Just in! Rapper ASAP Rocky found guilty of assault

ASAP Rocky has been found guilty of assault in Sweden. The verdict was handed down today at Stockholm District Court.

The music star, whose real name is Rakim Athelaston Mayers, and his two friends, who were also found guilty of assault, were handed conditional sentences.

That means that he will not have to return to Sweden to serve any time in jail.

The US star and two of his entourage pleaded not guilty to assaulting a 19-year-old man in Stockholm.

ASAP was detained in the country but had the support of US President Donald Trump and a number of other big-name stars.
