Rapper Nelly has been arrested after a woman accused him of raping her on his tour bus following a concert near Seattle.

Police in Auburn said they arrested the artist after a woman called emergency services to report a sex assault.

The singer strongly denies the allegations and has now been released.

"I have not been charged... therefore no bail was required," he tweeted.

"I was released, pending further investigation."

The singer tweeted that he was "beyond shocked that I have been targeted with this false allegation".

"I am completely innocent," he said. "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, whose real name is Cornell Iral Haynes Jr, was taken into custody on a second degree rape charge.
