Reports recently claimed that A$AP Rocky was being held in "inhumane conditions" while being detained in a Swedish jail while awaiting the possibility of a trial for his involvement in an altercation.
Rocky's lawyer, Henrik Olsson Lilja, clarified the situation, and translated from Swedish website SVT, he states, "[A$AP Rocky] has never talked to TMZ or any third party regarding the circumstances when he was arrested, ie when he was in the prison. He was then treated and treated properly. However, he has experienced the conditions in the arrest as very simple and has experienced that it smells urine in the cell in the arrest. However, not in detention. The conditions in the arrest cell can in that respect be criticized."
Lilja added, "He has lacked appetite at the beginning when he was arrested but tries to eat to the best of his ability. He was to receive a visit from American staff at an early stage when he was arrested, but understood that staff from the embassy were not allowed to enter. At a later date, some day later, however, he has been visited. If this is a violation of the Vienna Convention, he cannot judge. He does not know any other information in the TMZ article."

According to TMZ, A$AP Rocky is being held in a Swedish jail with inhumane conditions. A source close to Rocky's situation told TMZ that there had been feces hurled about and left uncleaned as well as food not fit for human consumption. Rocky was also left to sleep on a mat with no blanket. What's more, the cell next to his holds a man with severe mental issues who reportedly bangs his head on the concrete on a nightly basis and spreads feces throughout his cell.
Rocky reportedly hasn't eaten much more than an apple during his five days in this Swedish jail. To make matters worse, Rocky says he was denied an opportunity to speak with a U.S. Consulate when the official arrived at the detention center. If that's the case, Sweden may have violated the Vienna Convention for Consular Relations treaty which both the United States and Sweden signed that affords foreigners like A$AP Rocky the right to speak with a U.S. Consulate immediately after being arrested.
