Rapper Nelly has reportedly reached a settlement with a British woman who accused him of sexual assault.

Nelly was sued by the woman who accused the star of sexually assaulting her after a 2017 concert in Essex, just outside of London. According to the woman, after going backstage to meet the Nelly, he exposed himself and began masturbating in front of her before allegedly forcing his erect penis inside her mouth.

The unidentified woman, who is known only as Jane Doe, informed a federal judge Tuesday that she and Nelly recently settled the lawsuit, per TMZ.

Earlier this month, Nelly’s girlfriend, Shantel Jackson, filed a lawsuit demanding to be let out of the woman’s lawsuit after the woman added Shantel Jackson as a defendant over a series of tweets. Jane Doe also sued Jackson for defamation over the tweets which called her a liar - but never actually named her.
