NFL Player 'Snapped' Over Girlfriend's Fling With Nelly: Court Docs

Nelly attends to the Republic Records post GRAMMY party at the Emerson Theatre on February 10, 2013 in Hollywood, California.

The woman who alleges that defensive end Greg Hardy of the Carolina Panthers assaulted and threatened to kill her said he "just snapped" after an argument over her short-lived relationship with rapper Nelly, according to new court documents released Thursday.

In a Charlotte Police Department warrant worksheet for obtaining an arrest, the woman said that she and Hardy lived together until they broke up in March and she moved out. She said that she and Hardy were trying to reconcile and went out Monday night. They returned to Hardy's residence but he was upset over the woman's relationship with Nelly, also a minority owner of the Charlotte Bobcats whose given name is Cornell Haynes Jr.

The court document states that the woman was lying in bed with Hardy when he "just snapped" and then "physically threw her into the floor, and then tossed her into the tile bathtub."

Earlier Thursday, District Court Judge Charlotte Brown dismissed a protective order request by the woman after she failed to show up in court. After the protective order was dismissed, attorney Stephen Goodwin walked out of the courtroom and announced that he's no longer representing the woman citing "irreconcilable differences" with his client.
