ASAP Rocky To Face Trial Early 2024 for Firing Gun at Friend

ASAP Rocky To Face Trial Early 2024 for Firing Gun at Friend 

Rapper ASAP Rocky, real name Rakim Athelaston Mayers, is accused of shooting his friend ASAP Relli several times in 2021 during a fight. Now, a trial is scheduled for January 2024.

Judge M.L. Villar reportedly declared during the preliminary hearing in Los Angeles that there was enough evidence to try him, according to People Magazine.

ASAP Relli, a former member of the A$AP Mob, testified during the first trial on Monday that he was struck by bullet fragments after Rocky fired his gun at him during an argument. After that, he said, he went to a hospital in New York to get help.

Relli’s left index, middle, and ring fingers had small areas of raw, bloody skin on their knuckles, as seen in an image of his minor injuries that was on display in the courtroom during the hearing.

Rocky’s childhood friend Relli revealed more information about the assault following their November 2021 argument.

He narrated, “He grabbed me on my collar. He was shaking me. I tried to push him off, get his hands off. That’s when Rocky pulled a gun from his waistband. It was a standard clip and a semi-automatic black gun. He pointed it toward my stomach, ‘I’ll kill you right now. Oh, he was angry,’ he continued. ‘He had the gun pressed up against me, to my chest, then head. I said, ‘Shoot it’ because I was mad, why you bring a gun if you’re not going to use it?’ I would never bring a weapon. Not in that situation. Rocky turned around and shot at me.”

Following the hearing, Rocky’s defense team adamantly maintained the rapper’s innocence, saying the rapper refuted every allegation made by his boyhood friend. They emphasized that Rocky had nothing to do with Relli’s injuries.

Rocky’s legal team stated, “Defendant generally denies each and every allegation of the complaint and specifically denies that Plaintiff has been damaged in any amount or in any way as a result of any act or omission of the answering defendant. The injuries and/or damages complained of in the complaint, if any, were caused solely, directly, and proximately by the negligent and/or intentional acts or omissions of persons other than the answering defendant.”

The rapper entered a not guilty plea to the two charges of assault with a firearm in spite of everything Relli had said. In January 2024, the two will go to court to square off.
