On Monday, Judge M.L. Villar ruled that A$AP Rocky will have to stand trial for an alleged Los Angeles shooting. The rapper has been accused of firing a gun at a former friend in front of the W. Hotel in Hollywood on November 6, 2021. Rocky plead not guilty to two felony counts of assault with a semiautomatic firearm.

The 35-year-old musical artist is being supported through the legal case by his girlfriend, Rihanna, according to a source speaking with Entertainment Tonight.

“Rihanna and A$AP are a team and will always support each other,” said the insider.

Rihanna and Rocky have been in a romantic relationship since 2020 and have two sons together, Rza and Riot. Rza was born in May of 2022, and Rihanna revealed she was expecting again while performing at the Super Bowl Halftime Show in February 2023. Riot joined the family in August of this year.

“Rihanna and A$AP always put family first and are both very hands-on parents,” the source explained, adding that they are trying to keep the trial from disturbing their home life for the kids.

A Los Angeles detective testified on Monday that surveillance footage from the night of the alleged crime shows a man resembling A$AP carrying a gun. The victim, Terell Ephron, says he returned to the scene and found bullet casings himself, rather than the officers on the case. Ephron states he received minor injuries during the supposed incident, including grazed knuckles.

Before his court date, Rocky enjoyed a weekend in Las Vegas promoting his F1 x Puma collaboration. During an interview with Complex, he was asked about collaborating on fashion with Rihanna in the future, but Rocky suggested they work best on other things.

“I think we do a real great job at collaborating making children,” he said. “I think that’s our best creation so far. Nothing’s better than that out there, any design.”
