Nike cuts ties with A$AP Bari after sexual assault allegations

The A$AP Mob founder has lost a big fashion partnership.

Nike has ended its relationship with A$AP Bari after video footage surfaced of the VLONE designer and A$AP Mob co-founder allegedly sexually assaulting a woman.

Complex reports that a Nike rep has said, "We can confirm we are no longer working together."

The video was originally posted in recent weeks, and showed Bari telling a woman "you fucked my assistant, now you're going to suck my dick." Bari released a statement that read, in part, "Comments about myself or anyone being detained or arrested are false. We have resolved this issue amicably among all parties as adults. We were friends before this and will remain friends afterwards."

The A$AP Mob has seemed to begin speaking about the incident as well. A$AP Rocky reportedly called Bari a "bitch" during a show in Long Beach, and A$AP Mob affiliate Playboi Carti commented on the incident during a recent performance in Santa Ana.

"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. 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."

Bari has not spoken on social media since the statement above.
