Nelly Gets Punched at Super Bowl Party

NellyRapper Nelly hasn’t had a hit out in a while, but he managed to score one Super Bowl weekend. According to The New York Post, on Friday evening (Feb. 5) the St. Louis rapper was punched in the face by mistake when he attempted to break up a fight between his bodyguards and bouncers at Miami’s LIV nightclub at the Fontainebleau.

As Nelly was about to take the stage at the Pre-Super Bowl party “his security appeared to get into an argument with the hotel’s security staff,” a source said. “Nelly got in the middle and got punched by mistake. Then it spilled out of the back door and continued outside.” No other information has been released reporting any further injuries.

He conducted interviews with stars such as Jermaine Durpi,, Ne-Yo, Serena Williams and Terrell Owens. Check out footage from Nelly holding it down as an ESPN reporter after the jump.
