A$AP Rocky could have been entitled to a hefty remuneration from the Swedish state had he not been found guilty of assault yesterday.

In addition to the month the rapper spent in detention in Stockholm, he was given two years’ probation and a fine of 12,500 Swedish kronor (approximately $1,300) to split with the two associates who were also convicted. But, according to GQ, had the verdict gone Rocky’s way, the 30-year-old rapper would have been eligible under Swedish law to request remuneration for the income he lost due to the cancelation of 12 European tour dates, with the sum estimated to be worth more than $1 million.

According to TMZ, Rocky makes more than $100,000 per show, meaning his potential losses from the 12 canceled shows would be at least $1.2 million. The rapper’s manager John Ehmann backed this up in an article published by The Hollywood Reporter in July before the whole tour had been canceled.

“He has missed a few shows and if he is continued to be incarcerated we are going to have to cancel the tour, which will result in multi-millions of dollars in losses,” Ehmann said. According to Ehmann, the detention also potentially set back production of Rocky’s next album, as the rapper had scheduled studio time for immediately after the tour.
