A$AP Rocky Says Bye
No more Sweden for a while?
ABSURDISTAN (Rixstep) — Here he is. In a chartered jet. Leaving Sweden as fast as he can, once the Stockholm District Court ruled in the case.
The verdict isn't in until 14 August, but Rocky & Friends were let go.
First stop was probably to Grand Hôtel on Blasieholmen. Paying a bill for a month at one of the country's most expensive hotels must have been a thrill. As it surely was when having to cancel a dozen gigs around Europe and Russia.
Rocky's announcement on Instagram was still pulling in 1,000 new likes per minute, seven hours later.
THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART TO ALL OF MY FANS, FRIENDS AND ANYONE ACROSS THE GLOBE WHO SUPPORTED ME DURING THESE LAST FEW WEEKS I CANT BEGIN TO DESCRIBE HOW GRATEFUL I AM FOR ALL OF YOU THIS HAS BEEN A VERY DIFFICULT AND HUMBLING EXPERIENCE I WANT TO THANK THE COURT FOR ALLOWING ME BLADI AND THOTO TO RETURN TO OUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS THANKS AGAIN FOR ALL OF THE LOVE AND SUPPORT
Celebrity lawyer Leif Silbersky, the lawyer first recommended to Julian Assange back in 2010, was called on to comment by Sweden's MSM, and he wasted no time calling the mess 'a triumph for our justice system in Sweden', something that must have raised a few eyebrows, given all that's transpired.
But, for now, Rocky says bye.
