ASAP Rocky Cancels July Concerts Due to Fight Arrest: Report
It looks as though A$AP Rocky's legal plight has just cost him several show dates.
Speaking to the Sónar Festival organizers today (July 10), the rapper's management said that the Harlem rapper would be forced to cancel his remaining European shows due to his July 1 arrest for suspicion of assault.
"A$AP Rocky is being detained in a Swedish jail for an unknown period of time for acting in self-defense during an altercation that took place," says Rocky's rep, referencing the fight Rocky got into after an altercation with two men on June 30. "Due to this unfortunate situation he is forced to cancel his European festival and tour dates in July.”
This news arrives two days after it was reported that Rocky's request for an appeal was denied by Sweden's Supreme Court. Rocky is being detained by Swedish authorities because they believe he's a flight risk, and although Rocky's attorney disagrees with the assessment, the Supreme Court ultimately concurred and found no reason to review the case.
Rocky is currently set to be locked up for at least the next two weeks. At the end of that period, there will be a new hearing to determine whether or not he will be released before the start of his trial.
