The charges of rape against rapper Nelly has brought into focus his relationship with his girlfriend, Shantel Jackson. Jackson is a famous fashion model who has acted in films and appeared in music videos. She has appeared in the pages of many fashion magazines and is currently working on her line of unisex clothing. And, the last thing she needs is more controversy, especially after her tumultuous relationship with boxer Floyd Mayweather ended badly. 

Nelly is back again in the news but for something he would rather not be for. Nelly has been accused of rape by a woman who complained to the police that this sexual assault occurred on his tour bus.  

Nelly, whose real name is Cornell Iral Haynes Jr., was taken into custody on Saturday, October 7, 2017, by the police in Washington State, and taken to jail in Des Moines, Washington. Nelly was booked for investigation of rape in the second degree but released a few hours later. However, Nelly tweeted on Saturday afternoon that he was “completely innocent” and will be proved so soon.

This new controversy has put the spotlight on a lady named Shantel Jackson who is believed to be Nelly’s girlfriend currently. Shantel Jackson and Nelly have been seen together several times and are rumored to be involved with each other.

Before Jackson became Nelly’s girlfriend, she was involved with the heavyweight boxer, Floyd Mayweather. They met in 2006 and had an on-off relationship for around eight years before breaking it off for good. They were even engaged at one point but later had a very public acrimonious break-up.

While Jackson filed a civil suit against Mayweather, accusing him of humiliating her, stealing her belongings, and blackmailing her, he accused her of having many plastic surgeries that he had to pay for.
