After being released from jail Saturday (Oct. 7), Nelly shared his side of the story on Twitter, telling fans that he is "beyond shocked" and "completely innocent" in regard to rape allegations.

The rapper, whose real name is Cornell Iral Haynes Jr., was arrested and questioned earlier in the day after a woman called 911 to report being sexually assaulted by Nelly on his tour bus following a Friday night (Oct. 6) concert in Auburn, Washington, police said in a statement.

"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 tweeted Saturday afternoon.

"I do want to apologize to my loved ones for the embarrassment and for putting myself in a situation where I could be victimized by this false and defaming allegation," he continued.

The Grammy winner also shared gratitude for his fans' "unwavering support," writing, "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."

Nelly is expected to appear at his Saturday night show in Ridgefield, Washington, according to his attorney, Scott Rosenblum.

Rosenblum told the Associated Press in an email: "Our initial investigation clearly establishes this allegation is devoid of credibility and is motivated by greed and vindictiveness. I am confident, once this scurrilous accusation is thoroughly investigated, there will be no charges. Nelly is prepared to address and pursue all legal avenues to redress any damage caused by this clearly false allegation."
