Drake Cancels All Meet & Greets Following Christina Gimmie’s Death


Fans of Drake won't get the option to meet their idol at his upcoming Summer Sixteen Tour which kicks off July 20.

Drizzy pulled the plug on his VIP packages, particularly the $1000 meet & greets, and purchasers have been informed that the sessions are now canceled due to "scheduling issues" and are in the process of being refunded, reports People.

Fans of the Toronto rapper suspect it's due to the instability surrounding the music industry at the moment.

Earlier this month, The Voice breakout artist Christina Grimmie was shot to death during a meet & greet after her show in Orlando. During her funeral, Grimmie's brother gave a touching speech where he revealed Grimmie met her shooter with open arms. "When the gunman came, he was very quick, it happened so fast, her arms were open and she saw Jesus next," he said. "Her arms were open for him, her arms were open at all times. I love you Christina, you are the best."

Drake is just one of several high-profile celebrities putting the kibosh on meet & greets. Earlier this year, Justin Bieber decided against it after he said they left him "emotionally exhausted to the point of depression."
