Rihanna’s lover, Rakim Mayers, better known by his stage name, ASAP Rocky, has been released on a $550K bond after his arrest in connection with a 2021 shooting.
The rapper was returning to California from Barbados, where he was on vacation with his girlfriend, Rihanna, before his arrest.
He was arrested on a charge of “assault with a deadly weapon (firearm)” in connection with a shooting in Hollywood last fall, the Los Angeles Police Department said in a statement on Twitter.
The 33-year-old rapper was spotted leaving the Los Angeles Police Department headquarters Wednesday afternoon, April 20 after he was detained by police at Los Angeles International Airport.
It was also reported that police executed a search warrant at the “Praise the Lord” rapper’s Los Angeles home, using a battering ram to enter the property, and leaving with one box of potential evidence.
The case, according to the LAPD, will be presented to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office
