  • During episode 355 of the "TigerBelly" podcast on Thursday, comedian Bobby Lee shared that an up-and-coming musician mistook him for record producer and DJ Steve Aoki.
  • The incident, which he dubbed a “nightmare,” happened while he and his then-girlfriend Khalyla Kuhn were attending a Fourth of July party at an unnamed “famous person's house.”
  • According to Lee, an “unknown but talented musician” walked up to him and called him “Steve.”
  • He corrected the woman by telling her his name was ‘Bobby’ but then, “she goes, ‘Steve’ again” as she apparently did not hear his response.
  • Kuhn added that she was proud of the way Lee handled the situation, recalling the way he “grabbed her forearm” and said to the musician “‘Oh my god, I think you think I'm somebody else nice. I'm not Steve Aoki, I'm Bobby Lee.’ She also added that Lee “said something funny like, ‘I'm so much fatter than him.’”
  • While the discussion was lighthearted, the episode wrapped up in a somber tone as the couple announced that they are breaking up.
