Sean Kingston — SAVES HIMSELF from Driving Drunk … Blames

Exclusive 061413_sean_kingston_launch_v2Sean Kingston was thiiiiis close to making a TERRIBLE decision last night — getting behind the wheel of his car after a night of boozing — but at the last second, he GOT OUT OF THE DRIVER”S SEAT … thanks to our camera guy.

The 23-year-old rapper was leaving Playhouse nightclub in Hollywood around 2am after a night of partying … and beelined straight for the driver”s seat of his Bentley.

But right before he hit the road, an intoxicated Sean had a moment of clarity … and JUMPED out of the driver”s seat so a sober person could take the wheel. The funny part … he actually tried to blame our sources for shaming him into making the right move.

“This is what our sources wants to catch — they want to catch a DUI!” Kingston says. “NOT ME!!!”

We”re glad he made the right decision … but there”s one thing that”s still bothering us about the situation — would he have driven the car if our camera WASN”T there
