Rapper A$AP Rocky has been arrested for allegedly shooting a man on a Los Angeles street last year.

 Police detained the performer, real name Rakim Mayers, at Los Angeles International Airport on Wednesday, NBC News reported.

Los Angeles police were investigating Mayers, 33, after a man claimed the rapper shot him near Vista Del Mar and Selma Avenues on November 6 around 10.20pm.

The victim claimed Mayers approached him on the street and fired a handgun at him three or four times. 

One of the bullets reportedly grazed his left hand. 

Mayers had reportedly been walking with two other people at the time of the shooting. It is unclear who he was with.  

Police arrested the rapper with the help of Immigration and Customs Enforcement. 

A representative for Mayers did not immediately respond to DailyMail.com’s request for comment.

Rihanna, 33, was spotted at an airport in Barbados on Friday where she met Mayers and his family. She wore a vibrant mini dress that showed off her baby bump.

The couple looked relaxed as they greeted one another and chatted in the terminal with their loved ones by their side. 

Their travels came as shoe designer Amina Muaddi, the woman accused of having an affair with Mayers during Rihanna’s pregnancy, fiercely denied the allegations. 

Muaddi took to Instagram on Friday to issue a statement after social media was alight with claims the rapper had cheated on the heavily pregnant singer with her. 

She wrote: ‘I’ve always believed that an unfounded lie spread on social media doesn’t deserve any response or clarification, especially one that is so vile.

‘I initially assumed that this fake gossip – fabricated with such malicious intent – would not be taken seriously.

‘However in the last 24h I’ve been reminded that we live in a society that is so quick to speak on topics regardless of factual basis and that nothing is off limits.

‘Not even during what should be one of the most beautiful and celebrated times in one’s life. Therefore I have to speak up as this not only directed towards me but it is related to people I have a great amount of respect and affection for.

‘While Rih is continuing to live her serene, best dressed pregnancy life and I go back to my business – I wish everyone a beautiful Easter weekend!’

A source directly connected to both artists had earlier told TMZ that the cheating and split rumors were ‘100% false on both counts’, adding ‘one million percent not true. They’re fine.’
