A former A$AP Mob member revealed he’s the man A$AP Rocky allegedly shot in November 2021.
Earlier this year, the 33-year-old rapper was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon. Police didn’t disclose the victim’s identity, but speculation emerged after A$AP Bari accused A$AP Relli of snitching in April.
Months later, A$AP Relli confirmed he’s the alleged victim in a statement to Rolling Stone. He also intends to file a lawsuit against A$AP Rocky.
A$AP Relli, whose real name is Terell Ephron, accused his old friend of luring him to an obscure location in Hollywood to talk about a disagreement. Ephron claimed he suffered minor injuries to his left hand in the shooting.
“Unbeknownst to Mr. Ephron, A$AP Rocky was not just planning for a conversation and came armed with a semi-automatic handgun,” Ephron’s attorneys told Rolling Stone. “After arriving at the location, a conversation ensued whereby without provocation, warning, or any justification, A$AP Rocky produced the handgun and intentionally fired multiple shots at Mr. Ephron.”
A$AP Relli’s attorneys said he’s dealt with “multiple death threats and irreparable harm to his career in the entertainment industry” since the shooting. They believe his lawsuit will likely go to trial.
A court hearing for A$AP Rocky’s criminal case is scheduled for August 17. He was released on a $550,000 bond in April.
