Rob,

Can you take another look at this? Here he is with 5'10" Akon, and it looks like Akon may even be at an angle disadvantage in this photo:

Not only is this more than a 1.5" difference, but it's more than a 2" difference. The others are right; Nelly is much closer to 5'7" than he is to 5'9".

Big fan of Nelly. Nelly is somewhere around 5'6-5'7. Most likely 175 pounds since he works out. We are about the same. Muscle weighs more than fat. So if it looks like he is lighter It's Just What the average person would assume. A person 5'7 weighing 160 with majority of fat would appear heavier than Nelly.

@Rob
Wasnt he listed 6'1 here once? I might remember very wrong.
[Editor Rob: not here]

ludacris is never taller than nelly just as neither of them are over 5'7. I was always baffled by some rappers like nelly who one minute look short then appear taller at awards show. did anyone see the BET awards Nelly looked taller than Jaime fox and ive seen them in pictures before and nelly looks noticeably shorter. Or how Kendrick lamar magically drops in T.Is interview just to make him look taller. I love all of them and honestly could care less about there height but some of the things ppl say on here as far as guessing celebrity heights is just way off. Anybody who wants to be in show business is an egotistical maniac so feeljng inferior in anyway causes them mental syndrome. We should take ludas advice and have one more drink (figuratively).

hey rob do you think he is taller than ludacris or 5'7.75?
[Editor Rob: they can look pretty similar to each other]
superman says on 20/Jun/13
after seeing pictures wth ludacris he looks to be 1 nch shorter so i think he is really 5'7, because ludacris is a true 5'8 guy. maybe a downgrade to 5'7.5 or 5'7 flat.thanks
superman says on 17/Jun/13

Can't believe google lists him as 6 foot

In the video "Dilemma" with Kelly Rowland she is wearing sandals and they look about the same height. Kelly Rowland is 5'7.

I've been to nelly's school e.i in missouri and he came in on occaisions. I think honestly the guys like 5.6 1/2 and im a girl 5.7 1/2 and he never looks taller than me. maybe the same height sometimes but never taller. Even so he is sexy as hell, I honestly find (some) short guys attractive like Reggie Bush, and Luda. I would rather be with a man i feel right with than look right with per say. He's definetely not 6 ft and if he is he must've had height surgery since i last seen him.

You type 'Nelly Height' in google you get 183 cm/6ft
CRAZY!!!
[Editor Rob: the difference between this site and others - celebheights is my job, I care about trying to get accurate heights, I don't employ an algorithm that takes heights from any old site and presents them to users as facts ;) How is that better? It isn't, it's insane.

If visitors come here they'll see the guy only claimed 5ft 9 himself...why is google not providing that?

Because it actually involves research...if visitors go with what google presented them, it shows the stupidity of google's data gathering and accuracy - they'll go away thinking the guy might be 6 foot!

He is 5'7 or 5'8, check him standing next to 5'10 adam sandler in "the longest yard"
Greg says on 24/Jan/13
lol, why is he listed at 6 foot?
Silent d says on 22/Jan/13
No way he is 175pounds. That is over 80kg. He never looked that big. He looked probably about 75kg. He always looked 5 foot 8.
