Nelly has come out with a public statement hours after a s3x tape of his was posted on social media.
The video — which went viral on Tuesday — popped up on the St. Louis native’s Instagram Stories for a brief period in the morning. In the shocking clip, viewers could see what appeared to be the Hot In Herre artist receiving oral s3x from a woman.
Talk about a surprise! lol
Obviously, fans and followers were shocked to see that kind of content on Instagram. And we would be, too!
It was deleted from the rapper’s IG Stories pretty quickly, but not before Nelly’s name trended on Twitter, with thousands of people giving their thoughts on the adult-themed content.
Now, the 47-year-old artist is speaking out and sharing his regrets that the thing ever saw the light of day.
Speaking to TMZ, Nelly intimated that the video was illicitly uploaded to his IG account. He also plainly apologized to the woman in the clip for inadvertently involving her in the controversy, saying:
“I sincerely apologize to the young lady and her family, this is unwanted publicity for her/them. This was an old video that was private and never meant to go public.”
