Nelly’s “Hot In Herre” Streams Really Did Spike After Fans Try To Help With IRS Debt!


Following news that Nelly was in debt with the IRS to the tune of $2.5 million, fans (and trolls – though they still helped) made a quick call to action with the trending topic #SaveNelly. Somehow, a plan to stream “Hot In Herre” as much as humanly possible was hatched, with the hopes that the streaming revenue would provide a cushion – if not total relief – for the debt.

Nelly Is NOT Performing In Australia, Despite Faulty Promoter’s Claims

An Australian festival by the name of the Boulevard Tour is claiming that they have Nelly, T-Pain and August Alsina on the bill for Saturday, March 19, but at least one of those artists is calling BS! Nelly’s people have spoken to TMZ, and revealed this is false advertisement and he is in no way affiliated with the show.

So far, no word back from the promoters after TMZ reached out, and things seem even more fishy that neither T-Pain nor August have promoted the show either. Hmm! Check out the flyer in the gallery.
