WATCH: Rapper Argues With Casino Pit Boss

Nelly Argued With A Fellow Gambler And Casino Supervisor At Mohegan Sun Casino In Connecticut


Singer, Songwriter, and actor Nelly got into a confrontation with a casino pit boss and fellow gambler last Saturday.

According to a video released by TMZ, Nelly was gambling at Mohegan Sun in Connecticut before another gambler at the table insulted him, telling him to “get under my nuts,” at an Ultimate Texas Hold’em table.

The St. Louis rapper didn’t take kindly to the insult and expected the supervisor to take action. When the supervisor tells Nelly that he didn’t hear the comment, Nelly begins to get loud and starts yelling at the pit boss.

“I told him he didn’t know how to play and he tells me to ‘get under my nuts,’” yelled Nelly at the management. “And I’m wrong? I’m telling you what he said.”

TMZ is reporting that gamblers at the table told the media outlet that insults started “flying” between the gamblers and the pit boss. Ultimately, the police or security were not needed and the incident de-escalated fairly quickly after words were exchanged.

Nelly’s Country Grammar album, released in 2000, has sold over 10 million copies. He was an entrant in the 2007 World Series of Poker main event and has played in events at the former PokerStars Caribbean Adventure as well as on the European Poker Tour.
