ASAP Bari is facing a lawsuit in connection with a car accident he was involved in back in July.
TMZ reports Bari has been sued by the victim who was injured in the crash. The lawsuit accuses the A$AP Mob co-founder of driving his Mercedes-Benz “carelessly, recklessly, and negligently” before colliding with another vehicle driven by a man named Jorge Baez.
Baez is suing Bari for more than $30,000 in damages, as he alleges the accident left him with serious injuries, not to mention an assortment of medical expenses.
“It was nice of Kanye West to buy A$AP Bari a new Maybach and enable him to move on like nothing happened, but something did happen and A$AP Bari must pay for his negligence,” Baez’s lawyer Jared Newman told the outlet.
The news arrives just a week after Bari was kicked out of his fashion label VLONE due to his behavior.
VLONE announced the news on Instagram on Oct. 7, saying Bari’s “behavior is contrary to our collective.”
“VLONE is the stamp for creatives who stand tall, thriving on individuality, caring less about conformity that has long governed the fashion style of society,” the label wrote. “Create your own stylish rules, set your own trend, embed your own morale in which you can express yourself creatively without limitations. In the new era of VLONE, our brand will embrace distinctive creatives, who defy the norm and inspire the willing.”
VLONE continued, “In closing, we will not partake in any irrational behavior associated or related with Jabari ‘Younglord’ Shelton. He has no authority to style himself as “Mr. Vlone,” use or license VLONE – this behavior is contrary to our collective.
