After spending a lengthy period in jail, ASAP Rocky is found guilty in the Swedish assault case. He was allowed to leave the country only earlier this month.
Maddy Savage, British journalist, announced on Twitter that Rocky will pay damages that are equivalent to SEK 12,500 (approximately $1,303). He has also been given a suspended sentence alongside paying the 19-year-old victim, Mustafa Jafari.
ASAP Rocky responded to being guilty on Instagram with: “I AM OF COURSE DISAPPOINTED BY TODAY’S VERDICT. I WANT TO SAY THANKS AGAIN TO ALL OF MY FANS, FRIENDS, AND EVERYONE WHO SHOWED ME LOVE DURING THIS DIFFICULT TIME. IMMA KEEP MOVING FORWARD.”
When his trial came to an end, Rocky expressed his extreme gratitude for the support he received from his fans, friends and family. He considers this to be a difficult and humbling period of his life.
“Thank you from the bottom of my heart to all of my fans, friends and anyone across the globe who supported me during these last few weeks,” he said at the time. “I can’t begin to describe how grateful I am for all of you. This has been a very difficult and humbling experience.”
Rocky performed in Anaheim, California for the inaugural Real Street Festival as a comeback from the negative incident that he has been put into.
Tyler the Creator, ASAP Ferg, and YG were among the special guests who popped up during the rapper’s performance.
Rocky was forced to cancel numerous festival appearances while in custody in Sweden in July.
