It was just reported by Nike that they are officially cutting ties with the A$AP Mob co-founder A$AP Bari and his brand VLONE. According to Nike, they have decided to part ways amid the disturbing video which shows Bari sexually assaulting a woman in a hotel room.
Last year, A$AP Bari toom his VLONE brand and teamed up with Nike where the two labels created exclusive versions of the Air Force 1 for ComplexCon. Upon the release of the rare sneakers, it was stated that more collaboration work between the two brands was happening but it’s obvious at this point all of that is officially over.
A$AP Bari made a statement about the video soon after it was released to the public.
“A misleading video clip featuring adult content and activity has been released to the public without my knowledge or consent,” Bari stated. “Comments about myself or anyone being detained or arrested are false. We have resolved this issue amicably among all parties as adults. We were friends before this and will remain friends afterwards.”
