As OK! previously reported, Rocky was arrested at Los Angeles International airport on Wednesday, April 20, for an alleged November 2021 shooting. The victim claimed the record producer was walking with two others when he approached him with a handgun on the street. The victim then alleged Rocky shot at him three to four times and believed one of the bullets grazed his left hand, according to police reports.
After Rocky was taken into custody, the LAPD executed a search warrant at his home. They even used a battering ram to bust through his security gate.
In the aftermath of the arrest, the Fenty founder, 34, has been trying to stay calm for the sake of their unborn child. "This drama is the last thing Rihanna needs right now," a source told Entertainment Tonight.

The couple had been spending time in the Barbados — where they are planning on having their child — prior to Rocky's return to the states.
“Despite strong ties to New York, the plan was to make L.A. the home base once the baby came,” the source revealed to the outlet. “However, Rihanna wants to give birth in Barbados and spend the first few months with the baby there before coming stateside.”
