A$AP Rocky is reportedly being sued for allegedly slapping a female fan.

Lisamarie Wade claims that the rapper slapped her when he went into the crowd during his set at last year's Made In America festival in Philadelphia. Wade is seeking $75,000 (£43,938) in damages, writes TMZ.

A spokesperson for A$AP Rocky has not yet returned NME's request for comment.

Wade claims that the slap made her unable to "enjoy society with her minor child as a young, single mother."

A$AP Rocky recently appeared at London's Lovebox festival alongside MIA and Nas and he also joined Danny Brown onstage during his Eminem support slot at Wembley Stadium on July 12. A$AP made the unannounced guest appearance by joining the rapper to perform '1 Train', the orginal of which features on last year's 'Long.Live.A$AP' album.
