A$AP Bari is suing the woman who accused him of sexual assault, TMZ reports. According to the report, the A$AP Mob co-founder is suing for defamation and civil extortion, claiming the accuser’s claims were to pressure him into settling out of court.

The case stems from a video that surfaced in July 2017 depicting an alleged assault. The woman in question, identified only as Jane Doe, later sued Bari (real name Jabari Shelton) for $1 million. In May this year, Bari was arrested in London, where the attack was alleged to occur, on two counts of sexual assault.
