Nelly suffered a slight mishap on stage on Saturday night in Palm Springs, after a fan pulled him off stage while he was performing.
The Just A Dream hit-maker had been mid-song on stage in California and interacted with fans as he walked along the stage high-fiving those in the front row.
But, footage captured by TMZ shows one over eager fan tugging on Nelly’s hand and forcing the rapper to fall forwards off the stage and into the crowd.
Nelly looks a little taken aback by the fall, but doesn’t get mad. Instead, he keeps his cool and tells the fan: ‘You can’t pull me, shorty. I appreciate it, but I’m on the edge of the stage. If you pull me, I ain’t got nowhere to go!’
TMZ reports that Nelly told security not to step in and instead got back up on stage and carried on like ever the professional.
Last year, Nelly found himself facing accusations of sexual assault. A British woman, identifying as Jane Doe, claimed the artist sexually assaulted her in December 2018 following his show in Southend, Essex.
However, the case was dropped in April earlier this year, and Nelly thanked his fans for standing by him.
Nelly issued a statement to Just Jared after Essex police dropped the investigation.
It read: ‘I am very thankful to the UK police for thoroughly investigating the false allegations against me and I am satisfied with the results of this case and the previous one in the US, both driven by the same attorney, both being dropped.
‘I stand with women and real survivors and can’t wait to just focus on what I love, family, music and reconnecting with the fans that have stood by me through these turbulent times.’
