According to ABC News prosecutors in Washington state have dropped the rape case against rapper Nelly.

The 43-year-old, whose real name is Cornell Iral Haynes Jr., was arrested in October for allegedly raping a woman in his tour bus during a stop in Auburn, Washington, according to the Auburn Police Department.

The rapper has maintained his innocence the entire time taking to Twitter to reassure his fans of the falseness of the allegations against him.

“Police responded to and investigated a sexual assault allegation involving Mr. Haynes. However, within days of her initial report to police, the complainant, through her attorney, informed investigators from the Auburn police department that she did not wish to assist in prosecution or the investigation of Mr. Haynes,” a statement from the Attorney’s Office read.

“While we have reviewed the existing investigative material, without the assistance of the complainant, this office is unable to proceed or fully assess the merits of the case,” the statement concluded.

The Grammy winner was released from jail without being charged. That same day he tweeted, “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.”

His attorney Scott Rosenblum said in a statement obtained by ABC News that Nelly “is the victim of a completely fabricated allegation.”
