Intimate Video Posted on Nelly’s Instagram Stories


Getty A racy video was posted to Nelly's Instagram Stories.

On February 8, 2022, Nelly began trending on social media after an intimate video was posted to his Instagram Stories — and then quickly removed.

The video, posted on the rapper’s Instagram account with more than 3 million followers, showed a woman giving a man oral sex. The man’s face was not visible in the video, which appeared to be taken with a camera phone held by the male involved in the sexual act. According to Love B Scott, the male moaning in the video, which was about one minute long, sounded like Nelly.

There was no description with the video, nor did Nelly post anything to Instagram after the video was removed.

Heavy has reached out to Nelly’s rep for comment and has not yet heard back. He did, however, release an apology via TMZ.

“I sincerely apologize to the young lady and her family, this is unwanted publicity for her/them. This was an old video that was private and never meant to go public,” Nelly’s told TMZ.

The outlet reported that Nelly may have been hacked and “his team” is “concerned more of Nelly’s private content may also end up online.”

Nelly Was Giving an Interview When the Post Went Viral, According to Barstool Sports

According to Barstool Sports, Nelly was in an interview with Kevin Hart at the time the racy video went viral. During the interview on the KFC Radio podcast, Nelly looks down at his phone and says, “Oh God,” and then starts laughing. It’s unknown if Hart saw any of the video, but he appeared to look over at Nelly’s phone, and he also started laughing.

“You can see the exact moment Nelly realized his sextape was going viral during his interview,” Barstool Sports tweeted along with the video.

Nelly didn’t say anything about the video and carried on the podcast interview as normal.

People Quickly Took to Twitter to Discuss the Video

It didn’t take long for the racy video to be deleted, but numerous people saw it and some even recorded it and posted it on other sites. Several people took to Twitter to react to the video and to post memes and jokes about it.

“Ohh snap! it looks like #Nelly accidentally posted a lil video to his Instagram story,” one person tweeted.

“Never thought I would see Nelly getting head down my timeline,” another tweet read.

“I didn’t expect to see Nelly’s d*** this year,” a third person wrote.

“I was gonna say. Nelly gotta be 40+. A lot of these celebs don’t know how to work Instagram. … It could be a mistake,” someone else commented.

There were also several NSFW comments about the contents of the video, with some people critiquing the woman and others sharing their opinions on Nelly’s size.

Shortly after the video went viral, Nelly’s ex-girlfriend’s name also started trending on Twitter. Nelly dated Ashanti for about 10 years, according to Essence, but the two split in 2014.

“I think sometimes when people have their own insecurities it allows them to act out of character. I’ve been betrayed. Again, you just have to grow. You have to grow up and accept responsibilities for the things that you do. I’m not a big fan of people being cowards. I think it’s really important to know yourself and understand what you want and get it,” Ashanti said during an interview on “The Meredith Vieira Show” in 2015, according to Us Weekly.
