The man can be heard yelling throughout the video, presumably using the 'n word' at one point and calling thieves who stole his and his girlfriend's pricey watches 'black b*****ds.' He was shirtless and had a tattoo that read 'UK Made, Cali Paid' on his side.
"Please calm down, babe, I beg you please calm down," the girl pleads and "Just breathe, babe breathe." The girl is seen crying as she returns to her Lamborghini at the end of the video. Officials with the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department claim the pair was robbed of a $1,000 Michael Kors watch and a $19,000 Rolex.
According to Sheriff's officials, the couple returned to their vehicle early on Monday morning after an argument in a parking lot on Sunset Strip in West Hollywood, when they were approached by up to six individuals driving a black Rolls Royce at roughly 1 am, reported KTLA. The perpetrators then assaulted them before robbing them of their watches, the female victim informed the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.
