Back in April, A$AP Rocky was arrested in connection to a November 2021 shooting in which he allegedly shot an unnamed man in the hand. Now, Terell Ephron, aka A$AP Relli, a former member of the A$AP Mob, has come forward as the alleged victim.
Rocky, born Rakim Mayers, was coming back from a vacation with his then-pregnant girlfriend, Rihanna, when police detained him at LAX. He has yet to be formally charged with a crime, but has been listed as a person of interest and is due in court on August 17th. Additionally, Ephron has filed a civil lawsuit against Rocky.
In statement provided to Rolling Stone, Ephron said Rocky asked him to meet that November night “to discuss a disagreement between the two of them.” Yet, “unbeknownst to Mr. Ephron, A$AP Rocky was not just planning for a conversation and came armed with a semi-automatic handgun. After arriving at the location, a conversation ensued whereby without provocation, warning, or any justification, A$AP Rocky produced the handgun and intentionally fired multiple shots at Mr. Ephron.”
Ephron allegedly sustained minor injuries to his left hand, and also claims to have received “multiple death threats and irreparable harm to his career in the entertainment industry” as a result of the shooting.
A$AP Rocky has yet to comment on the shooting incident.
