“I’m Almost 100% Positive He’s Innocent:” Akon Claims People Like Nelly Are Targets For False Allegations

While supporting a fellow musician and friend, Akon firmly believes there’s no way the allegations against Nelly are true — this is just an attempt at a quick payday.

Moreover, he tells TMZ he’s “almost 100 percent positive [Nelly’s] innocent” and that “people like [them] are licks for these girls now.”

Additionally, Akon, real name Aliaume Damala Badara Akon Thiam, states:

“Not the Nelly I know. He’s an amazing person. I just know how scary these type of situations can be. But I’m almost 100 percent positive he’s innocent.”

He adds:

“I don’t see Nelly forcing no one. It just doesn’t make sense. A lot of times it’s always a member of an entourage or someone that comes on as a friend of an entourage and because you are the name, often times to get the truth out they always, you know… With Nelly being captured, for something like, the truth normally will come out. Or whoever it might have been. I don’t think it was him directly, though. “

Also, the American-Senegalese artists claims:

“Often times in those kinds of situations you’ve got to be mindful…because people like us are licks for these girls now. We’re targets on every level.  And half the time, they’ll set up a charge just for us to settle out. Just so we don’t deal with the embarrassment or go through the process of fighting it, because once you get that stigma, it’s on you whether you’re innocent or guilty. “

Furthermore, when asked if he’d ever hesitate to work with Nelly again, he says:

“No. The Nelly I know, he would never do nothing like that. He’s not capable…I know Nelly.”
