Was The Nelly Rape Scandal Planted To Promote New Show?

I've heard of some absurd publicity stunts, but rape seems too serious of a crime and charge to play with.

(AllHipHop Rumors) Word on the curb is that Nelly and crew may have planted the rape scandal as promotion for a new show that he's featured on.

Blogger Fameolous tweeted,

"Heard the Nelly story is a planted story for the show Platinum Life & it will go away once he and Ms Jackson make their appearances allegedly."

While celebrities do all kinds of publicity stunts, this is not one that I can fathom anyone doing. Even being accused of being a rapist is one of the worst things one could be accused of.

Even if you are acquitted, the stigma will most likely follow you forever, and consequently your reputation will be ruined!

This also doesn't make sense because it would actually deter people from watching the show!

Now I've seen and heard about celebrities doing all kinds of things for publicity, but I don't know about this one. Why would Nelly want to permanently tarnish his reputation after all that he's accomplished?!
