Courtney Love‘s “Celebrity Skin” was not enough to keep her from getting caught in the midst of a nasty situation in France.
On Thursday, Love took an ill-fated ride via Uber, the transportation app that has expanded overseas. On her way through the streets of Paris from the airport, Love’s car became a casualty of taxi drivers’ protest against Uber. (The drivers believe that the company is unfairly undermining their business.)
“They’ve ambushed our car and are holding our driver hostage,” Love Tweeted. “They’re beating the cars with metal bats.”
The Hole frontwoman, 50, chronicled the harrowing experience on social media, giving a play-by-play of the situation. In the end, she emerged safely, updating her followers that she “paid some guys on motorcycles to sneak us out” and “got chased by a mob of taxi drivers who threw rocks.”
