The 35-year-old, who is married to Rihanna, a R&B star, and has two children, is facing two counts of semiautomatic firearm assault. The accusations have been refuted by him.
One of the original A$ AP collective members, Terell Ephron, was left slightly hurt following the altercation in Hollywood in November 2021, according to the court.
Ephron, also known as A$ AP Relli, claimed at a hearing last week that the two men’s friendship had deteriorated and that he had abandoned other group members. The group was established in New York in 2008.
He claimed that while Rakim Mayers, also known as A$ AP Rocky, had achieved fame and fortune, other members of the group had fallen into abject poverty and drug use.
The two men fought after one of the group members passed away in a fight that was partially caught on camera.
Mayers allegedly pulled a gun from his pocket and stabbed him in the stomach while yelling,” I’ll kill you right now,” according to Ephron.
Ephron claimed in a later altercation that he had “failedeverybody” but that no one had the guts to tell him.
Ephron added that Mayers had then fired at him, grazing his left hand,” I just wanted him to hear my side.”
On January 8, Mayers, who is currently free on bail, was scheduled for arraignment.
