He also accused the two men of sexually assaulting women. "It is not a fair process", the congressman said in a statement to The Associated Press.

TMZ alleged that Rocky was being held in "inhumane conditions" in the Swedish jail, but on Thursday, Rocky's lawyer Henrik Olsson Lilja pushed back on TMZ's allegations in a statement to Swedish media outlet SVT Nyheter. "The conditions in the arrest cell can in that respect be criticized".

XXL has reached out to the Swedish Prosecution Authority for further comment. Rocky was also left to sleep on a mat with no blanket.

Tyga, whose real name is Micheal Ray Stevenson, is the latest to show public support for the New York City native, 30, who has been in custody for nine days after he was involved in a June 30 fight.

"So every time something happens because I'm Black I gotta stand up?" I live in fucking Soho and Beverly Hills.

Rocky's manager John Ehmann described in a lengthy Instagram post the treatment Rocky has allegedly received since being arrested.

Wallin said that all inmates in Sweden receive three meals a day and a professional cleaning company immediately takes care of food spillage or incidents involving blood, according to the BBC. That's when the two groups of men started brawling.

Meanwhile, Rocky's attorney has since responded to reports that Rocky was living in "inhumane conditions" in one of Sweden's detention centers.

That led to Rocky posting videos to his Instagram account claiming he was "INNOCENT".

ASAP Rocky has been held in Stockholm since 2 July and is under investigation for assault and battery.

Since Rocky has been deemed a "flight risk" by Swedish authorities, he will remain at Kronoberg until at least July 19 when the prosecutor "must decide whether to file a prosecution or ask the court for a longer detention period in order to finalize the investigation", per officials. The Supreme Court rejected the appeal, which means the rapper will stay in Swedish custody until his court date.
