Rapper/actor Ludacris almost had to cancel a guest appearance on U.S. TV's THE JAY LENO SHOW on Tuesday (20Oct09) when he found himself stuck in an elevator.
The Area Codes hitmaker admits he suffered a close call on his way to a Los Angeles studio to film a segment via satellite link - and he was convinced his brief entrapment was the work of prankster Ashton Kutcher and his former MTV show Punk'd.
After being rescued from the elevator, Ludacris told presenter Jay Leno, "I almost didn't make it. We got stuck in the elevator and I thought I was being Punk'd! Luckily that's not the case. It was only for about four minutes, so I'm good."
