The other two defendants involved in the case were also released and free to leave the country.

Prosecutors did ask that the star stay in Sweden, arguing that he was a flight risk but the judges disagreed. Because the judges leaned in Rocky's favor, many think that he may not be found guilty for assault.

Prior to his release, celebrity couple Kim Kardashian and Kanye West lobbied the white house to help the entertainer get out of imprisonment.

The star took to Instagram shortly after getting out of jail on August 2. "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," he started.
