But A$AP, 33, has suffered a fair share of difficulties even prior to his relationship with Rihanna, 34.


In July of 2012, the record producer was arrested in New York after getting in an altercation with two people who attempted to take pictures of him on the street.

The soon-to-be father was taken into custody after the dispute, which began verbal but ended with “unnamed victims suffering bruises and cuts, with one requiring treatment at a hospital,” according to MTV.

A$AP Rocky, formally known as Rakim Mayers, and a fellow perpetrator were booked for the encounter, and also for attempted robbery for grabbing one of the victim’s cameras during the incident..

Then, in December of that year, the rapper pled guilty to attempted grand larceny for the streetfight.

The A$AP Mob member also faced counts of attempted robbery in the second degree and assault, but due to his guilty plea, the charges were dropped.

He received three days of community service and a $250 fine.


In July of 2014, A$AP Rocky had another run-in with the law, after he allegedly slapped fan Lisamarie Wade at the Made in America Festival.

The music producer was hit with a lawsuit after he reportedly smacked her so hard that she fell to the ground.

The altercation supposedly occurred as the performer made his way through the crowd.

After the incident, Lisamarie reported that she suffered from “muscle spasm, migraine headaches, intense pain that radiates from her shoulders and into her arms and fingers and exacerbation of pre-existing conditions,” due to the slap.

She later filed criminal charges against the rapper, but the case was dismissed after a state witness failed to appear.


In 2015, A$AP was sued by his manager Eugene “Geno” Sim for allegedly not paying his commissions.

Eugene originally asked for $1.7million from the rap star, but shortly after Rocky counter-sued the manager for breach of contract.

The singer claimed that his agent disclosed details of his finances and private life to a third party.

He asked the judge to find their contract void, but their case dragged on for years afterward.

By 2019, Eugene demanded that the court case reach its end with the judge awarding him $316,514.

But A$AP fought back, asking that the trial continue.

In September of that year, the pair finally reached a deal to drop their lawsuits.

According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Eugene told the judge they were dismissing all claims against one another.


But that wasn’t the end of legal troubles for A$AP Rocky, who by January of 2019 had already gotten in another scuffle.

During the Toronto stop of his Injured Generation Tour, the rapper got into an altercation with a group of people outside the venue.

In a brief video clip, the Harlem native could be seen holding a man’s face down on the ground with a bottle of champagne in the other hand.

A$AP yelled at the victim as his cohort Playboi Carti smashed a bottle of Hennessey on the ground in anger.


Just seven months later, Rihanna’s baby daddy was arrested after a Stolkholm streetfight.

During the July 2019 incident, a man was allegedly punched and cut with a broken bottle.

Police in the Swedish capital said the rapper was involved in the altercation outside of a burger restaurant.

At the time, TMZ posted a video of a man resembling A$AP throwing a person to the ground before he and a group of people punched and kicked him in the head.

The rapper spent most of July behind bars after performing in the European city for SMASH Festival.

Three weeks after the fight, A$AP was found guilty of assault.

By August 2nd, he was freed to return to the states.


On April 20, A$AP Rocky was arrested after landing in Los Angeles following a trip to Barbados with his pregnant girlfriend Rihanna.

The rapper was handcuffed upon stepping off his private plane on Wednesday, in connection to a November 2021 shooting,  NBC News revealed.

According to the outlet, the LAPD had been investigating the rapper for a shooting that occurred on November 6.

After surviving the incident, the victim reportedly claimed to police that A$AP Rocky and two other people came up to him with a handgun.

The victim also alleged that Rihanna’s boyfriend shot at him multiple times, with one bullet possibly grazing his left hand.

The LAPD later confirmed on social media on Wednesday that Rakim Mayers, aka ASAP Rocky, was arrested in connection to the November shooting that took place in the Hollywood area.

A$AP and Rihanna announced their pregnancy on January 31, 2022, and should welcome their first child within the next few weeks.
