  • On Wednesday, ASAP Rocky and two associates were found guilty of assault in a Swedish courtroom. However, the trio received suspended sentences, meaning that the rapper won’t be going back to jail. “The assault has not been of such a serious nature that a prison sentence must be chosen,” the court said in a statement. A judge did order him to pay damages to the 19-year-old victim, Mustafa Jafari. Rocky (real name: Rakim Mayers) was charged with assault after he and his crew got into a fight back in July while in Sweden for a music festival. He spent a month in prison before being released August 2, in a case that made international headlines due to the involvement of celebrities (including President Trump and Kim Kardashian West) and charges that his unequal treatment was racially motivated.
