EXCLUSIVE: A$AP Rocky’s Years Long Nasty Battle w/ Landlord Finally Ends
theJasmineBRAND exclusively reports, A$AP Rocky has dropped a nasty years-long court battle with his former New York landlord, with the two agreeing to dismiss their dueling lawsuits.
The rapper’s landlord, Scott Crowe, filed suit against A$AP accusing him of trashing his luxury condo and leaving him with $175k in repairs.
Back in October 2013, he leased a New York condo in a luxury building to the rapper. A$AP moved out of the unit in August and the landlord said the property was left in complete despair and damaged throughout and he failed to make to restore the home to its original condition.
The landlord claimed the home was left with damaged floors, carpet was installed in the upstairs bedroom and not removed, the custom chandelier which existed in the stairwell was removed, broken fireplace, corner of the fireplace mantel was broken, floors in the downstairs living room were damaged, walls throughout were damaged due to him installing and removing art work, kitchen cabinets were scratched and damaged, all security cameras and associated equipment installed were removed.
He explained the unit was
left in a generally filthy state with dirt, huge piles of debris and garbage throughout the unit.
Crowe sued the rapper seeking in excess of $175k, for the entire cost of repair and demanding the court order him to return the fixtures he took with him, along with the unpaid rent he owed
A$AP responded, denying the damage done to the unit was his fault and slapped him with a counter-suit demanding $50k in damages. He said during his time at the home his landlord failed to maintain or make repairs to the property – pointing out that he failed to prevent water from flooding into the unit at one point which caused it to be flooded with water both in Summer of 2015 and Summer of 2016, which caused the rapper’s property to be damaged.
He said the unit became unfit for human habitation and he was denied the use and enjoyment of the home for one month where he had to find and pay for another place to stay.
A$AP counter-sued demanding $40k for the security deposit he never got back, despite leaving the unit on the agreed date, and $10k for the inconvenience he was caused by the flooding. He also wanted the lawsuit against him tossed and the ex-landlord pay his legal bills
On July 12, docs were filed in the case revealing A$AP and Crowe have agreed to a final discontinuance. Both sides agreed to end their lawsuit against the other and the entire case will forever be closed.
