A$AP Rocky Sued for Allegedly Slapping Woman at Made in America Festival
A$AP Rocky just got slapped with a lawsuit for allegedly slapping a woman at last year's Made in America festival in Philadelphia. The Harlem rapper reportedly struck a female attendee in the face last September while walking through a crowd at the festival, and he initially faced simple assault charges. The charges were dropped after a state's witness failed to show up in court, but now victim Lisamarie Wade is seeking compensatory and punitive damages in a lawsuit which also names Live Nation, Roc Nation, and the security guards at the event.
Rocky hasn't officially commented on the case, but this isn't the first time he's been in hot water for smacking a female member of a crowd. In June 2013 (a few months before the incident at the center of this lawsuit), video emerged of Rocky slapping a thirsty female concertgoer in Australia. Check out that footage below.
