Rihanna Supports A$AP Rocky at First Performance Since Arrest

Rihanna Supports A$AP Rocky at First Performance Since Arrest

Less than two weeks after his arrest at LAX, A$ap Rocky is getting back to his music.

The rapper returned to the stage to perform at the 2022 Smoker's Club Fest following his arrest for involvement in a November shooting, marking his first performance since the incident.

A$ap Rocky was first detained upon arriving in Los Angeles when he was returning from a vacation to Barbados with his girlfriend, Rihanna, who is currently pregnant with the couple's first child.

Law enforcement reported that Rihanna was with Rocky at the time of his arrest, but neither have made a statement regarding the event. Now, it seems the singer is sticking with her boyfriend, as she was seen backstage at his most recent concert.

Rocky performed to an energized crowd in a set complete with pyrotechnics. Fans spotted Rihanna watching from the side of the stage, and even caught her dancing to a few of his hits.

Police report that Rocky had been "under investigation" after a victim came forward alleging that he "approached him with a handgun on the street." He added the rapper "shot at him three to four times" and that "one of the bullets grazed his left hand."

Rocky was released from jail three hours after posting his $550,000 bond. Many fans wondered if his arrest would impact his relationship with Rihanna, but the two stay united, as they were also spotted stepping out for dinner together.

The couple did not attend the 2022 annual Met Gala, to the disappointment of many fans. It is unlikely Rocky's arrest played a part in the decision, seeing that Rihanna is in her third trimester and must restrict travel.
