Sean Kingston

Saves Himself from Driving Drunk

Blames TMZ

6/14/2013 11:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

061413_sean_kingston_launch_v2Sean Kingston was thiiiiis close to making a TERRIBLE decision last night -- getting behind the wheel of his car after a night of boozing -- but at the last second, he GOT OUT OF THE DRIVER'S SEAT ... thanks to our camera guy.

The 23-year-old rapper was leaving Playhouse nightclub in Hollywood around 2am after a night of partying ... and beelined straight for the driver's seat of his Bentley.

But right before he hit the road, an intoxicated Sean had a moment of clarity ... and JUMPED out of the driver's seat so a sober person could take the wheel. The funny part ... he actually tried to blame TMZ for shaming him into making the right move.

"This is what TMZ wants to catch -- they want to catch a DUI!" Kingston says. "NOT ME!!!"

We're glad he made the right decision ... but there's one thing that's still bothering us about the situation -- would he have driven the car if our camera WASN'T there?

How does someone shame you into not driving drunk. It should be that someone talk some sense into you.

That's ****ing ridiculous, "How dare you stop me from doing something illegal that could kill or seriously injure people. Shaming me with negative press when the consequences alone should be enough, monsters."

Idiot. He would have driven and he will have a DUI in the future, hopefully he doesn't hurt anyone else in the process.

TMZ should stick to stories that only cover non-blacks... Everytime they post something about someone black, all the racists come out of the woodworks. It's the 21st century...get it together BIGOTS!!

The jet ski should of killed fat boy, at least that way he wouldn't put others in danger of death. It's obvious that with no cameras he would of driven, and has done so before.
