According to a report from TMZ.com, A$AP Rocky had to cancel his entire European festival tour on account of his recent incarceration in a Stockholm, Sweden, jail. The rapper won’t be able to get on stage in a Spanish city on account of the assault charges he was recently hit with.
His management said to reporters from TMZ that the rapper, and ex-boyfriend of Kendall Jenner, won’t be able to get on stage on account of the incident in which he defended himself against attackers after a performance one evening.
Mr. Rocky was scheduled to put on a show at Sonar, a music festival in Barcelona, on the 19th of July, however, they’re now looking to find a replacement for him. He was also supposed to be on stage on Wednesday night in Moscow, however, he’s currently sitting in a jail cell.
Moreover, the entertainer had to cancel shows at the Splash! Festival in Germany as well as concerts in Belgium and Ukraine. He also had another one in Italy on the 17th. As it was previously reported, the rapper is currently being held in a Stockholm jail, and according to his management, in “inhumane conditions.”
Reportedly, one rep said to a US Embassy official said that “walking into that place was like walking into a toilet.” Thus far, Swedish authorities are looking to see if they’ll charge him with aggravated assault as a consequence of the street fight.
Video footage shows Rocky defending himself against men who were bothering him and his team after a performance one evening. Furthermore, the star said the young men were grabbing women and getting into fights with security personnel as well.
Thus far, there have been more and more celebrities and entertainment juggernauts demanding his release, however, Swedish authorities have no intentions to let him out at the moment.
Reports claim the Swedish police are currently evaluating evidence to see whether he’ll continue to stay in the nation until the final stages of the inquiry have been completed.
