A$AP Rocky Will Stand Trial in gun charge

No one wants to see Rihanna raising her babies alone, but A$AP Rocky will have to answer to charges that may land him in jail.

A Los Angeles judge ruled Monday that the rapper must stand trial on charges he fired a gun at a former friend back in November of 2021.

“I am certain Rocky will be vindicated of all of this,” the rapper’s lawyer Joe Tacopina said outside the courthouse.

During the hearing, Detective Frank Flores took the stand and new surveillance video was unveiled, in addition to what was shown at the previous hearing earlier this month. In the new footage, two loud pops, which the prosecution team said is the alleged shooting, were heard but not seen.

Flores confirmed he reviewed the footage in his investigation and Rocky, 35, had a gun in his hand during the altercation. Under cross examination, however, he revealed the gun was never recovered. Meanwhile, the two shell casings that were recovered from the scene by Relli (real name Terell Ephron) and turned into police two days later had no fingerprints.

The “Praise the Lord” rapper’s trial is set to begin on Jan. 8.
