A$AP Rocky alleged shooting victim is A$AP Mob member

Per an exclusive report by XXL, they have been told by A$AP Relli’s attorney that they will be pursuing a lawsuit against A$AP Rocky.

As reported by the publication, the victim of the shooting in 2021 that A$AP Rocky has been accused of has now identified himself publicly as a member of the A$AP Mob, A$AP Relli, and now he plans to sue his former friend over it.

Yesterday, Wednesday, August 10th, Rolling Stone reported that Relli, real name Terell Ephron, had revealed himself to have been the victim in the shooting that occurred in Hollywood, Los Angeles on November 6th, 2021. The publication obtained a statement from Ephron’s attorneys, Jamal Tooson and Brian Hurwitz, and in it, they claim that Rocky had cajoled Relli into meeting him “to discuss a disagreement between the two of them.”

“Unbeknownst to Mr. Ephron, A$AP Rocky was not just planning for a conversation and came armed with a semi-automatic handgun,” it continued. “After arriving at the location, a conversation ensued whereby without provocation, warning, or any justification, A$AP Rocky produced the handgun and intentionally fired multiple shots at Mr. Ephron.”

Relli’s representatives also claim that Relli has received “multiple death threats and irreparable harm to his career in the entertainment industry as a result of this incident,” alongside the physical injuries he suffered. 

A$AP Rocky was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon at Los Angeles International Airport on April 20th in connection to the incident.

At the time of the arrest, the LA Police Department explained in a statement: “On November 6, 2021 around 10:15 p.m., an argument between two acquaintances occurred in the area of Selma Avenue and Argyle Avenue, in the Hollywood area. The argument escalated and resulted in the suspect firing a handgun at the victim. The victim sustained a minor injury from the incident and later sought his medical treatment. Following the shooting, the suspect and two additional males fled the area on foot. Detectives worked diligently to investigate and corroborate the reporting information, which helped identify the suspect(s) involved.”

As of yet, A$AP Rocky‘s camp are yet to comment on the matter, and the rapper’s next court hearing in relation to the shooting is scheduled for August 17th.
