Post Malone's unlucky streak continues as armed thugs break into his home days after car crash
Post Malone should be having a great year, following the smash success of his sophomore album, Beerbongs & Bentleys. He's already won a Billboard Music Award and an MTV Video Music Award for hit single. There's a good chance he'll win a Grammy Award for Best Rap Song, and Artist Who Most Needs A Shower.
However, Post Malone has had an unlucky streak this summer. His luxury jet took off from an airport in New York City, and blew out two tires. Instead of flying to its original destination of London, the plane was forced to make an emergency landing in New Jersey. Afterward, Post let his fans know he was okay, and his haters know how felt about their death wishes. And his first public words after landing were perfect. He told a TMZ reporter, "I f*cking hate flying."
Just weeks after that scare, Post cheated death once again. The 23-year-old rapper-singer-face-tattoo-addict was involved in a high speed car crash. His assistant was driving, and crashed into a Kia in West Hollywood. Thankfully, neither nor his assistant suffered any major injuries. However, the vehicle was badly damaged and had to be towed away. The Beverly Hills Police Department reported that no alcohol was involved, although Post Malone looks like he bleeds Bud Light.
Well, now the talented hip-hop artist has suffered another case of bad luck. According to TMZ, three armed gunmen robbed his old house in the San Fernando Valley. Reportedly, the thieves pistol-whipped the current resident of the property, and one of them yelled, "Where's Post Malone?" Luckily, Post had not lived there for months, and the resident had no connection with him. The men stole about $20,000 in cash, jewelry, cell phones and other items.
The police are investigating the burglary and trying to determine it's related to other celebrity home invasions in the area. Reportedly, suspects stole a safe from the home of rap duo Rae Sremmurd just hours before the break-in at Post Malone's old house. TMZ reports that Wiz Khalifa, John Mayer, Bella Thorne and Christina Milian have all been victims of burglaries or attempted burglaries as well.
Post Malone has not publicly commented on the robbery, most likely because he is mourning the death of Mac Miller. The acclaimed 26-year-old rapper died of an apparent overdose, just after releasing his fifth album. Hip-hop fans were shocked by the news. It's no secret that Mac went through some dark times, suffering a public breakup with Ariana Grande and a highly publicized drunk driving accident. But it seemed like he was bouncing back. In his tweets, he wrote about how excited he was to go on tour.
Post was friends with Mac, and recently revealed to TMZ that they were working on a collaborative album. It's sad we'll never hear this project, but hopefully we'll hear many most Post Malone projects in the years to come.
