A$AP Rocky has a Swedish angel on his side!
Two women who witnessed the fight involving A$AP Rocky told the Swedish court that they did not see him or his friends hit the 19-year-old boy with a bottle.
One of the women testified that she was eating with her friend at a restaurant in Stockholm on June 30 when they saw A$AP Rocky.
The two women rushed outside to have a photo taken with him but their tracks were quickly put to a holt.
Rocky pleaded not guilty at the start of the trial Tuesday. He says he acted in self-defense when Jafari and another man would not leave them alone. Two other suspects also are charged.
According to Page Six, the woman testified that she heard a bottle being crushed. She could not say whether Rocky’s entourage threw it to the ground or hit Jafari with it.
She also said she didn’t see A$AP Rocky holding a bottle during the interaction.
Her friend testified that she didn’t see anyone hitting Jafari with a bottle.
“Everything happened very quickly. We were scared for our lives,” the first woman testified.
“He (Jafari) was bleeding. (Jafari) showed his injuries on his hand. He also said he had a sore back.”
A$AP Rocky’s fans gathered outside the court chanting “Free Rocky” and playing his music.
The case has drawn the attention of celebrities, including Sean “Diddy” Combs and Justin Bieber. A social media campaign has been pressing for the rapper’s release.
