Post Malone has continued to cement his reputation as a friendly guy by donating towards a deposit for a Scottish singer and fan he met at a pub last weekend to buy a house.
The chance meeting happened on a Friday night at Wunderbar, a restaurant and bar in Glasgow. The singer, Gregor Hunter Coleman, was booked to play his regular when someone told him that Busty – who had just finished his own show in town – was on his way.
“When I saw him come in, he was dancing and singing, clapping and all that,” Coleman told BBC Radio 1. I was like, “My friends will never believe this story.”
When Coleman finished his set, Post Malone told him he “broke it” and offered to buy him a drink. However, Coleman declined the initial offer. “I was like, ‘Listen, I’m saving for a house, so I don’t drink alcohol now,’” Coleman said. “What was ridiculous, my guys were like, ‘Why did you turn down a drink from Post Malone?
Fortunately, Post Malone understood where Coleman was coming from. “He said to me ‘That’s cool, man, I respect that,'” explained the Scottish singer, “and he hugged me.” Then he said, “Do you want to come and do a private party?” I was like, ‘Well, of course!’ It’s Post Malone. This is the opportunity of a lifetime.”
At that point, Coleman waded into the complete surrealism of the situation and performed at Posty’s after party, where the two continued to hang out. “He spoke to me and offered to help me put a deposit on my house,” Coleman revealed.
While the exact number is unknown, Coleman explained that Posty didn’t exactly “buy him a house,” but his donation would definitely go a long way. “Obviously that’s helped me get a deposit now,” he told the BBC.
When the two parted ways, Post Malone gave Coleman a number and even offered to listen to his original music. It’s good that Wunderbar has a permissive dress code — earlier this year, Post Malone reported that he was turned away from a posh bar in Perth, Australia because of a tattoo on his face.
Meanwhile, the “If Y’all Were’t Here, I Would Cry” singer’s “Rockstar” tour kicks off in July, bringing him across North America in support of his upcoming fifth LP Austin. Get your tickets here.
