ASAP Rocky, real name Rakim Mayers, has been found guilty of assault in Sweden.

The rapper was given a suspended sentence, after he already spent a month in custody.

The 30-year-old has also been ordered to pay damages to the victim.

Two members of ASAP Rocky’s entourage, Bladimir Corniel and David Rispers, were found guilty of the same charge.

“The assault has not been of such a serious nature that a prison sentence must be chosen,” the court said in a statement.

“The defendants are therefore sentenced to conditional sentences.”

ASAP Rocky and his co-defendants claimed they had been acting in self-defence against two men who had been following their group.

But the court said the three were “not in a situation where they were entitled to self-defence” and wrote in its verdict that they “assaulted the victim by hitting and kicking him as he lay on the ground.”
