Photographs of Nelly standing handcuffed after being arrested on rape charges which have since been dropped have emerged.
The 43-year-old rapper was arrested in the early hours of October 7 after 22-year-old Monique Green, who has agreed to be identified, called police to claim he had raped her on his tour bus during an after-party onboard.
Green is a nightclub hostess in Seattle. She was working at the club where Nelly had performed the previous evening and said he attacked her on the bus after inviting her there for a party to follow on from the performance.
The bus was parked in a Walmart parking lot at the time of the alleged assault.
The woman called police after allegedly being thrown off the bus by Nelly following the alleged attack.
Nelly, whose real name is Cornell Iral Haynes Jr., has always denied the charges.

They criminal case against him was dropped when Green decided not to go ahead with pursuing charges but she is suing him in civil court.
On Friday, crime scene photographs taken on the tour bus and of what both of the pair were wearing were released and published by TMZ.
They showed the rapper standing by the side of the road in Seattle dressed in sweatpants, a sweater and with his hands cuffed behind his back after Green called police.
In his bedroom on the bus, the blue sheets appeared to be stained and the beds – both the rapper’s and camp beds for crew – were unmade.
There was a packet of baby wipes in the bathroom and clothes strewn across the bus.
In the bedroom, a football and football helmet were used as decorations.
Green is also pictured. She appears in what looks like a hospital gown, wiping tears from her eyes.

In her lawsuit, she described how on the night of October 6, she was working at the nightclub where she is a hostess when Nelly was performing.
She said he asked her back to his tour bus for an afterparty and that once they were there, they went into his bedroom.
Green claimed he started masturbating then had oral and vaginal sex with her against her will.
She claimed he refused to wear a condom despite her pleading with him to.
After the alleged attack, she said was thrown off the bus by a member of Nelly’s entourage.
Standing outside in the parking lot on her own, she said Nelly then threw a $100 bill at her and harassed her as she tried to call an Uber. That is when she dialled 911. It was 3.40am.
Next to the bed there were piles of folded clothes, a bottle of tequila, remote controls and what looked like a bottle of massage oil

He was released from custody without charge not long afterwards, however.
Nelly denied the accusations immediately.
He has not denied that the pair had sex but says vehemently that no attack took place.
‘Our initial investigation clearly establishes this allegation is devoid of credibility and is motivated by greed and vindictiveness.
‘I am confident, once this scurrilous accusation is thoroughly investigated, there will be no charges.
‘Nelly is prepared to address and pursue all legal avenues to redress any damage caused by this clearly false allegation,’ his lawyer said in a statement at the time.
He has since threatened to file his own lawsuit against Green for slander.
The rapper’s girlfriend Shantel Jackson is unperturbed by the allegations and is standing by him.
