New York rapper A$AP Rocky was reportedly the victim of an assault while in Australia while on tour. TMZ reports:
“According to sources way down under … A$AP was at the Pullman Hotel in Auckland around 3 AM local time. He has a concert there Thursday night. We’re told he was getting into an elevator with some girls, and 3 guys wanted to get in also — but A$AP told ’em there was no room left, and then it was on.
We’re told the guys jumped the rapper, punching him in the head and face … while he tried to protect the girls.
Witnesses say the suspects knew who they were dealing with because they were yelling … “F**k A$AP!” Hotel security eventually broke it up until cops arrived and nabbed one suspect — a 35-year-old local who was booked for assault and resisting police.”
Though Rocky sustained minor injury he has yet to cancel any stops on the tour.
