A$AP Rocky and Rihanna are happy parents of a newborn son, but he has more things to worry about. After getting snitched on, Rocky is dealing with the ramifications of shooting one of his associates.

The rapper is now facing criminal assault charges for that shooting in Hollywood, one which allegedly took place in November 2021. He allegedly fired a couple of shots at a former friend, Terell Ephron, aka A$AP Relli,

TMZ reports that Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón announced on Monday that his office has charged the rapper with two counts of assault with a semiautomatic firearm. It is alleged that Rocky fired that weapon during a heated argument.

Rocky was arrested in April at LAX as he and Rihanna were flying in via a private jet. That was certainly not the homecoming he was looking for.

Relli says he was hit with bullet fragments and suffered injuries. We will have to see how this case progresses, because things are still developing. Keep checking back with Thirsty for more.

Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News opened the door for a new opportunity for Jenkins. With a history in finance, he broke into the journalism game by writing on blogs and other freelance websites before branching into sports and entertainment news. Being in tune with pop culture doesn't mean it has to make sense, but he tries. Favorite bands include any group from Seattle who formed between 1991 and 1999. 5 Ozzfests under his belt and 12 Warped Tours, but his last concert was a bluegrass AC/DC cover band that was not 100% terrible.
