Earlier this week, the second-degree rape charges against Nelly were dropped after the accuser reportedly “refused to cooperate” with the police. At the time, TMZ added that she didn’t want to face “the pressure of accusing a huge star like Nelly.” Now, though, the BBC is reporting that the accuser—Monique Greene—is suing Nelly for defamation after the R&B star’s lawyer dismissed her accusations as “reckless” and “a fabrication.” Nelly’s lawyer also says that intends to countersue Greene, saying she’s “motivated by greed.”

The rape allegedly happened in October when Nelly invited Greene to a party after a show and then took her to his tour bus, where she says he assaulted her. Nelly was arrested shortly after, proclaiming that he was “completely innocent” and “the victim of a false allegation.”
