British rapper Example was abducted by Serbian gangsters after playing a gig in the country.
The Midnight Run hitmaker, real name Elliot John Gleave, claims he was taken to a boat where he was bizarrely ordered to join in a karaoke session.
He only managed to escape after diving overboard and making a frantic swim for the shoreline.
The rapper tells Britain's Daily Record newspaper, "They kind of just put their arm around me and took me to their car and back to their boat to do karaoke. I was trying to get away and they were very calmly but forcefully saying 'No. You're not going anywhere.' I knew if I didn't get off the boat I was going to be on it for much longer than I wanted to be.
"There were guns and s**t knocking about and these weird prostitute people. I dived off and swam to shore. They were all laughing at me as they sailed off. I don't know if that's rock 'n' roll. It's just weird."
