A$AP Rocky was detained at LAX on Wednesday morning, according to sources, in connection with a shooting that happened in 2021.
Following his well-publicized vacation to Barbados with pregnant girlfriend Rihanna, the “Praise the Lord” rapper was caught at a California airport, according to NBC News.
The Homeland Security Investigations branch of Immigration and Customs Enforcement supported LAPD in effecting the arrest.
An LAPD official has yet to confirm Rocky’s detention. ICE did not reply to a request for comment from Page Six right away.
The Los Angeles Police Department was apparently investigating Rocky, whose true name is Rakim Mayers, for his suspected participation in a shooting on Nov. 6.
The survivor subsequently told investigators that the rapper approached him on the street while strolling with two others, brandishing a handgun. The victim said Mayers shot him three to four times, with one bullet grazing his left hand, according to police investigations.
The filming site had not yet been announced.
Rocky was previously in conflict with the law in Sweden, where he was detained and imprisoned for a month for his participation in a street fight with alleged “drug users.”
Rocky and two members of his crew were ordered to be freed pending the outcome of the high-profile assault case that grabbed President Donald Trump’s attention.
Rocky reminisced on his one-month incarceration in a statement upon his release, calling it a “very painful and humbling experience.”
