UPDATE: Nelly's Rape Accuser Will NOT Testify, Wants to Drop the Case


4:20 PM PT -- Nelly's attorney Scott Rosenblum tells TMZ ...the accuser's "reckless accusation, once investigated thoroughly, was exposed for what it was-a fabrication. A fabrication that has caused Nelly and his family to suffer emotionally and financially."

He's not satisfied though, and says he wants a public apology from the woman, and will recommend Nelly consider taking legal action against her.

(TMZ) -- The woman who accused Nelly of rape is refusing to testify, and wants the whole matter dropped ... TMZ has learned.

The woman's attorney says her client has told the Auburn PD in Washington State, and the King County D.A. to "put a halt to the criminal investigation of [Nelly]. She will not testify further in a criminal proceeding against him."

Her attorney says the young woman feels the system has failed her and she can't stand up to a celebrity. "Who will believer her. People are saying horrible things already. She cannot handle this. She is about to break."
