A$AP Bari hit with lawsuit over alleged sexual assault

The woman in the July video has filed a lawsuit against the A$AP Mob associate.

Back in the summer, a disturbing video surfaced online that seemingly showed A$AP Bari sexually assaulting a woman in a bedroom. Now, the A$AP Mob affiliate and head of fashion label VLONE, is being sued by the woman in the video for over $1 million, as TMZ reports.

The woman, who filed the lawsuit as Jane Doe, says that Bari, real name Jabari Shelton, pulled bed sheets off her to expose her in the July 9th incident in a London hotel and yelled, "You f—kid my assistant, now you are going to f—k me." Afterwards, according to the docs, she says she ran into the bathroom crying as Bari continued yelling, "I'm going to f—k you, you are going to suck my d—k," before throwing her naked into the hallway of the hotel. The woman also says that Bari's lawyer "pressured her to release a joint statement saying there was no assault."

In the wake of the video, Nike ended its relationship with Bari. Fellow A$AP Mob members like A$AP Ferg, along with associate Playboi Carti, also condemned him for his action. "I don't support none of that rape shit, fuck all that shit. That shit wack. But at the end of the day, that's my motherfuckin' brother," Carti said during a show in July. When audience members chanted "fuck Bari," Carti responded. "Nah, ain't no fuck Bari bro, that's my brother. But the n_*_a, he did wrong bro."
