A sexual assault case against Nelly was dropped last Thursday after the woman who accused him in October refused to testify in court or help with the investigation.
Now, the singer is taking legal action to clear his name.
The 21 year old college student said Nelly assaulted her on a tour bus after his show in Washington.
Her lawyer explained that her client refused to go through with the allegations after a wave of intimidation and backlash from Nelly's team.
Nelly's team rebutted saying 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.
