The New York rapper is also being sued by the victim, friend and affiliate A$AP Relli.
While his date night fits with Rihanna continue to impress fans, A$AP Rocky’s legal troubles continue to serve as a shadow. Back in April, we reported that Rocky was arrested at LAX Airport over an alleged November shooting in Hollywood that involved A$AP Relli, which was allegedly on caught video, as well. Just this afternoon, A$AP Rocky was seen exiting a Los Angeles courthouse after pleading not guilty to the shooting.

The incident shook up the A$AP Mob, with A$AP Bari accusing A$AP Relli of snitching from the inner circle to get Rocky arrested. It was also a significant speed bump in the “Praise the Lord” MC’s relationship with R&B superstar Rihanna, as it was an unfortunate ending to their Barbados vacation and almost caused their baby shower to be delayed. As far as his current charges, Rocky is being tried for two counts of assault with a semi-auto firearm. The story goes that the rapper was having an argument with the victim and, in a separate incident, used the weapon he threatened the victim with earlier. A$AP Relli is also undergoing “intensive therapy” after being bombarded with accusations of ratting on Rocky.
