A$AP Rocky Sued After Slapping Fan
Here’s a little public service announcement: If you are a performer, it’s best you don’t slap your fans.
In September 2013, rapper A$AP Rocky was charged with a misdemeanor and a summary charge after slapping a fan, causing her to fall to the ground. The Philadelphia District Attorney’s office confirmed to HipHollywood last year that based on the evidence, they charged Rakim Mayers, the rapper’s legal name, with simple assault and harassment.
Lisamarie Wade filed a private criminal complaint, claiming that during the Made in America concert Philadelphia, A$AP was walking through the crowd when several people grabbed his shirt. That’s when the rapper turned around and allegedly hit the woman. Wade eventually withdrew the complaint after she couldn’t find the rapper to serve him … But now, the fight is back on and Wade is suing the rapper .
According to documents, obtained by TMZ, Rocky’s slap caused a number of ailments “which interfere with her ability to enjoy society with her minor child as a young, single mother.”
Wade is suing at least $75K for damages.
