Artist Lethal Bizzle says he ‘cheated death’ in a car accident in London on Tuesday night. The grime star, real name Maxwell Ansah, crashed his beloved bright red Ferrari 458 following an event in London’s Shoreditch. According to website SuperCarKids, the car is less than two weeks old, but following the violent smash, it has already been written off.
After the accident, Bizzle posted an image of the smashed car on Instagram, with the caption: ‘I cheated death tonight. Wrote off my Ferrari 458.’
He continued: ‘F*** it tho, s*** happens, I’m still breathing. Hold tight @urbz1 hope ur bless bro.’
Earlier in the night, Bizzle attended the first birthday party of the restaurant Sushisamba and bumped into X Factor judge Nicole Scherzinger.
The 29-year-old rapper from Walthamstow, North London, has previously described his cars as being ‘like his girlfriends’. He’s even gone as far to writing a song about his Audi R8.
Despite owning several super cars, Bizzle has shown in the past that he is far from careful when driving them. He admitted to Clash Music that he crashed his very first car, a Fiat Uno, after just two months. He was also involved in an accident where his friend drunk-drove through a red light.
Bizzle says he was involved in the accident but he wasn’t driving. He told the Clash Music: “It was two in the morning and my friend bust a red light at a crossroad. He had a few drinks- I don’t know what he was thinking.”
Bizzle is well known for his phrase ‘Stay Dench’, and has since set up clothing brand Dench with his cousin, Arsenal footballer Emmanuel Frimpong. According to Bizzle, the term Dench is a complimentary term that can be used to describe ‘anything you want’. We’re guessing the fact his Ferrari has been written off is far from dench.
