A$AP Rocky arrested at LAX after returning to U.S. from Barbados: Report

A$AP Rocky whose real name is Rakim Mayers was arrested on Wednesday morning (4/20/22) just moments after touching down at Los Angeles International Airport.

The rapper had been returning to the United States after a vacation in Barbados with his pregnant girlfriend, Rihanna. Rocky, who flew on a private jet, was reportedly met by police at the terminal and was taken away in handcuffs.

NBC News says the arrest stems from a largely unreported November 2021 shooting, in which the alleged victim claimed that Rocky approached him on the street with a handgun. The victim told police that Rocky shot at him three to four times and a bullet grazed his left hand.

LAPD made the arrest with assistance from Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations team.

It’s not known when Rihanna is due, but many believe she’s in her third trimester, as the couple announced the pregnancy in January.
