Video: Nelly Involved in Argument While Gambling in Connecticut Casino
Thursday 6th February 2020
AceShowbiz - Nelly seemingly didn't really have a pleasant visit in Connecticut. The rapper was caught in camera going on an epic rant while gambling at the Mohegan Sun casino in the city.
In a video that obtained by TMZ, he was seen getting into an argument with other players and an employee. It appeared that the "Country Grammar" star was complaining about the situation while he played at a Texas Holdem table.
A source told the news outlet that the 45-year-old Grammy winner confronted another gambler whom he claimed didn't know how to play, prompting a shouting match between the two. "He's talking about his balls 'cause I said, 'You don't know how to play,' and you said, 'Yo get under my nuts.' So I'm wrong?" Nelly is heard asking the employee.
"I didn't hear any of this," the pit boss responded to Nelly. "I'm telling you what he said," Nelly said, to which the employee told him to "calm down." The supervisor could be heard saying to the hip-hop entrepreneur, "Just stop. Alright? Enough's enough."
That further irritated Nelly as he said, "Expected you to be on their side," seemingly accused of the employee of racism. Meanwhile, the other player decided to just walk away, saying, "I'm ready to go. I don't want to be at this table anymore. I don't want to play my hand anymore."
As the man walked, he told Nelly, whose real name is Cornell Haynes, to "get under my nuts." Firing back, Nelly said, "Get off my nuts, bro."
In related news, Nelly was recently added to the Kansas State Fair list of grandstand acts. The "Ride Wit Me" spitter is set to perform at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, September 19, at the Kansas State Fair's grandstand. Meanwhile, "The X-Factor" contestant Willie Jones will serve as his opening act.
