ASAP Rocky detained for shooting | Entertainment and celebrity news

A$AP Rocky has been arrested in connection with a shooting.

The 33-year-old rapper – whose real name is Rakim Mayers – was arrested by police when his private plane landed at Los Angeles International Airport on Wednesday (20.04.22) in connection with an alleged incident which occurred around 10.20pm on 6 November.

Rocky’s attorney, Alan Jackson, confirmed that his client was arrested by Los Angeles police.

The victim allegedly told cops that the “Praise the Lord” hitman was walking with two others down the street when he approached him with a handgun. The unnamed victim alleged that the rapper shot him three or four times and believed one of the bullets grazed his left hand.

Rocky was in Barbados with his pregnant girlfriend Rihanna, but it’s unclear if the ‘Diamonds’ hitmaker was with him when he returned to the US from his vacation before his arrest.

The couple’s relationship has come under intense scrutiny in recent weeks following allegations that the rapper was unfaithful to Amina Muaddi.

However, Amina called the speculation “vile”.

She wrote on Instagram earlier this month: “I have always felt that an unfounded lie spread on social media deserved no response or clarification, especially one of such despicable intent – would not be taken seriously. However, in the past 24 hours I have been reminded that we live in a society that is so quick to talk about matters regardless of factual basis and that nothing is off limits, not even during what should be the one of the most beautiful and

the time celebrated is in his life”

The shoe designer went on to say “respect and affection” for Rihanna and A$AP, who she previously worked with.

Amina added: “Therefore, I have to speak because this is not only for me, but also for the people I have great respect and affection for. As Rih continues to live her serene pregnancy life and better dressed and me going back to my business – I wish everyone a beautiful Easter weekend.” (sic)
