American rapper A$AP Rocky charged in shooting

American rapper A$AP Rocky was charged Monday with allegedly shooting a former friend in Hollywood last year.

The 33-year-old singer, whose real name is Rakim Mayers, faces two counts of assault with a semi-automatic weapon, the Los Angeles district attorney’s office said.

Mayers allegedly pointed the gun at the former friend during a fight in November.

In a subsequent confrontation between the two, he would have shot him twice, causing a “minor wound”, according to the police.

Mayers is due to appear again Wednesday in a Los Angeles court.

The author of “Praise the Lord (Da Shine)” was arrested for the incident at Los Angeles International Airport in April, while arriving from Barbados on a private flight.

US media reported that he was on the island with his pregnant girlfriend, Rihanna.

The “Diamonds” and “Umbrella” hitmaker gave birth to a boy on May 13 in Los Angeles.

In an interview with GQ magazine published in May 2021, Mayers said of Rihanna: She is the “love of my life.”

Born in New York, Mayers was previously arrested in Stockholm in 2019 following a street fight.

He was held in custody in Sweden for more than a month in an incident that attracted attention and benefited from a suspended sentence.
