The claim was first brought to light on Monday (Jan. 10) by the Neighborhood Talk Instagram account. In a video shared online by the platform, the unidentified woman claimed she found a duffle bag filled with $300,000 at a bowling alley that belonged to Nelly. The woman says she then returned the bag to the “Hot In Herre” singer, who awarded her just $100.
The person filming the video then asked the woman what she got for returning the hefty amount of cash.
Underneath the post, Instagram users sounded off about what they would have done in the situation. However, on Tuesday (Jan. 11), Nelly hopped in the post’s comments and denied ever losing a bag of cash in the first place.
So far, neither the woman nor her friends have responded to Nelly’s comment. It’s unclear exactly where the bag of cash was found, but HotNewHipHop reports that it was retrieved from Midtown Bowl, which appears to be located in Atlanta, Georgia. See the initial video and Nelly’s response below.
