A$AP Rocky's mother, lawyer arrive at Swedish court

The U.S. rapper pleaded not guilty on Tuesday (July 30) to a charge of assault on the first day of a trial in Sweden that has drawn global attention and prompted President Donald Trump to intervene on the artist's behalf.

The 30-year-old performer, producer, and model, whose real name is Rakim Mayers, was detained on July 3 in connection with a street brawl in Stockholm in the early hours of June 30, and later charged with assault causing actual bodily harm.

Two of his associates are charged with assaulting a man and have been held in custody since they were arrested.

The story shot to international prominence when U.S. president Donald Trump contacted Sweden prime minister Stefan Lofven to see if he could have the rapper released.

Lofven has said he will not influence the rapper's case.

Sweden's judiciary is independent of the political system.

Mayers, best known for his song "Praise the Lord", was in Stockholm for a concert.

He has had to cancel several scheduled shows across Europe due to his detention.
