ASAP Rocky Is Reportedly Being Held In 'Inhumane' Conditions In Sweden

Video clips posted by the rapper on Instagram and entertainment website TMZ show him and his team being followed by two young men, and a subsequent altercation on a street. He is being held for two weeks while prosecutors decide whether or not to charge him with aggravated assault, and while he's waiting, the conditions are reportedly "inhumane", as TMZ notes.

Some Swedish fans found out that he is allegedly being housed at Kronobergshäktet in Stockholm, and shared some photos of the facility. Additionally, information suggests that Rocky is forced to sleep on a yoga mat without blankets provided. What's more, the cell next to his holds a man with severe mental issues who reportedly bangs his head on the concrete on a nightly basis and spreads feces throughout his cell.

We're told the facility is filthy and "disease ridden". Yet, once the official from the American Consulate arrived at the detention center, the meeting, like his appeal to the Swedish Supreme Court, was denied.

The Supreme Court rejected Rocky's plea for bail.

A$AP Rocky remains behind bars over his alleged involvement in a Stockholm street brawl. The rapper is reportedly at risk of losing up to $1.7 Million and is facing up to 6 years in prison.

According to A$AP Ferg, who spoke out about the case on his IG page, Rocky is now being held in solitary confinement and is not allowed any visitors or phone calls. The site points out that this is a violation of the Vienna Convention for Consular Relations treaty (signed by both Sweden and the U.S.), which grants foreign arrestees a visit from a U.S. Consulate official.

Witnesses say that a woman stepped in an accused one of the men of grabbing her butt earlier, which is when Rocky and his crew started fighting the men.
