A$AP Rocky is being held in solitary confinement in Sweden, after authorities arrested him for an alleged assault reportedly captured on video. A Swedish prosecutor filed a request with the Stockholm district court last week to hold Rocky — real name Rakim Mayers — and two associates in a Swedish jail for two weeks while authorities investigate an incident involving Rocky and members of his entourage. Rocky claims the instance was a result of defending himself and claims two Swedish men were stalking him. Footage appears to show A$AP pleading with the two men outside of a restaurant to leave him alone.
A$AP Ferg posted on his Instagram about Rocky’s situation. “He’s in Sweden locked up in solitary confinement with no visit or phone call privileges,” Ferg captioned under a pick of Rocky. “They are trying to keep him there for 2 weeks and if convicted he will be looking at 6 years just for defending himself in a fight. He was no way in form the aggressor in this ordeal. Pray for justice #freeflacko.”
Defense attorney Henrik Olsson Lilja said Rocky and his team “were attacked and he made use of self-defense,” before adding that they would be appealing the ruling.
