A$AP Rocky must stand trial over charges he fired a gun at a friend.


The 35-year-old rapper, real name Rakim Mayers, could be jailed for nine years if he’s found guilty.


An LA judge made the call on Monday during a preliminary hearing attended by Mayers, who shares two children with Rihanna.


Prosecutors claim that two years ago the A-lister fired a handgun at Terell Ephron.


Mayers has pleaded not guilty.


He is facing two felony accounts of assault with a firearm, BBC reports.

Ephron was part of Mayers’ hip-hop collective A$AP Mob and went to high school in New York with the Grammy-nominated rapper.


In a separate lawsuit, Ephron – known as A$AP Relli – has claimed that he’s a victim of emotional distress, assault and battery and negligence.


Ephron claims he was ‘lured’ to an ‘obscure location’ outside LA’s W Hotel on November 6 2021 to iron out a disagreement.


Earlier this month, an LA detective testified CCTV footage of the alleged assault appeared to show Mayers firing a gun.

When it came to Superior Court Judge ML Villar’s decision to make Mayers stand trial they only decided whether the case had sufficient evidence – not whether a crime was committed.


In a resulting lawsuit, Ephron claimed after an exchange of heated words that Mayers ‘pulled out a handgun and purposefully pointed it in the direction of [Ephron] and fired multiple shots’.


His left hand was ‘struck by bullet projectile/fragments’ and Ephron needed medical attention.


He’s seeking £20,000 in damages.


Mayers was arrested in April 2022 in connection to the shooting after landing at Los Angeles Airport following a trip to Barbados with his then-pregnant girlfriend Rihanna.



Rihanna was thought to have been shocked as she watched the scene unfold.
