woman has also alleged she was sexually assaulted when the rapper put his hand up her dress after a show in Camden, London, in June, 2016.

Prosecutors dropped a criminal case against Nelly last year because Greene would not testify. She subsequently launched a defamation lawsuit against the 43-year-old rap star, who, in since-released police reports, confessed they did have oral and vaginal sex, but insisted it was fully consensual.

Nelly's longtime girlfriend, Shantel Jackson, acknowledged that he had messed up by cheating on her with Greene, but dismissed the two new allegations of sexual misconduct against her partner as "false claims", according to music-news.com.
