A$AP Rocky is facing an assault charge by a female fan who claims he got violent with her at this weekend’s Made in America concert in Philadelphia.
According to reports, the alleged victim filed a criminal complaint with the District Attorney’s Office today, insisting the rapper slapped her in the face while “trying to make his way through a crowd of dancing fans.”
In the legal documents, the young mom said she suffered whiplash from the open-hand slap. In response, the D.A.’s office decided to charge the Harlem MC with misdemeanor simple assault.
This isn’t the first time A$AP has gotten physical with a concert goer. During a show in Sydney, Australia earlier this summer, video footage shows the “F**kin’ Problems” rapper slapping a fan after she tapped him on the head and blew him a kiss.
