Maino had his name sullied when porn star Mellanie Monroe accused him of assaulting her outside of nightspot the Griffin in NYC back in October 2014. Now, all charges against the Brooklyn rapper have been dropped since Monroe basically made the story up. 

The “All Of The Above” rapper will see the case dismissed today (Friday, March 6) in court.

After an investigation by the law firm representing Maino, The Blanch Law Firm, and the New York City D.A.’s office, it appears that Monroe, born Kelly Hennigan, fabricated her story about being assaulted by Maino and a member of his entourage.

Both Maino and an associate, Richard Holt, were arrested after Monroe’s accusations that the former assaulted her in his SUV while the latter hit her with a champagne bottle shortly after in the early morning of Oct. 21, 2014.

However, cellphone footage obtained The Blanch Law Firm shows that Monroe was never assaulted with a champagne bottle by Maino as she claims. Monroe was sprayed with champagne, but only after she was repeatedly seen and heard hurling variations of the N-word at Holt.

At one point, Monroe attempted to punch Holt, but he dodged her and never raised his hands towards her.

Monroe also claimed that Maino assaulted her in his SUV, an Audi Q7. However, it is physically impossible for Maino to have kicked Monroe in the leg, as she claimed, due to the driver and passenger seats of the vehicle being separated by a console.

Also, it was NYPD who removed Monroe from Maino’s vehicle, at his request (she had entered the SUV uninvited), on that fateful night.

“Violence against women is an important issue in today’s society,” said Nicole Manini, Esq. of the Blanch Law Firm. “As a female attorney, I find it completely offensive to actual victims of domestic violence and assault that Ms. Hennigan (aka Mellanie Monroe) would make these allegations against our client knowing that they were not true. False allegations of abuse and assault diminish the severity of such crimes real victims face and increase the fear that they will not be believed should they come forward against their assailants.”

True indeed.
