(AllHipHop News) While most of the nation is currently processing high-profile sexual misconduct cases against comedy legend Bill Cosby and Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, Kanye West is standing by another man accused of illegal sexual behavior. Ye took to Instagram to defend A$AP Bari.
The G.O.O.D. Music leader wrote:
> there’s no way I would have the number 1 record in the world without this man here. He broke me out of my pretentious rich n*gga shell. Bari challenged me when no one else did and when he got in trouble I was scared to say he was my friend just like I did with xxx and that was some p*ssy sh*t on my part. I let the perception and the robots control me. That’s the true sunken place. Bari I appreciate your perspective and vision. You brought me closer to Rocky too. Jedis never let perception and cancel culture get between them.
Earlier this year, Jabari "A$AP Bari" Shelton was reportedly arrested for sexually assaulting an unnamed woman at a London hotel in July 2017. The accuser also sued the VLONE founder for $1 million after claiming the footage of the alleged attack was posted online.
Bari has denied leaking the video. The A$AP Mob member is said to be counter-suing "Jane Doe" for defamation and civil extortion.
