Swedish authorities say two Afghan migrants who pursued A$AP Rocky and his entourage and assaulted his bodyguard are under investigation for molestation.
The Swedish Prosecutor's Office told Page Six the charges did not involve "sexual assault" of "inappropriate touching." And the aggressor is "not the artist but the men who allegedly followed them during the street fight."
The prosecutor said the 2 men are under investigation for violating "the peace of the victim in a sensible manner, for molestation.”
In Sweden, “molestation" is defined as a person who "physically attacks someone or exposes them to disruptive contacts or exposes someone to other ruthless actions."
Rocky, 30, and 2 members of his entourage were arrested on July 3 after they allegedly assaulted the 2 migrants. On July 2, Rocky posted video of the incident on social media. He complained that the 2 men followed him for 4 blocks and hit his bodyguard in the head with a pair of headphones.
"So a few drug addicts [who] are not my fans, we don't know these guys and we didn't want any trouble, they followed us for 4 blocks... Give me a break," he said.
He added, "We don't want to fight with you … We don't want to go to jail."
The ensuing brawl was captured on cell phone video obtained by TMZ. The gossip blog published an edited version of the video that showed the rapper as the aggressor.
Rocky, who was born Rakim Mayers, was reportedly moved to solitary confinement in Kronoberg prison.
In an online petition, Rocky's rep described the prison as "inhumane" without access to "life sustaining food as well as unsanitary conditions." But jail officials deny the allegations.
In a statement to Page Six, prison officials said the facility was recently renovated and the "remand prison is in good condition."
