Nelly's Rape Case Dropped by Prosecutors

Nelly's Rape Case Dropped by Prosecutors
Nelly is no longer facing an investigation.

The King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office tells Et that the woman who accused the 43-year-old rapper, whose real name is Cornell Haynes Jr., of sexually assaulting her on his tour bus in Washington this past October is no longer pressing charges.

"Police responded to and investigated a sexual assault allegation involving Mr. Haynes. However, within days of her initial report to police, the complainant, through her attorney, informed investigators from the Auburn police department that she did not wish to assist in prosecution or the investigation of Mr. Haynes," reads the statement from the prosecuting attorney’s office. "While we have reviewed the existing investigative material, without the assistance of the complainant, this office is unable to proceed or fully assess the merits of the case."

This doesn't come as a surprise as the woman's lawyer, Karen Koehler, noted back in October that her client told the local police that she

Woman Who Accused Nelly of Rape Wants to Drop the Case, Will Not Testify

Woman Who Accused Nelly of Rape Wants to Drop the Case, Will Not Testify
The woman who accused rapper Nelly of sexually assaulting her on his tour bus in Washington last weekend has told the local police that she will not testify against him, and wishes to end the investigation, her lawyer, Karen Koehler, said on Friday.

Koehler posted an open letter on her website, and said her client, a 21-year-old college student, didn't "feel safe enough to pursue criminal charges against a celebrity for an alleged rape." Nelly's lawyer told Et last week that the allegations against the 42-year-old rapper are "completely fabricated."

“She is telling the Auburn Police Department and the King County Prosecutor's Office to put a halt to the criminal investigation of Cornell Haynes, Jr. (aka "Nelly")," Koehler writes. "She will not testify further in a criminal proceeding against him."

"She never wanted notoriety," Koehler continues. "She never wanted a dime from that man. She wants to go back to school and to graduate. And this she cannot

Joel reveals 7 Days to Die Alpha 17 concept art in latest video

7 Days to Die fans be prepared to have your mind well and truly blown by some amazing Alpha 17 concept art revealed by Joel Huenink (Aka Madmole) of The Fun Pimps. If these features manage to get completed then Alpha 17 is going to be as equally epic as Alpha 16.

For the most part this concept art focuses on NPCs of different factions, both friendly and not so friendly, in fact when I say not so friendly I mean likely to kill you rather than look at you. Starting with these ‘baddies’ first we are treated to a glimpse of a member of Duke’s Initiates (remember Duke’s Casino Tokens), well armoured and more than likely well armed these chaps may put a dampener on your day, however, compared to the Duke’s Elite Guard they are probably pussy cats. The Elite Guard look like they were made for the apocalypse,

Better Than Wages: Chloé Zhao Discusses "The Rider"

  • MUBI
Midway through The Rider, Lakota cowboy Brady Blackburn (Brady Jandreau) takes a job at a local grocery store. Forbidden by his doctors from ever riding again and with few prospects near his home on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, he’s humiliated to find himself wearing a name tag and waving a barcode scanner. Brady, the actor, later told Chloé Zhao that filming those scenes was one of the hardest things he’d ever done. Like the character he plays, Jandreau had recently survived a near-fatal skull fracture during a rodeo, and the painful prospect of giving up his cowboy life was still fresh. The Rider is the second feature film Zhao has made at Pine Ridge, following Songs My Brothers Taught Me in 2015. “I wanted to make a movie about the cowboys I met there,” she told me, “but I didn’t have a story until Brady’s accident.

It was love at first sight for Lindsey Vonn.

“When I walked in for the first time, I said, ‘This is it! This is my house,” says Vonn, who immediately snapped up the cozy five-bedroom home in Vail, Colorado – the first she’s ever owned – after seeing it two years ago.

With sweeping views of snow-capped peaks and a river below, the light-flooded “mountain contemporary” hideaway tucked into the Gore Range was a no-brainer for the Olympic ski champion.

Green Day Defends Performing Festival Set Shortly After Acrobat's Death: 'We Are Not Heartless People'

Green Day Defends Performing Festival Set Shortly After Acrobat's Death: 'We Are Not Heartless People'
The members of Green Day are defending themselves against accusations of insensitivity after performing a set at the Mad Cool Festival in Spain immediately following a fatal on-stage accident that left a Spanish acrobat dead.

The tragic mishap occurred on Friday during a performance featuring acrobat Pedro Aunion Monroy, who was performing an aerial stunt in front of the massive crowd. The performance went wrong and, despite safety precautions, Monroy fell more than 100 feet to the ground.

The 42-year-old entertainer was attended to by paramedics, but soon succumbed to the injuries he sustained in the fall.

After a short delay, Green Day, who were the nights' headliners, took the stage and performed their set as planned. However, the band has released a statement claiming that they weren't informed of Monroy's death until after their performance had ended.

Where to See Christopher Nolan’s ‘Dunkirk’ in 70mm

We’re just a few weeks away from a new Christopher Nolan film, which means questions may abound about what exact format to see it in. With around 75% of his World War II thriller Dunkirk reported to be shot on IMAX 65mm film stock (aka the vertically-longer aspect ratio first utilized by Nolan for The Dark Knight, most memorably for the opening scene) and the rest on 65mm large format film stock, the best experience one can have is seeking out a 15/70mm presentation.

As tickets go on sale this morning, we now have a list of all the locations in the U.S. and Canada presenting the film in 70mm. Before we get to that list (via Nolan Fans), check out a visual format guide from Anton Volkov, as well as a new TV spot.

Washington Couple Whose Son Committed Suicide Help Other Teens Struggling with Mental Illness: ‘There is Hope’
Jordan Binion intently stared out his kitchen window, fully expecting Drake or Justin Timberlake to arrive on his doorstep, whisking him away to a musical career that would make him famous.

Instead, Binion’s increasing mental illness drove him to take his own life with a self-inflicted gunshot in 2010 just days after the Washington state boy turned 17 years old. His parents Deb and Willie Binion of Graham, Washington, were outraged that under the law at that time, a clearly psychotic Jordan had been able to sign himself out of a Seattle hospital without the treatment that might have saved him.

Man Who Raped and Killed 1-Year-Old Girl Confronted by Her Mom in Court: I Hope Your Guilt ‘Torments You’

A 23-year-old Indiana man will be spending the next 60 years behind bars following his confession this week that he kidnapped, sexually assaulted and murdered a toddler last March, People confirms.
