A$AP Rocky was reportedly jumped in an elevator at a hotel in Auckland, New Zealand.

According to TMZ, the rapper got into a dispute with several other men over the elevator. In Auckland for a Thursday night concert, sources say that A$AP Rocky was at the Pullman Hotel around 3am and was getting into the elevator with some women when three unnamed men also attempted to get in. When Rocky tried to tell them there wasn’t enough room, a fight erupted.

Rocky was reportedly attacked immediately, with the men punching him in the head and face as he tried to protect the girls. Sources claim the men were heard yelling “F— A$AP!”

Hotel security eventually ended the scuffle and the police were able to arrest one of the suspects, a 35 year old who was arrested for assault and resisting police.

Rocky wasn’t severely injured in the melee, at least as far as anyone knows thus far. But he did acknowledge the incident via Twitter. He seemed dismissive and playful about the attack.
