Nike have ceased their partnership with A$AP Bari amid allegations of sexual assault. In a statement given to GQ, a Nike spokesperson has said ‘We can confirm that we are no longer working together.’

A$AP Bari has since released the following statement on Twitter:

A misleading video clip featuring adult content and activity has been released to the public without my knowledge or consent. 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. Being raised by strong women who taught me to respect everyone, I’m disappointed in the situation as well as myself and will reflect on the situation appropriately.



Bari, the founder of VLONE, worked with the Swoosh on one of the year’s most sought-after releases. A High version of the Air Force 1 and a Nike Vandal are currently in the roll-out process, with pairs being sold through pop-up stores during an international ‘Money Tour’. When GQ asked what would happen to them, Nike’s response was that they ‘don’t have anything further to share.’ Stay tuned and we'll report more as the story unfolds.
