A$AP Rocky had been arrested along with two of his friends in Sweden and later charged with assault. Despite calls for his release, the authorities refused to budge, with the Prime Minister refusing to intervene.
President Trump weighed in too after he was reached out to by Kanye West and Kim Kardashian and he really did come through. He went on rants on Twitter twice and when that didn’t work, he sent a special envoy to monitor proceedings in the US with the message that there could be negative consequences.
Well, after the cases were argued, the court allowed him to leave since it would not really be possible for him to just disappear and would be available should the court rule that he would serve time. He is back in the country, hence the decision to touch base first with Kanye West who has been instrumental to his release.
In a tweet A$AP Rocky posted after his return, he said: “THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART TO ALL OF MY FANS, FRIENDS AND ANYONE ACROSS THE GLOBE WHO SUPPORTED ME DURING THESE LAST FEW WEEKS. I CANT BEGIN TO DESCRIBE HOW GRATEFUL I AM FOR ALL OF YOU.”
