A Swedish court on Friday ordered that U.S. rapper A$AP Rocky be held in custody for up to two more weeks while prosecutors investigate his part in a brawl in Stockholm.
The 30-year-old performer, producer and model, was arrested early on Wednesday along with two members of his entourage and his bodyguard, in connection with a fight in the city center on Sunday.
Stockholm district court said a judge agreed to prosecutors’ request to extend his detention on suspicion of assault – giving them until July 19 to press charges.
The rapper denied assault and would appeal against the extended detention.
A$AP, best known for his 2011 debut album ‘Live.Long.A$AP’, was arrested hours after performing at a hip hop festival in Sweden’s capital on Tuesday night.
His detention has already forced the cancellation of shows in Norway and Poland.
He was also due to play in Dublin on Friday and London on Sunday.
