UPDATE (12/20/17 10.40 a.m. ET)
The woman accusing Nelly of raping her has been revealed, and she is now suing the rapper for sexual assault and defamation.
Just days after he announced via his lawyer he was planning on suing her for defamation, TMZ obtained court documents detailing the alleged attack.
It came right after the case against him was dropped when Monique Greene refused to testify in court.
According to the documents, Monique worked as a host at the Seattle club where Nelly performed on October 6. Though she was not working that night, she was there to watch Nelly.
She claims she was drinking with his entourage after the show when he invited her to join him at an afterparty.
An SUV took them to Nelly's tour bus in a Walmart parking lot.
When she boarded, they went to the back of the bus where Nelly's bed was, which is when, she claims, he started masturbating in front of her before allegedly having sex with her against her will, both orally and vaginally.
According to the suit, Monique asked him to wear a condom, he refused and continued to assault her.
Afterwards, she was screaming that she wanted off the bus and when a member of his entourage took her off, she claims Nelly threw $100 at her and said, "Bye bye."
She called 911 while waiting for an Uber, police showed up and took her to hospital to complete a rape kit. They then arrested Nelly for 2nd degree rape.
Monique said she dropped the charges because she felt she couldn't "stand up against a celebrity and that the criminal system would fail her."
As well as suing for the sexual assault, Monique is also suing for defamation, as she claims Nelly began a smear campaign against her after the incident.

Nelly is reportedly planning on suing the woman who accused him of rape for tarnishing his reputation.
The 42-year-old rapper — whose real name is Cornell Iral Haynes Jr — recently had his court case closed by authorities after his 21-year-old accuser refused to testify against him, meaning no charges could be brought against him.
She accused the star of sexually assaulting her on his tour bus and he was arrested in October.
And now, the "Hot in Here" hitmaker is said to be seeking legal action against the woman, as he feels his reputation has been tarnished by the claims made against him.
His lawyer Scott Rosenblum said in a statement to People magazine, ''The formal close of the investigation into the false allegations made against Nelly is of course welcome, however expected.
Let me say that I am beyond shocked that I have been targeted with this false allegation. I am completely innocent. I am confident that once the facts are looked at , it will be very clear that I am the victim of a false allegation.Nelly_Mo (@Nelly_Mo) October 7, 2017
"We were confident that what our investigation revealed from the outset of this allegation would ultimately be clear and Nelly would be vindicated.
''A thorough investigation did show Nelly was a victim of deceitful allegation devoid of credibility.
"Credible evidence did show this accuser to be deceptive.
"We have been in constant communication with the King County authorities and welcomed and appreciated the diligence in which the authorities proceeded leaving no stone unturned.
''Nelly has suffered very real damage to his reputation.
"He has incurred economic loss and painfully has watched his family suffer.
To be absolutely clear. I have not been charged with a crime therefore no bail was required. I was released , pending further investigation.Nelly_Mo (@Nelly_Mo) October 7, 2017
"As a result Nelly is planning to proceed with litigation as the first step in restoring his reputation.''
The statement also claims the rapper fully supports victims of sexual assault, but insists that his accuser's ''false allegation'' is an ''affront to the real survivors of sexual assault."
The statement continues, ''Nelly recognises the need for women who are victims of sexual assault of any kind to be heard and our existing systems changed.
"Nelly supports various women's advocacy groups that deal with sexual assault and violence against women and is dedicated to raising awareness and furthering the conversation to bring about necessary changes.
"However, this type of reckless false allegation cannot be tolerated as it is an affront to the real survivors of sexual assault.''
The "Dilemma" rapper's case was thrown out of court earlier this week, after the King County Prosecuting Attorney's Office claimed the woman's refusal to co-operate with the case ''made it impossible'' for them to charge the star with any crime.
I also want to thank my fans for their unwavering support. They know me. I assure you I will be vindicated. And I assure you, I will pursue every legal option to address this defaming claim. Thank youNelly_Mo (@Nelly_Mo) October 7, 2017
