West Hollywood, CA – After returning from a stint in London, Drake has been in Los Angeles for the last few days. As he and his entourage were arriving at the West Hollywood restaurant Delilah on Tuesday night (July 17), they had an unexpected run-in with an angry Uber driver.
The man was upset Drake and his bodyguards allegedly dinged his car with the door of their black SUV. In a video captured by TMZ, the man can be heard screaming “fucking idiot” as Drake looks on from across the parking lot.
Drake appears to walk off and the man calls the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputies. Once they arrived on the scene, they reportedly declined to take a report because accidentally dinging a car isn’t a crime.
As the man finally leaves the scene, paparazzi ask him what happened. He replies, “Fuck you paparazzis. Fuck you, man” and drives away.
Drake is having an incredibly successful month. Following the June 29 release of Scorpion, he’s smashed multiple streaming records, including the most single-day streams on Apple Music and Spotify. The 25-track album debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, where it’s remained for the past two weeks.
Most recently, “In My Feelings” hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 thanks to a little boost from the #DoTheShiggy internet dance challenge.
