Rihanna’s partner, American rapper ASAP Rocky arrested: attack with deadly weapon

The rapper was taken into custody at the Los Angeles airport on Wednesday. ASAP Rocky, who is expecting a child with Rihanna, allegedly shot a friend during an argument.

American rapper ASAP Rocky has been arrested for a shooting incident. Pop superstar Rihanna’s boyfriend was arrested at Los Angeles airport on Wednesday, police said. The charge is assault with a deadly weapon.

Police say the context is a “quarrel between two acquaintances” in Hollywood last November, in which “the suspect shot the victim with a handgun.” The suspect was later identified as ASAP Rocky, whose real name is Rakim Mayers and his stage name is A$AP Rocky. The victim suffered only minor injuries. The rapper and two other men fled after the incident.

Arrest after love vacation

According to celebrity portal “TMZ”, the 33-year-old musician was arrested after flying to Los Angeles on a private jet from Rihanna’s home island of Barbados, where the two were vacationing. As soon as possible Rocky and Rihanna are expecting their first child, the couple announced the pregnancy at the end of January.

This isn’t the first time the rapper has come into conflict with the law. The New York-born musician was arrested in 2019 in the Swedish capital Stockholm after a street fight. He was released after more than a month in custody and later given a suspended sentence for assault.
