A$AP Rocky was arrested at Los Angeles International Airport as he and Rihanna were returning from Barbados for his alleged involvement in a 2021 shooting. According to The Sun, a source close to the couple says the very pregnant Rihanna has been extremely emotional in the wake of the incident. The couple was supposedly expected to hold a baby shower on Wednesday night (April 20) but was canceled.
“She’s heavily pregnant and these are very serious accusations,” they said. “It’s a nightmare scenario for her. Rihanna was very, very upset and stressed by Rocky’s arrest. It’s not the best time for her to be on such an emotional rollercoaster.”
A$AP Rocky has been under investigation by the Los Angeles Police Department over a shooting that took place in the Hollywood area last November. The victim of the shooting told police Rocky approached him with a handgun on the street and shot him three to four times, with one of the bullets grazing his left hand.
The LAPD issued a statement regarding the incident that read, “On November 6, 2021, around 10:15 p.m., an argument between two acquaintances occurred in the area of Selma Avenue and Argyle Avenue, in the Hollywood area. The argument escalated and resulted in the suspect firing a handgun at the victim. The victim sustained a minor injury from the incident and later sought his medical treatment. Following the shooting, the suspect and two additional males fled the area on foot.”
Shortly after Rocky’s arrest, he posted $550,000 bail and was released. Police reportedly used a battering ram to collect evidence from his L.A. home, but it’s unclear what they discovered. Rocky is expected back in court on August 17.[via]
