A$AP Rocky Is Reportedly Countersuing His Landlord For Damages

In September, a New York City landlord filed a lawsuit against A$AP Rocky, claiming the rapper had turned a bathroom into a recording studio, removed a chandelier, and made other alterations that damaged the apartment. Now, Rocky has filed a countersuit, TMZ reports. The rapper is claiming that the landlord's negligence caused two floods in the unit, one of which forced him to rent elsewhere for a month. It seems that the rapper believes some of his alterations to the apartment raised the value of the property. He's suing to retrieve his $40,000 deposit, plus damages, according to TMZ.
