HipHollywood can confirm that rapper A$AP Rocky has been charged with a misdemeanor and a summary charge after slapping a fan in the face.
The Philadelphia District Attorney’s office tells HipHollywood that based on the evidence, they charged Rakim Mayers (the rapper’s legal name) with simple assault (the misdemeanor) and harassment (the summary charge.)
We are told that the victim filed a private criminal complaint earlier this week, claiming that on Saturday during the Made in America concert, A$AP was walking through the crowd when several people grabbed his shirt. That’s when the rapper turned around and allegedly slapped the woman in the face.
The fan sought out police who advised her to file a private complaint with the DA.
