Rapper A$AP Rocky arrested at LA airport in connection with 2021 shooting

- Advertisment -


Rapper A$AP Rocky was taken into custody Wednesday morning at the Los Angeles International Airport in connection with a shooting in Hollywood last year, the authorities said.

The performer, whose real name is Rakim Mayers, was detained on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, the Los Angeles Police Department said in a statement Wednesday.

Mayers, 33, was wanted in connection with a Nov. 6, 2021 shooting after an argument escalated, authorities said. He is accused of firing a handgun at an acquaintance, who sustained a minor injury and later sought medical treatment.

Mayers and two other men ran after the gunfire, police said.

Mayers’s RCA Records publicist and lawyer did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

TMZ and NBC News first reported the arrest and details of the 2021 shooting.

Mayers had been photographed days earlier in Barbados with Rihanna. The high-profile celebrity couple announced in January that they were expecting their first child together, though they haven’t revealed a due date.

Mayers released his last studio album four years ago and, like Rihanna, has become as known for fashion trendsetting as he is for music.

He was the focus of international attention in 2019 after being delayed for nearly a month in Sweden following a street brawl. He was found guilty of assault and given a “conditional sentence” that meant no additional jail time.
