A$AP Rocky has always been at the center of controversy for one reason or another. A few months ago, A$AP was sued by his former friend, A$AP Relii, over an alleged November 2021 shooting. Rocky is asking the court to give him more time for the case in the latest update due to his hectic schedule. 

According to Radar Online, Rocky’s legal team have asked the judge for more time before he’s questioned due to his busy music career and business ventures. A$AP Rocky, who is charged of shooting A$AP Relli in November 2021, has reportedly consented to appear in court on November 16. Relli, on the other hand, insisted that he appear on October 19 and supposedly threatened to seek punishment if he didn’t.

Rocky said Relli and his legal team are being difficult to deal with and have refused to schedule an alternative deposition date. Defending his busy schedule, A$AP Rocky’s lawyer said in a court filing his client is an “award-winning international recording artist, recording executive and music producer,” who in addition to “recording, touring and performing worldwide, oversees several other business ventures including collaborations with national and international brands.”

 “various commitments and obligations substantially impose upon his time and professional schedule.”


Meanwhile, a judge has yet to rule on the matter. A$AP Relli filed a civil lawsuit against A$AP Rocky for assault, battery, negligence and intentional infliction of emotional distress over an alleged November 2021 shooting in Hollywood. Relli claimed he was asked to meet Rocky at a random location, which led to an argument taking place and Rocky firing multiple shots at him, with one striking his left hand.

All of the charges were refuted by the Harlem rapper, who claimed no injuries or losses, “were caused solely, directly and proximately by the negligent and/or intentional acts or omissions” of someone else, as well as Relli’s failure to “exercise reasonable care to avoid the consequences of harm.” We’ll have to wait and see what Travis has in store for us next.
