Drake and Future’s Tour Bus Targeted in Jewelry Heist
Millions of dollars worth of jewelry has been stolen from the tour bus rapper Future shares with Drake. The hip-hop stars are currently performing for fans on their joint Summer Sixteen Tour, and while they were onstage at the Talking Stick Resort Arena in Phoenix, AZ on Tuesday night, thieves targeted their tour bus.
The culprits snatched a briefcase full of jewelry, estimated to be worth between $2 million and $3 million, and managed to get away unnoticed, according to TMZ. Sources tell the website the stolen goods belonged to Ciara’s ex-fiance, but Drake was livid when he learned about the heist, and video footage of his reaction shows the “Hotline Bling” hitmaker lambasting security staff while waving his arms around in disbelief. The theft has since been reported to police, who are said to be reviewing the venue’s security footage to try and identify the suspects. The Summer Sixteen Tour is expected to continue as planned in Los Angeles on Wednesday night, when the rap stars will perform the first of three dates at the Staples Center. These shows are sure to be star-studded – the rappers welcomed Lil Wayne and UGK star Bun B to the stage for a concert in Houston, TX on Sunday night, and Drake locked lips with his rumored girlfriend Rihanna during a performance in Miami, FL last week. Representatives for Drake and Future have yet to comment on the jewelry heist news.
