AceShowbiz - Nelly sprung into action when an unexpected object was tossed at him. After his head was hit by an object during his recent club appearance, the "Hot in Herre" rapper quickly raced up the club's stairs to confront the offender.
On Tuesday, April 12, TMZ released footage that saw the "Dilemma" spitter in E11EVEN Miami, where he was vibing out to Sheck Wes' "Mo Bamba" with his entourage. At one moment, it could be seen that someone from the floor above threw something that hit him in the head.
After looking up to the balcony level, Nelly made a running dash up the stairs to address the person who threw the object, which could have been a piece of ice, at him. According to the outlet, Nelly's entourage and club security intervened to stop the situation from escalating further.
Later in the evening after things deescalated Nelly took the stage to perform. The 47-year-old hip-hop artist performed fellow STL native Chingy's 2003 hit "Right Thurr". He seemed to enjoy his time while spitting the track.
Shortly after TMZ released the footage, many social media users ridiculed him. "Too old to be beefing in the club like a child," one person tweeted. Another Twitter user wrote, "Lol no one scared of Nelly."
The club outrage came a little over a month after Nelly accidentally leaked an old video of a woman performing oral sex on him. In the said clip, Nelly, whose real name is Cornell Iral Haynes Jr., was not visible as he was receiving oral sex from a woman. However, he could be heard moaning in the background.
Shortly after becoming a trending topic on Twitter for the raunchy video, Nelly issued an apology that read, "I sincerely apologize to the young lady and her family, this is unwanted publicity for her/them." He went on to insist that the sexually explicit content "was an old video that was private and never meant to go public."
