Flavor Flav Was Nearly Killed When A Boulder Dropped On His Car

Get the Full StoryWhen I sit down this Christmas to read to my niece from our family copy of The Little Hype Man Who Could, which has been passed on for generations, I ll be sure to add in a coda to include Flavor Flav s most recent victory over the jaws of death. According to TMZ, we can now add a careening boulder to the long list of people, activities and inanimate objects that have tried, but failed, to take ya boyeeeeee out before his time. Today, Flav is shaken but unhurt after a boulder crashed into his car yesterday as he was traveling from Las Vegas to LA. Nice try, mother nature, but you re going to have to work a lot harder and a lot smarter if you want to squash Flavor Flav s indomitable spirit and head.

When that boulder tried to tell Flav times, up, he was probably initially a little scared given his track record with women, but then he must have looked down at his chest and realized NOBODY, not even a rock-hard, stone-cold hunk of implacable granite tells Flavor what time it is. OK, maybe Brigitte Nielsen, but that s it! TMZ reports:

Flavor Flav is lucky to be alive, escaping death by only a few feet after a massive boulder struck his car.

A rep for Flav tells us he was on a road trip from Vegas to L.A. Tuesday when the rain caused a boulder to fall down a cliffside in La Tuna Canyon and smash the right side of his vehicle. We re told the collision caused Flav to briefly lose control of his vehicle, thankfully, he was able to safely get it to the side of the road.

Luckily, Flav is up and talking, following the accident he tells us God is good and that he came very close to death but is super grateful to be alive.

We re told that Fav seems to be physically fine, though mentally he is shaken up and he wasn t the only one. A driver who saw the whole thing happen began to freak out just before stopping to make sure the rapper was okay.

Luckily for Flav, his team helped him get AAA to the scene, as his car was totaled, and he s out safe.

Here are some photos of the wreckage. I hope someone from his team also brought him his reading glasses. You can also see that Flavor s car was severely damaged as well.

Flav was arrested in Las Vegas back in October on charges of domestic battery but those charges were dropped after Flav pleaded no contest. So the accident probably wasn t caused by the Las Vegas Sheriff s department pulling out some Wile. E. Coyote moves in order to get their man. But just to be on the safe side, Flav should probably keep one eye to the skies from now on to avoid any potential falling anvils headed his way.
