Rapper A$AP Rocky was involved in a heated feud with security at the MTV Video Music Awards.
The Problems lyricist is seen in newly released video from Sunday’s awards ceremony in Brooklyn, New York being restrained by girlfriend Chanel Iman as he argues with a security guard outside the event.
The model is seen being pushed aside by the rapper, real name Rakim Mayers, as he gets in the face of the unidentified man before the couple walk away.
A woman at the scene is heard saying Rocky wanted to exit the red carpet, although it’s unknown if that was the reason for the confrontation.
The 24-year-old entertainer and his well-dressed date were seen later in the evening leaving the VMAs via the city’s gritty subway system.
Rocky and Chanel were romantically linked in April, shortly after reports of the rapper’s short-lived romance with Rihanna, who opened for the star on her Diamonds world tour.
The rapper insisted, however, their relationship has never been anything more than professional.
“Yeah I expected people to say that me and Rihanna were sleeping around. We’re just cool,” Rocky told MTV News. “Man dudes be tryin’ to front like they tappin’ Rihanna’s [anatomy] and all that, but they don’t be hittin’ it.”
The star acknowledged many men are keen to insinuate they have been involved with the singer.
But A$AP confessed he’s careful to steer clear of such speculation in an effort not to get in trouble with his current girlfriend.
“I ain’t tryin’ to get in no trouble with no Rihanna rumours because I’m not f**king Rihanna,” he said. “That’s somebody’s elses.”
