ASAP Rocky has been found guilty of assault in the Swedish case which led to the rapper being jailed in the country for three weeks.

The verdict comes a week after Rocky was released following a high-profile trial in Sweden, where he pleaded not guilty to the charges.

Despite the guilty verdict, the rapper will not return to jail, according to NBC News. Rocky and the two members of his entourage, Bladimir Corniel and David Rispers, who were also charged have been given suspended sentences and ordered to pay damages to the victim.

Following his release, ASAP posted a message to fans, thanking them for their support during his stay in Sweden.

"Thank you from the bottom of my heart to all of my fans, friends and anyone across the globe who supported me during these last few weeks. I can’t begin to describe how grateful I am for all of you. This has been a very difficult and humbling experience. I want to thank the court for allowing me, Bladi and Thoto to return to our family and friends. Thanks again for all of the love and support."
