French Montana’s driver had his $300,000 Richard Mille Watch and a $40,000 chain snatched from him at gunpoint outside the Dream Hotel in Manhattan Sunday morning — days after a Brooklyn man was shot and killed outside the swanky hotel, police sources said.
The 18-year-old driver was standing by his vehicle outside the Chelsea hotspot at around 4:50 a.m. when two men began punching him and attempting to yank off his $40,000 gold Cuban link chain, sources said.
When the driver refused to take off the pricey necklace, one the assailants flashed a gun and fired a single shot into the ground, the sources said.
Cops said the victim handed over the chain, as well as his $300,000 Richard Mille watch, and the two men — who were both wearing black masks — ran away.
Richard Mille brand watches are a favorite among celebrities like tennis ace Rafael Nadal, Brazilian soccer star Neymar, martial arts wonder Jackie Chan and actress Natalie Portman.
In his latest single “FWMGAB,” which dropped Friday, French Montana raps that his “little chain costs more than your big chain.”
The 36 year-old rapper — real name Karim Kharbouch — is staying at the hotel at 355 West 16th Street, sources said.
Early Thursday, 25-year-old Byron Morales was fatally shot in the torso outside the trendy hotel — possibly after leaving dinner at nearby Tao Downtown Restaurant.
Hours later, rapper Busta Rhymes was spotted in the area known for its nightclubs.
It’s dangerous out in these streets.
