Concert-goer Lisa Wade claims the hip-hop star lashed out at her as he made his way through the crowd during his performance at the Philadelphia on Aug. 31. The young mother filed a criminal complaint with police earlier this month  and A$AP Rocky was subsequently charged with misdemeanor simple assault.

The 24-year-old star, real name Rakim Mayers, has yet to address the legal action, but the charge has since prompted school officials at York University in Toronto to cancel his scheduled show there on Wednesday saying, "The event cannot proceed until this matter is resolved."

However, organizers are eager to make it clear that the cancellation does not mean they think A$AP Rocky is guilty of the alleged assault, reports TMZ.com.
