President Trump is said to be working to free A$AP Rocky from his legal sitch in Sweden — and it’s thanks to Kim K and Kanye West for being a part of the job.
According to reports Kim and Kanye lobbied The White House to take on the drama across the pond. A$AP Rocky has been behind bars for more than two weeks now while prosecutors are determining if the rapper should be charged with aggravated assault.
According to TMZ as soon as Kim and Kanye heard about A$AP’s predicament earlier this month, Kanye urged Kim to get on the horn and talk to Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner. Kushner and Kim have relations due to her previous White House work.
Sources say Kim filled Jared in on what was happening, and Jared then took the info to Trump himself … whom, we’re told, acknowledged something seemed amiss.
In addition to Kim and Kanye, Kareem Lanierand Pastor Darrell Scott of the White House’s Urban Revitalization Coalition, also played a big role … helping to connect ASAP’s management directly with Kushner through a phone call.
We’re told Trump told Kushner he believed A$AP Rocky was being held unfairly, and wanted to help. As we reported, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo got involved and unleashed a few deputies in an attempt to get some action. A State Dept. member was supposed to arrive in Sweden Thursday. We’re told the State Dept. is now actively working to get A$AP out of jail, thanks in large part to Kim’s efforts.
However, some feel the State Dept. isn’t moving fast enough. Members of the Congressional Black Caucus called Pompeo out for not doing more, though our sources say he’s been working tirelessly. Fact is … Swedish authorities have been unmoved so far … and our sources say there’s now real fear prosecutors might delay their decision beyond the 3 week mark and keep A$AP in custody.
