French Montana’s name commands a lot of attention, but his driver was the one who captured headlines this morning. He was assaulted and robbed at gunpoint while waiting for the famous singer.

Page Six reports that Montana’s driver was robbed at gunpoint outside of the Dream Hotel in Manhattan on Sunday morning. This was days after a man in Brooklyn was shot and killed outside the same hotel.

The driver is just 18-years-old and he was robbed for his chain. His door was opened by two men in black masks who started beating and kicking him while trying to take his chain.

He didn’t want to give up the chain, and then one man fired a handgun blast into the ground. That is when French Montana’s driver gave up his chain and watch to the two men. The ran away and are still at large.

French Montana is staying at the hotel at 355 West 16th Street. As of this writing the culprits are still on the loose.
