Some of you might have dreams at night about manhandling Shawn Mendes – but the 19-year-old popular singer was indeed roughed up by Drake’s security guard – during an unfortunate encounter…
Shawn Mendes, the Canadian super-hot singer, was on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon, where he told this story of how he almost got thrown in jail for trying to touch fellow Canadian singer Drake, during a Weeknd concert.
“I’m watching The Weeknd, and we’re up on this riser, and Drake’s also there watching the show with like another few artists and stuff. And I go over like, ‘Oh, that’s Drake. I’ll go say hi. He must remember me from previous experiences like twice.’”
“I go over and I see him. He’s a huge guy, right? So you don’t just go over to him. I guess not. So I go over to touch his side, and his 6’6″, 300 pound security guard…
Next thing I know I’m in the middle of The Weeknd show with my arm hooked behind my back. Drake’s security guard just has me just completely at his mercy. And I’m like, ‘Oh no!’
I see Drake look over, and in my eyes it was like, ‘Please help me. Please, Drake.’ In that moment, if he didn’t remember who I was, I probably would have…I don’t know what I would have done. I would’ve been in jail, yeah… I was terrified.”
