AceShowbiz - French Montana's driver reportedly was assaulted and robbed outside a Manhattan hotel on Sunday morning, June 13. The incident took place outside the Chelsea hotel, where a man was fatally shot just three days ago, according to PageSix.
The news outlet reported that the rapper's 18-year-old was targetted because of his $300,000 Richard Mille Watch and a $40,000 gold Cuban link chain. Both items were taken by the culprits, who were two men in black asks.
The assailants allegedly approached the driver around 4.50 A.M. when he was standing outside his car. They hit him before trying to take the chain off his neck. The driver refused to take to give in, prompting one of the men to brandish a gun and fire at the ground. In fear for his life, the driver eventually gave them his watch and necklace before they fled the scene with his valuables.
Prior to the robbery, a 25-year-old man named Byron Morales from Brooklyn was killed outside the same hotel. He was shot on his torso when he was reportedly leaving dinner at Tao Downtown Restaurant.
French, meanwhile, was said to be staying at the hotel. Rumor has it, the rapper is in New York City to film visuals for his new single.
The "Unforgettable" rapper recently released his latest song and music video for "FWMGAB" or "F**k With Me Get a Bag" which earned praises from P. Diddy. Calling the track "song of the summer," the rap mogul gushed in an Instagram video, "We make hits. We been making hits all yall lives. Your whole lives, ever since yall been born. Even before you were thought of, we been making hits. And we not gone stop this summer, alright? Song of the summer."
