A$AP Rocky has been accused of shooting his musical “Mob” pal A$AP Relli months after he was linked to an alleged attack in Los Angeles.
In April, Rocky – born Rakim Mayers – was arrested in connection with a November 2021 shooting. Up until that point, the altercation had not been reported.
At the time of the arrest, Rocky had been in LAX, having returned from a trip with his then-pregnant partner, Rihanna.
A new development in the case has led to A$AP Relli, Rocky’s former friend and colleague at hip-hop collective A$AP Mob, claiming to be Rocky’s alleged victim.
Lawyers for Relli, whose real name is Terell Ephron, said Rolling Stone that he will sue Rocky in civil court for “caused irreparable damage to his career in the entertainment industry” after the Los Angeles shooting.
Relli’s legal representatives, Jamal Tooson and Brian Hurwitz, say Rocky lured Relli to a central location in Hollywood with an apparent plan to “discuss a disagreement between the two.”
Lawyers claim Rocky arrived with a semi-automatic pistol.
The indictment continues: “Upon arrival at the scene, a conversation ensued during which, without provocation, warning or justification, A$AP Rocky produced the pistol and deliberately fired multiple shots at Mr. Ephron.”
Relli claims that he received “multiple death threats and irreparable damage to his career in the entertainment industry” as a result of the incident.
The Independent has reached out to A$AP Rocky representatives for comment.
