Drake Insists He Didn’t Get Robbed
A thief stole millions of dollars worth of jewelry from Drake's tour bus during a stop in Phoenix on Tuesday (Sept. 6). As TMZ tends to do, the outlet had paparazzi pestering Drizzy for some answers. But the OVO frontman denied having been robbed at all.
Technically, Drake is correct. The jewels actually belong to Future the Prince, Drake's DJ. But the jewels were still lifted from Drizzy's tour bus and he was understandably upset in some video that captured the aftermath of the robbery.
Police arrested a man named Travion King for the robbery yesterday (Sept. 7) morning. Cops described him as a homeless man. He was arrested Wednesday on the campus of Arizona State University with a briefcase containing the stolen jewelry in his possession.
The jewels were lifted from Drake’s tour bus outside the Talking Stick Arena in downtown Phoenix while the rapper was performing at his Summer Sixteen Tour show. TMZ reports that Tavion King worked at the Talking Stick Arena for concerts in the past, but was not working the night of the robbery.
You can view the video of Drake denying the robbery above via YouTube. You'll also see Rihanna get out of the car shortly thereafter and not even look at the cameras. Despite all the overwhelming evidence pointing to Drake and Rihanna dating, the couple has not gone public with their relationship. Drizzy’s dad Dennis Graham swears the pop stars are just friends even though the two recently shared an onstage kiss.
