A$AP Rocky was filmed jumping a fence to get to his hotel ahead of the Met Gala.
The 34-year-old rapper was seen using a female fan’s face as a “springboard” as he jumped a barricade to get to the Carlyle Hotel in New York on Monday.
Rocky was caught pushing through crowds that had gathered at the hotel’s entrance.
Wearing a black hoodie and glasses, he held on to the barricade as he jumped over it.
His hand briefly pressed on the woman’s neck as he tried to find his balance.
The woman, identified as 21-year-old student Madelyn Llanes, 21, responded with confused screams and winced.
The rapper – who has a son with Rihanna – then turned to face the shocked crowd before heading to the hotel.
The video, posted to Twitter by journalist Philip Lewis, quickly went viral.
One fan wrote: “The power of celebrity is to use someone’s face as a stepping stone and they look at you in awe lol.”
Another added: “He was holding this woman’s face for balance.”
Madelyn later recounted the incident in a TikTok video, claiming Rocky gave her the middle finger after he jumped the barricade.
She said: “Basically someone taps me on the shoulder and I turn around and I see it’s A$AP Rocky but my brain doesn’t understand it’s A$AP Rocky.
“He said, ‘Honey, I have to get through,’ and I said, ‘No,’ and then he started pushing and I just turned around.
“All of a sudden he’s right here and his hand is literally on my face and he hops over. And he’s like a thank you middle finger and walks away.”
Rocky later attended the Met Gala with Rihanna wearing a plaid kilt with ripped jeans and a blazer.
His baby mum, 35, wore a white Valentino dress that included a blanket of faux white flowers covering her entire torso and a large train.
To make them look even more dramatic, she wore chunky white sunglasses with huge diva lashes on the front.
Critics on Twitter mocked the look, claiming she looked like “whipped cream.”
One wrote, “Rihanna has really kept us waiting the entire time just until she looks like fancy whipped cream.”
Another tweeted, “Robyn Rihanna Fenty is a vanilla bean frappuccino/whipped cream with AD**n Red Cherry on the Doggone TOP.”
Comparing it to a wedding cake, someone else wrote, “Tonight, A$AP Rocky took what appeared to be a giant wedding cake to the Met Gala…It was later discovered that Rihanna was inside.”
A fourth wrote, “I love that the Met Gala theme changes every year, but Rihanna’s ‘duvet cover’ theme stays the same.”
Rihanna announced in February that she is pregnant with her second child while delivering a stunning halftime performance at the 2023 Super Bowl.
It comes almost nine months after she and Rocky had a baby boy.
