Purportedly, she placed a bag down near the entrance of the embassy, threw liquid from coca-cola bottle at the doorway and shouted: "I'm going to blow this motherf-er up."

She returned to the embassy the next day and screamed at personnel and made statements about A$AP Rocky. When she refused to leave the embassy, she was taken into custody by secret service agents.

After her arrest, a police report stated that Kanter was charged with destruction of property and unlawful entry.

Rocky,a platinum-selling, Grammy-nominated artist whose real name is Rakim Mayers, has been detained in a Swedish prison since 3 July. The rapper was charged with assault after he took part in a confrontation in Stockholm on 30 June.

The case has earned the attention of a slew of celebrities, including recording artist and producer Sean “Diddy” Combs; singer Justin Bieber; singer Shawn Mendes; actress Jada Pinkett Smith; Kardashian West’s mother, reality star Kris Jenner; singer Nicki Minaj; and rapper Post Malone, as well as Kim Kardashian West.
