Post Malone had no issue getting bugged while at a Utah convenience store.
Salt Lake City's KUTV reported that employees at a 7-Eleven got a shock when the rapper suddenly walked into the store during the night shift last week. While the rapper's appearance was one thing, it was his purchase that really caused employees to gasp.
Lani Roberts, who owns the 7-Eleven, said Post bought a box of seasoned mealworms, something Lani simply described as "gross." Often times, dried mealworms — which is, by definition, insect larva — comes in different flavors and have the consistency of a light potato chip.
While there, Post snapped photos with employees at the store.
Post has been seen in the Salt Lake City area multiple times over the past few years, as he owns a home nearby.
In 2019, he purchased a 12,702 square foot mansion in Cottonwood Heights, a ritzy area of the city not far from many famed ski resorts. TMZ said he paid $3 million for the home, which includes five bedrooms, six bathrooms, a fire pit, basketball court, wine cellar, home gym and hot tub. Post was also said to be putting in a recording studio, an underground bunker and adding 30 bunk beds for his friends.
The affable rapper is so popular in the area that a local sheriff once had to urge locals to let Post relax.
"Yes, he is here in the county. But, he is just on vacation. No, he is not performing at the high school game tonight or does he have any involvements with the game. He has asked that our office assist in stopping people (mostly kids) who are coming to where he is staying to visit him," the Morgan County Sheriff said in a Facebook post in 2018, prior to Post's mansion purchase. "If you see him out on the town feel free to say hello, he has been very kind and respectful to all who have talked to him. Our office will enforce those who want to trespass on the residence he is staying at, he is just a guy trying to enjoy his vacation. We just wanted to help stop some rumors we have heard!"
