Bobbi Althoff says that Lil Yachty was "super awkward" ahead of their recent interview and that she nearly bailed. The viral TikToker reflected on the experience during a recent podcast appearance, as caught by DJ Akademiks.

“I walked into his house and it was super awkward because he’s really like kind of awkward. And, I’ve heard that going into it, but me with another awkward person is like-- I think it’s because you guys aren’t awkward, maybe that’s why. Because he was awkward," Althoff began. "I walked into his house. He didn’t even like say hi to me. So, then I was like, ‘let’s go to the bathroom.’ So, then we go to the bathroom and then, we like get out and he’s just sitting there with his two assistants and he’s not even acknowledging that I’m in the room. My camera guy is setting up and I’m just sitting there on my phone. And then he comes up and is like 'oh, hi,' and gives me a half-hug and I’m just like, 'hi,' then he goes back to sit."
