Roughly one year ago, A$AP Rocky was charged with assault for allegedly slapping a female fan in the face during his set at JAY Z’s ‘Made in America Fest’ in Philadelphia. As TMZ points out today, the fan, whose real name is Lisamarie Wade, has sued the Harlem native over the incident for damages of at least $75,000. Wade filed a private criminal complaint… but eventually withdrew it when she couldn’t locate him to serve him with the complaint. The alleged victim claims in her filed documents that the incident caused her to suffer from a variety of ailments interfering with her ability to “enjoy society with her minor child as a young, single mother.” Furthermore, she also argues that Rocky has a history of similar behavior, citing an incident where he appeared to slap a fan at a concert in Sydney, Australia two months before the Made in America set. And there was also the clash with a fan at his concert at Chicago’s House of Blues.
