A$AP Rocky sued by former landlord over damages to his New York City apartment

The Harlem rapper allegedly left the rented property in a state of disrepair

A$AP Rocky is being sued by his former landlord.

During his tenancy, the Harlem rapper informed the landlord of his rented New York City apartment that he wanted to make a few alterations to the residence, agreeing that he would restore it to its original state once he vacated the property.

However, as TMZ reports, Rocky actually left the apartment “in ruins”, with damage rife through the property. A custom walk-in wardrobe was damaged after the 27-year-old turned it into a home recording studio, while he also removed a chandelier and security camera from the premises. The property was also left by Rocky, who vacated in August, with a number of scratches and stains around the apartment.


The landlord of the apartment has now opted to sue the rapper for the damages, asking for $100,000 (approx. £75,000).

Last month, the rapper pulled out of a performance at Leeds Festival at the last minute, citing “travel issues.” He was able to appear at Reading Festival a few days later, however.
