A$AP Bari Faces Sexual Assault Accusations After Disturbing Video Leaks

ASAP Bari is in hot water after footage emerges of him allegedly trying to force a girl to engage in sexual activities.

 

A$AP Mob co-founder A$AP Bari is facing accusations that he sexually assaulted a woman after a video leaked on Wednesday night (July 12) that appears to show the co-founder of the Mob-associated VLONE clothing line trying to force a woman to give him oral sex. The NSFW clip that originally posted on the @soledout account has since been taken down but can still be found on Reddit and Twitter.

In it, a woman is seen hiding under the sheets of a bed as someone who appears to be Bari (born Jabari Shelton) says, "you f--ked my assistant, now you're going to suck my d--k." The woman says "no, no, stop it, Bari, honestly stop" and flees from the bed as Bari, 25, pulls off the covers and smacks her butt while he says "shut the f--k up b--ch." The short clip ends with her fleeing the room.

According to Hypebeast, Bari responded to the leak on Wednesday night with the comment "Cmon fake the fake edit videos," but that tweet appears to have been taken down at press time. A woman who claims to be the one in the video tweeted her response, writing, "I was forced into bed by Bari and his crew and Bari got upset because I refused to engage in any sexual acts." It is unclear where or when the alleged incident took place. A spokesperson for Bari could not be reached for comment at press time.

Among others weighing in on the alleged incident is Ian Connor, a stylist once associated with the A$AP crew and VLONE, who had a falling out with the team in June after a confrontation at a 2016 VLONE event in Paris in which he was involved in a brawl with Theophilus London and Bari.

Questlove To Executive Produce Broadway Musical About ‘Soul Train’

Soul Train, the audacious dance series that proudly spotlighted black culture while showcasing performances from legendary artists such as Marvin Gaye, Aretha Franklin and more, is the focus of a new Broadway musical with Queslove as executive producer, Deadline reports.

The Roots drummer, who authored the 2013 book Soul Train: The Music, Dance and Style of a Generation, will executive produce the musical alongside, Tony Corneilus, son of Soul Train host and creator, Don Corneilus. Having worked directly with his father for “several years,” Cornelius’ son expressed gratitude for the impact that the series “has had on the culture at large,” both stateside and abroad.

Playwright Dominique Moriseeau, director Kamilah Forbes, and choreographer Camille A. Brown, are also included in the musical's production team. In a statement to Deadline, Morisseau said that she can’t wait to collaborate with a “legendary creative team of incredible women to celebrate the history and the unsung hero of our nation’s longest running televised music and dance series.”

More than 20 hits from the era are set to be featured in the musical, which will also detail Cornelius’ story in the early days of creating the series. Soul Train debuted in October 1971, and took its final bow in March of 2006. Cornelius died by suicide in 2012.

The musical is slated to debut in 2021, corresponding with the 50th anniversary of Soul Train’s television debut.

Lil Nas X's "Old Town Road" Is No Longer The Number One Song In America

Lil Nas X's bonafide smash "Old Town Road" has been dethroned from its unprecedented 19-week run at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100.

According to the publication, rising alt-pop star Billie Eilish now has the No. 1 song in the country with her track "Bad Guy." The song has been sitting at No. 2 for nine weeks straight. Lil Nas X, who collaborated with the likes of Billy Ray Cyrus, Young Thug, Mason Ramsey and more superstars for various remixes of the song, congratulated the 17-year-old on her first No. 1 hit via Twitter.

"Old Town Road" now holds the No. 3 spot behind  Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello's "Señorita."

The Atlanta musician catapulted to fame after "Old Town Road" made the rounds. Initially, it was removed from Billboard's Country chart for reportedly not implementing enough elements of the genre. Since then, it has shattered records and expectations.

Just a few weeks ago, it became the longest-running No. 1 in American music history, breaking a record held by Mariah Carey, Boyz II Men, Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee and Justin Bieber (for "One Sweet Day" and "Despacito," respectively).

Lil Nas X has a lot to be proud of. Congrats on a historic run.

congratulations to billie eilish!! u deserve this!!
