Shawn Mendes Reveals He Got Roughed Up By Drake's Security

September 14, 2017

Drake’s security will not let just anyone through to see the Canadian rapper. Apparently that is true even if you’re one of the biggest pop stars in the country right now.

Shawn Mendes revealed to Jimmy Fallon on the Tonight Show last night (September 13) that he saw Drake backstage at a recent concert performance from the Weeknd.

The “Mercy” singer said he had met Drake on two previous occasions, so he figured he would go up to him to say hello.

Well, Drake’s security apparently did not recognize the 19-year-old pop star. Mendes says that one of Drake's security guards had his arm hooked behind his back.

Drake intervened after he realized what had happened.

Mendes, by the way, says he definitely does not hold a grudge.
