Nelly is infamous for sticking his hands in far too many cookie jars. In what seems like yet another sticky love triangle, the rapper is allegedly at the center of a serious domestic dispute between Carolina Panthers’ Greg Hardy Jr. and his lady.
As Page Six has it, the defensive lineman was taken into custody earlier this week in Charlotte, North Carolina on charges of assault and violent threats against his girlfriend, Nicole Holder. Hardy’s arrest warrant notes that his girlfriend is alleging that the massive athlete hurled her onto a pile of guns and threatened to kill her.
Reportedly, Nelly was what triggered the fight. Holder is claiming that Hardy turned into a jealous rage over her past relationship with the St. Louis rapper, which she notes was short-lived.
According to the Charlotte Observer, Holder had this to say about Hardy and the attack:
“On May 13, 2014 Greg Hardy attacked me in his apartment. Hardy picked me up and threw me in the tile tub area of his bathroom. I have bruises from head to toe, including head, neck, back, shoulders, arms, legs elbow and feet. Hardy pulled me from the tub by my hair, screaming at me that he was going to kill me, break my arms and other threats that I completely believe. He drug me across the bathroom and out into the bedroom. Hardy choked me with both hands around my throat while I was lying on the floor. Hardy picked me up over his head and threw me onto a couch covered in assault rifles and/or shotguns. I landed on those weapons. Hardy bragged that all the assault rifles were loaded. Landing on those weapons bruised my neck and my back. Hardy screamed for his ‘administrative assistant’ (Sammy Curtis) to come into the room and hold me down. Curtis came into the room, grabbed me from behind and held me down. Hardy and Curtis then took me into the living room area. I wasn’t nearly strong or fast enough to escape. I begged them to let me go & I wouldn’t tell anyone what he did. They took me out into the hall, pushed me down & went back inside the apartment. I crawled to the elevator and ran into [Charlotte Mecklenburg Police Department].”
Hardy, however, is declaring that he is innocent. As per his attorney, Chis Fialko, Holder was the one who actually attacked Hardy and his friend, refusing to leave the apartment. Furthermore, Holder’s petition for a protective order against the 25-year-old NFL star was denied by a judge after she failed to appear for a scheduled hearing.
Nelly also made headlines last month for his romantic relationship with Floyd Mayweather Jr.’s ex-fiancée, Shantel Jackson. What are your thoughts on the case? Chime in at the bottom.
