Taxi drivers in Paris are currently engaging in massive anti-Uber protests, blocking major transit routes and burning tires, and some pop stars currently in the City of Love are caught in the action. Courtney Love was apparently in an Uber near the airport when protesting cabbies surrounded her car. She claims they took her hostage for an hour and smashed the vehicle with bats.


Love seems to have crossed paths with Kanye West before the incident, and indicated that he managed to lay low and avoid the chaos (based on this tweet from Team Kanye Daily the rapper made it to the Louis Vuitton menswear show.)


Love then claims her entourage paid a couple motorcyclists to drive them to safety, at which point they were pelted by rocks right in front of the police. Fortunately, the rocker eventually let her Instagram followers know she was fine, but she also made it clear she has no love for the French government’s handling of the situation. Check out her dispatch from the scene and video of the incident below.
