The two happened to be at the same The Weeknd concert. Because Mendes had met Drake a couple of times before, he thought he would walk up and say, “Hi.”
Unfortunately for Mendes, Drake’s “300-pound security guard” grabbed him by the arm and put him in a restraining hold.
Mendes said, “I’m like, in the middle of The Weeknd show with like my arm hooked behind my back. Drake’s security guard, like, has me, like, completely at his mercy.”
Fortunately, Drake stepped in and told the security guard to let Mendes go. Nonetheless, Mendes said of the experience, “I was terrified.”
