A$AP Rocky Sued Over Alleged Assault: Report

A$AP Rocky is being sued for an alleged assault dating back to August 31, 2013.

Lisamarie Wade filed a federal court lawsuit on Thursday (July 17) against A$AP Rocky for an incident that occurred at last year's Made in America festival in Philadelphia, according to Courthouse News Service via HipHopDX.

In September 2013, reports surfaced stating A$AP Rocky faced an allegation of assault.  Rocky – born Rakim Mayers –  was reportedly walking through a crowd of fans during his Made in America set. Fans were dancing and pulling on his shirt. He reportedly turned around and slapped Wade in the face.

Previous charges from Wade were dismissed in May after a state's witness didn't appear at trial.

In the 2014 lawsuit, Wade claims she's still suffering a year later, with "muscle spasm, migraine headaches, intense pain that radiates from her shoulders and into her arms and fingers, and exacerbation of pre-existing conditions." TMZ reports that Wade is suing for close to $75,000 in damages.

Wade is also suing Rocky's entourage, Live Nation, Roc Nation, security employers and employees, and Made in America's event organizers and subcontractors.
