While a man who appears to be Bari, whose real name is Jabari Shelton, can be heard saying, “You f*cked my assistant.

Initially, the rapper claimed on Twitter that the video was ‘fake’ though he later stated that the video was between ‘friends’ and that they had ‘resolved this issue amicably among all parties as adults’ and she was still his ‘friend.’
He said in the statement to Billboard: ‘
A misleading video clip featuring adult content and activity has been released to the public without my knowledge or consent. Comments about myself or anyone being detained or arrested are false. We have resolved this issue amicably among all parties as adults. We were friends before this and will remain friends afterwards. Being raised by strong women who taught me to respect everyone, I’m disappointed in the situation as well as myself and will reflect on the situation appropriately.
While A$AP Bari denied the sexual assault allegations, the alleged victim took to Twitter to identify herself and confirm that the assault did happen. Many people praised the victim for her bravery as media outlets began to bombard the woman with questions asking her if she wanted to talk. However, the page seemed to be inauthentic and not a real person. The account is no longer active on Twitter.
