Stakes are not only high for A $ AP Rocky in his case in Swedish attack … the European country itself will be forced to pay UNTOLD MILLIONS if he or she finishes at last.
Something we've seen about the Swedish law that ups the stakes dramatically … if a person is charged with a crime and found not guilty, the country may be in the hook for all the money defendant winner lost due to imprisonment and litigation.
In the case of A $ AP … that's a fate. He was in jail for going to 3 weeks and it was all but certainly he was formally charged Thursday with an aggravated assault. The possibility to go out of jail once he is charged is slim in the absence, since Sweden considers him a risk flight .
At the time he was going to the test, the months could be passed, and that means a bunch
He has ended the cancel 12 shows and booked for 7 more through the month of September.
It is not clear exactly how much Rocky will pay for each rig – but between 2014 and 2017, the booking fee is reported from each concert range from $ 80k to $ 120k. This is 2019, so let's say his flat quote these days are north of $ 100k.
The longer he sits in jail, the more stakes … $ 2 miles, and maybe even more.
Here's the rub. The law states that the country "may" be forced to pay a defendant winner. They do not refer to "may," but if history is any lesson, Sweden does not want to cut Rocky a break.
