ASAP Bari Hit With Sexual Assault Lawsuit
Earlier this year, a video went viral after A$AP Bari was shown pulling a blanket off a woman as she lay in bed naked. He was shown hitting her behind and yelling expletives at her as she repeatedly asked him to stop. As a result of the clip, Bari is being hit with a lawsuit now.
According to TMZ, the anonymous woman, who is going by "Jane Doe" in the lawsuit, is suing Bari for sexual assault, and wants more than $1 million.
The lawsuit says that the woman is suing the A$AP Mob member after he reportedly entered a London hotel room where she was sleeping and yelled, "You fucked my assistant, now you are going to fuck me."
The now-deleted video previously showed Bari ripping the cover off the woman to expose her naked body, telling him, "No" as another person in the room recorded the scene. Doe reportedly ran to the bathroom before Bari allegedly yelled, "I'm going to fuck you, you are going to suck my dick."
The woman claims that after she begged Bari to let her go, in fear that she would be raped, the Mob member threw her out of the hotel room into the hallway naked. She then recalls reporting the incident to the hotel's security, who called the cops. The lawsuit says that authorities reportedly told Bari to delete the video from his phone, but there's no confirmation as to why they asked him to delete it, or if that truly happened.
In the rest of the lawsuit, Jane Doe says that Bari allegedly attacked her because she rejected him in a nightclub the previous evening, and that his attorney pressured her to release a joint statement claiming that no assault occurred. She reportedly refused at the time, and is now seeking over $1 million in damages.
