On October 7, 2017, Nelly was arrested after he was accused of raping a woman on his tour bus. Last week, all charges against him were dropped. Now, the rapper is suing his accuser. His lawyer Scott Rosenblum said in a statement, “Nelly has suffered very real damage to his reputation. He has incurred economic loss and painfully has watched his family suffer. As a result, Nelly is planning to proceed with litigation as the first step in restoring his reputation. A thorough investigation did show Nelly was a victim of deceitful allegation devoid of credibility. Credible evidence did show this accuser to be deceptive.” Being falsely accused of rape is serious and can ruin someone’s life. If Nelly was falsely accused, we hope he gets the justice he deserves. We’ll keep you posted as more info surfaces.

Miss Hill Continues The Fight
Anita Hill made sexual harassment a nationwide discussion when she came forward to accuse Clarence Thomas of sexual harassment during his confirmation process for the U.S. Supreme Court Justice in 1991. Now, she is taking on Hollywood. On Friday, Anita Hill, 61, was named as the chair of the Hollywood Commission for Eliminating Sexual Harassment and Advancing Equality in the Workplace. Kathleen Kennedy, Lucasfilm President, said in a statement, “The Commission will not seek just one solution, but a comprehensive strategy to address the complex and inter-related causes of the problems of parity and power.” Anita Hill is certainly the best person for the gig. If you think you’ve already seen changes to Hollywood, you haven’t seen nothing yet when the legendary Anita Hill gets to work.
