ASAP Rocky won't be completing his European tour as scheduled.

After getting into a physical altercation with two men in Sweden, the rapper is now being detained by the Swedish government in Stockholm.

A video of the encounter began to circulate the internet last week.

In it, Rocky is seen throwing a man onto the ground in a fight.

The man was one of two men that allegedly followed Rocky and his crew him through the streets of Sweden.

Rocky addressed the altercation in an Instagram post.

SO A FEW DRUG ADDICTS ARE NOT MY FANS , WE DONT KNOW THESE GUYS AND WE DIDNT WANT TROUBLE , THEY FOLLOWED US FOR 4 BLOCKS , AND THEY WERE SLAPPING GIRLS BUTTS WHO PASSED , GIVE ME A BREAK

"So a few drug addicts are not my fans. We don’t know these guys and we didn’t want trouble. They followed us for 4 blocks and they were slapping girls butts who passed. Give me a break." Rocky wrote under the post.

Rocky later turned himself into the police to give his side of the story, TMZ reports.

And due to a court ruling, viewing Rocky as a flight risk, he will remain in a Stockholm detention center for two more weeks, according to The Grio.

“He, of course, is very disappointed and this is a catastrophe for his tour,” Rocky’s lawyer, Henrik Olsson Lilja told the New York Times.

The European tour was scheduled to hit London, Ireland, Germany, Russia and more.
