For about a month, ASAP Rocky was suspected of assault in custody in Sweden. In the meantime, he was released and arrived in the United States. This must obviously be celebrated – but not with a dissolute party, but with a religious service.
The American rapper ASAP Rocky apparently celebrated with Kanye West his release from a Swedish prison. The musician, who was released this weekend after a month in jail, was reportedly seen by US magazine "People" at the West Sunday ceremony. Kim Kardashian's husband holds a religious ceremony once a week in California.
Video clips on social networks show ASAP Rocky in conversation with Kendall Jenner, Kanye West's sister-in-law, among others. Both were told in 2017 a short romantic relationship.
ASAP Rocky arrived in the United States on Saturday morning. Friday, he was to appear in Stockholm in court. He then jumped straight into a private plane, which brought him back to his homeland. In early July, the rapper was arrested in Sweden after having a palpable confrontation with a young man of 19 years. He was later charged with assault.
Judgment of August 14
The verdict of the Swedish judge is still pending, it should be announced on August 14th. ASAP Rocky was originally in Sweden for a two-day hip-hop festival when the incident occurred. Since then, he claims to have been a victim of attackers and simply defended himself with his friends. The other side claims that the trio abused a 19-year-old with kicks.
Kanye West and Kim Kardashian have been trying to help their friend by using their links with the White House. US President Donald Trump then telephoned Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Löfven. Stockholm emphasized the independence of the Swedish judiciary. The government should not interfere in legal affairs. In Sweden, everyone is equal before the law. This is also true for rappers.
