A$AP Bari has admitted sexual assault over an attack on a woman in east London in 2017
American hip hop fashion designer ASAP Bari has admitted carrying out a sex attack on a woman in an east London hotel.
The 27-year-old, real name Jabari Shelton, pleaded guilty at the Old Bailey to one count of sexual assault after a video emerged of him attacking his victim in July 2017.
His plea came after a video emerged of a woman being molested in a hotel room.
The star, from Manhattan, New York, flew to the UK on Tuesday to attend court.
The defendant, who has an address in Clapton, east London, had been expected to deny two charges and face trial.
But he pleaded guilty to one charge on Thursday.
He wore a white balaclava as he arrived at the court building near St Paul’s Cathedral this morning.
Bari is a founding member of A$AP Mob and head of fashion label VLONE

He appeared before Judge Zoe Smith QC in courtroom 13 of the famous court building this morning.
