French Montana’s driver robbed at gunpoint outside NYC hotel

French Montana's driver robbed at gunpoint outside NYC hotel

French Montana’s driver was assaulted and robbed 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 gold chain, sources said.

When the driver refused to take off jewelry, one the assailants flashed a gun and fired a single shot into the ground, the sources said.

Cops said the victim handed over his watch and the chain and the two men — who were both wearing black masks — ran away.

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.
