Nelly Under Criminal Investigation for Sexual Assault

2/13/2018 7:27 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Nelly's attorney, Scott Rosenblum, tells us, "These allegations arose after Ms. Green amended her suit for money to include a reference to these claims. The fact that the police are investigating these claims is not new information and Nelly welcomes a thorough investigation. Nelly is confident that once investigated, these claims will be determined to be disingenuous."

He adds, "Nelly was accompanied by his girlfriend during this tour and she was at his side throughout. It is important that police investigate every allegation of this nature."

Nelly is being criminally investigated for sexual assault in England ... TMZ has learned.

The incident allegedly went down December 5 after Nelly's performance at Cliffs Pavilion in Essex. The accuser says she went to take a picture with Nelly and she says he placed his arm tightly behind her and asked if she could stay behind to talk to him.

They went to his dressing room with her friends and she says he then asked her to come to a room next door. She claims once in the room he dropped his pants and began masturbating in front of her. She also claims he put his hand on her top and tried pulling it off. She says he also tried kissing her as she tried to bolt from the room.

The woman says Nelly put his right hand on the back of her head and his left hand on her shoulder, forced her head down, pushing his erect penis into her mouth. She says she ran out of the room as he called her a c***.

The woman says she didn't go to cops immediately because she didn't think she'd be believed.

Essex police told cops they have begun a sexual assault investigation.

The alleged incident occurred 2 months after another woman claimed Nelly raped her on his tour bus.  He strongly denied it.  

We've reached out to Nelly's rep for comment ... so far no word back.

EXCLUSIVE

Miley Cyrus has an obsessed fan who traveled cross-country -- without invitation -- to see her in person, and left some bizarre Facebook posts that forced cops to take him into custody ... TMZ has learned.

The guy is from the Milwaukee area, and a couple of weeks ago he wrote several posts referencing taking a trip to see Miley. He claims he knows her address, how best to enter her home and says they'll "finally get together."

There's also a creepy thank you to Miley for "getting rid of Liam" ... and some rambling commentary about a "horrific act" he's going to pull off that will be on the news. The posts caught the attention of a concerned citizen, who alerted Milwaukee police.

According to law enforcement sources ... Milwaukee PD contacted LAPD and the L.A. Sheriff's Department to give them a heads up, and good thing they did.  We're told the guy actually did make his way to Los Angeles -- cops located him on Monday, interviewed him and took him in for psychological evaluation. They can hold him for up to 72 hours.

It's unclear if Miley was aware of the apparent danger. We've reached out to her legal team.

Breaking News

The mother of Pirates catcher Elias Diaz has been safely recovered 3 days after she was abducted in Venezuela ... and several dirty cops have been booked for carrying out the kidnapping.

Elias' mom, 72-year-old Ana Soto, went missing last Thursday in their hometown of Maracaibo -- the state capital of Zulia, Venezuela -- shortly after Elias left her at home. 

On Sunday, a group of national and local police officers were able to pull off a rescue mission and place her 6 captors under arrest -- 5 of whom were on the Zulia state police force, according to BBC.

The head of Venezuela's investigative police dept. says no ransom was paid for the return of Ana -- who is reportedly in good health despite the incident. 

The Pirates released a statement after hearing the news, saying they are "relieved and overjoyed" ... and "incredibly grateful for the swift and effective work of the local law enforcement officials."

FYI, Venezuelan sports stars and their families being targeted is nothing new. Nationals catcher Wilson Ramos was kidnapped back in 2011 ... and more recently, Tigers superstar Miguel Cabrera claimed his family was in grave danger, specifically mentioning dirty cops.

Diaz, 27, was the Pirates' backup catcher last season, hitting .223 in 188 at-bats. He's expected to report to the team's training camp Monday in Pittsburgh.

Harvey Weinstein & TWC Sued N.Y. AG Claims Civil Rights Violations Bob & Co. Were Complicit!!

2/11/2018 2:19 PM PST
Breaking News

5:06 PM PT -- Weinstein's lawyer, Ben Brafman, tells TMZ, "We believe that a fair investigation by Mr. Schneiderman will demonstrate that many of the allegations against Harvey Weinstein are without merit. While Mr. Weinstein's behavior was not without fault, there certainly was no criminality, and at the end of the inquiry it will be clear that Harvey Weinstein promoted more women to key executive positions than any other industry leader and there was zero discrimination at either Miramax or TWC."

The statement goes on ... "If the purpose of the inquiry is to encourage reform throughout the film industry, Mr. Weinstein will embrace the investigation. If the purpose, however, is to scapegoat Mr. Weinstein, he will vigorously defend himself."

Harvey Weinstein and The Weinstein Company are being sued by the New York attorney general for alleged civil rights violations in the workplace.

New York's AG, Eric Schneiderman, just filed suit against Harvey, his brother Bob Weinstein, and the entire Weinstein Co., alleging they violated the state's civil rights laws and NYC's human rights laws during the disgraced movie producer's time there.

According to the docs, obtained by TMZ, Schneiderman says Harvey persistently sexually harassed female employees at TWC by personally creating a hostile work environment and demanding quid pro quo sexual favors for continued employment or career advancement.

He goes on to allege that Harvey used his position at TWC, as well as female employees and company resources, to serve his sexual interests with other women seeking employment or business opportunities with TWC. 

Schneiderman also accuses TWC's human resources department of essentially being non-existent ... while going on to claim Bob and the rest of the board of directors were complicit in Harvey's operation by ignoring credible evidence presented to them time and again.

Schneiderman wants Harvey, Bob and TWC to pay out the nose for their alleged misdeeds ... upwards of $350k for each violation. He also wants any women bound to an NDA with the company to be released from its terms.
