Pittsburgh rapper Wiz Khalifa recently discussed his love for R&B singer Rihanna and briefly touched on spending a few hours behind bars on a drug possession charge. #JailSelfie
While he said RiRi is a close pal, Khalifa did not think twice when asked who is a heavier smoker.
When asked if he’s every gotten high with Rihanna he casually confessed, “Yea, that’s the homie,” adding that he smokes more than the “Diamonds” singer and was trying to convert her to papers because “she smokes blunts and I smoke joints.” (NY Daily News)
The Pittsburgh native also revealed how he snuck a phone behind bars.
“They’re tryna figure out how many grams I had,” he added. “How ironic.” The real irony was that he got behind bars with his cellphone. “They didn’t search me enough so I took a selfie in jail,” he told Hot 97 when asked how he was able to manage bringing his phone with him. (NY Daily News)
Recent reports claimed Texas police were on the prowl to find out how Khalifa pulled off a jail selfie.
