Earlier this week, it was reported that his tour bus had been robbed and over $2 million worth of jewelry had been lifted in the process during the Summer Sixteen tour stop in Phoenix. Technically, Drake is correct when he says he wasn’t robbed—the jewels belonged to his DJ, Future The Prince. A 21 year-old man, Travion King was later arrested for the robbery.
But when Drake was stopped by TMZ and asked about the robbery, Drake said he wasn’t “robbed,” and all in all, seemed pretty dismissive about the entire thing, which was puzzling because he was caught on video looking pretty upset about the incident directly following the robbery. Maybe he was downplaying the entire thing because he was out with Rihanna? Or maybe he just doesn’t want to give future thieves any ideas. Who knows.
Either way, Drake is probably feeling okay, all things considered. It was just revealed that along with Jay Z, Diddy and Dr. Dre, the Toronto rapper made Forbes’ annual Hip Hop Cash Kings list, pulling in $38 million last year. It was also announced that he’ll be collaborating with Kanye West on a yet-to-be-titled joint album, so no worries for Drizzy.
