A$AP Rocky Sued Over Alleged Philadelphia Assault

Lisamarie Wade has sued A$AP Rocky, whom she says assaulted her.

A$AP Rocky has been sued by Lisamarie Wade, according to Courthouse News Service.

Wade, who filed the suit Thursday (July 17) in Federal Court, is suing the A$AP Mob member based on an alleged incident at the Made In America festival in Philadelphia August 2013.

She seeks compensatory and punitive damages for civil assault and battery, intentional and negligent infliction of emotional distress, negligence and premises liability, the story says.

In September, it was reported that A$AP Rocky was walking through a collection of dancing fans who were pulling on his shirt at the Made In America festival in Philadelphia. The rapper then turned around and landed an open-hand slap on the face of the alleged victim, who says she suffered whiplash from the alleged assault. He was charged with misdemeanor simple assault.

A$AP Rocky had been charged with assault before. In July 2012, A$AP Rocky was arrested and sued for assault after a fight between the rapper and two photographers who had been filming the rapper while he was involved in an altercation with another person. That person, reports said, claimed that he saw the Harlem emcee get high in the clothing store, and that Rocky began beating him, before turning his attention to the photographers.

A$AP Rocky struck a plea deal in the criminal case, pleading guilty to attempted grand larceny, with the assault and robbery charges being dropped.

In June 2013, A$AP Rocky appeared to slap a female fan in the face, as seen in a video from the rapper's performance at the Hordern Pavilion in Sydney, Australia.
