(AllHipHop News) A$AP Rocky's mother Renee Black has accused Swedish authorities of "trying to build a case" against her rapper son.
Rocky has been behind bars for three weeks as Stockholm authorities investigate a street scuffle he was involved in, and his lawyer recently alleged Rocky is being kept in appalling conditions.
U.S. President Donald Trump and celebrities including Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have been working to try and get the rapper released, and his mom Renee told Swedish newspaper Expressen she believes there's "no case" against the star.
"(Its) an unnecessary case to begin with. Number one, they are trying to build a case. There is no case," she said. "Everything is on video. They tried to avoid it but they kept being followed as well as harassed. Come on, just ball it up and trash it because that's what it is, trash."
Renee went on to confirm reports that the star is being held in poor conditions and "isn't eating properly," and insisted she's just desperate for him to be released so he can return home.
"I don't even want to think about or say it. I really don't. I don't want to rock any boats," she added. "I don't want to stir up any trouble, anything that is going to cause my son not to be released and be able to come home.
"I'm pleading, I hope that they let my son home. I really do."
Rocky, real name Rakim Mayers, was arrested on July 2. He appeared in court today to plead not guilty over the assault.
