ASAP Bari, from the hip-hop collective ASAP Mob of which Kendall Jenner‘s ex ASAP Rocky is also a member, is being sued for an alleged sexual assault by a woman who claims he assaulted and humiliated her by posting video of the alleged attack online.

In court documents obtained by PEOPLE, a woman identified only as Jane Doe is suing Bari, 25, for more than $1 million for an incident that allegedly took place on July 9 in a London hotel where some of the ASAP Mob members were staying.

In the documents filed Thursday, the woman claims Bari — whose real name is Jabari Shelton — burst into the hotel room while she was sleeping and began yelling, “You f—ed my assistant, now you are going to f— with me.”

PEOPLE reached out to Bari’s representative for comment on the suit but did not immediately receive a response.

In the documents, the woman claims when she began to scream “no,” the ASAP Mob co-founder pulled the sheet off of the bed leaving her naked in front of Bari and about 10 other men in the room who were allegedly affiliated with the collective. These men were unidentified in the court documents and referred to as Does 1-10.

The woman claims she ran into the hotel bathroom and attempted to close the door, but found she could not as the singer was physically blocking it.

She claims he pushed his way into the bathroom and proceeded to sexually assault and batter her.

The woman alleges the other men witnessed and recorded the incident. She says Bari let her go when she yelled for him to stop, and alleges he threw her naked into the hallway. She claims she hid in a stairwell and later reported the alleged attack to the hotel manager and asked him to call the police.

The documents state when police arrived they deleted the video of the incident from the singer’s phone.

The woman claims she believes Bari attacked her because she had rejected his advances earlier that weekend. She claims he approached her and asked, “Can I f— the shit out of you?” which she refused.

In the documents, Jane Doe claims Bari and one of the men present during the incident shared the video on social media. The woman claims that the video was released to punish her for going to the police. She also claims Bari’s attorney pressured her to release a joint statement denying the incident took place, which she refused to do.

When video surfaced online shortly after the alleged assault, the creator of the clothing VLONE denied he had tried to force the woman to perform oral sex on him.

“A misleading video clip featuring adult content and activity has been released to the public without my knowledge or consent,” Bari said in the statement on social media. “Comments about myself or anyone being detained or arrested are false. We have resolved this issue amicably among all parties as adults. We were friends before this and will remain friends afterwards. Being raised by strong women who taught me to respect everyone, I’m disappointed in the situation as well as myself and will reflect on the situation appropriately.”

According to Billboard, Nike ended its relationship with the singer at the end of July, having previously collaborated with him on several VLONE Air Force 1 sneakers and a pop-up shop.

Bari co-founded the ASAP Mob — stylized A$AP — which rapper ASAP Rocky later became a member of. Rocky, who dated Kendall Jenner, denounced his friend after the video surfaced but the pair have been spotted together since.
