In New Zealand this week in the wee hours, A$AP Rocky got into what he calls a “lil scuffle” and TMZ calls an “ambush” that had three men “punching him in the head and face.” The altercation reportedly came after the “L$D” rapper told the attackers there wasn’t any room in the elevator he was using. Then, per TMZ:

“Witnesses say the suspects knew who they were dealing with because they were yelling ... ‘F**k A$AP!’ Hotel security eventually broke it up until cops arrived and nabbed one suspect—a 35-year-old local who was booked for assault and resisting police.”

Rocky was Down Under for a concert on Thursday night; after, he’s playing in Australia through Feb. 28. And he tweeted that he's fine:

Then retweeted a bunch of “A$AP Rocky defense squad” items:

Anybody remember when Pretty Flacko almost threw down in a London bagel shop, though?
